Roxx Records is very excited to announce that Italian thrash band ‘Boarders’ have just signed on to their roster for the release of their sophomore effort entitled ‘R- Existence’. While the band had briefly offered this new release as a free digital only download to their fanbase, it is now being remastered to include 5 additional bonus tracks, 3 Brand New Songs and 2 previously unreleased demos, and put on to CD for the very first time.
A band that can trace its history back to the late eighties, Boarders presents a unique melding of the aggressive thrash and melodic metal that draws extensively from the musical trends of that era. And nowhere is that more evident than on the material from the groups debut ‘The World Hates Me’ which was released in 2009.
R-Existence marks a return to form of that melding of thrash and metal with songs certain to garner the attention of those into Megadeth, Metallica, and old school Deliverance. As a matter of fact, Boarders once gained notoriety in Italy as a Megadeth tribute band; hence, the inclusion of the old Megadeth song “In My Darkest Hour” [off So Far, So Good, So What] on their debut release.
Bill Bafford of Roxx Records had this to say about the signing, “We are very excited to be working with Boarders on this release, we have been becoming more and more focused on the thrash scene as the label expands and Boarders is an excellent addition to our roster”
Watch for the Limited Edition CD version of R-Existence and reissued digital editions to hit the streets on December 11, 2012.
