TRAXTER - ROCK N' RACE THE FINISH LINE (CD) 2019 Roxx Records
- Limited to 500 Copies
They were great!!!!
We are extremely excited to be bringing you another cool reissue of an album that was originally released in 1991 and is impossible to find today. Hailing from Bakersfield, California TRAXTER.
Their one and only album ‘Rock n’ Race’ was a classic in the Christian Metal underground and has been nearly impossible to find.
You maybe have never heard of TRAXTER but let me tell you something. In my opinion, this is one of the better 80's metal bands. They only had 1 album but it was great. It's a real shame that they went un-noticed because they should have been on Pure Metal or Enigma will all the other great Christian Metal bands. They are actually better than most of the bands to come out of the 80s.
Some of the songs are very reminisent of Tesla, some sound like it's Vince Neil of Motley Crue, some sound very Messiah Prophet band.
When working with the band on bonus tracks for this one it was learned sadly the band had never recorded any other tracks outside of ‘Rock n’ Race’ BUT they did manage to play a new song live that was never properly recorded and we are excited to include that as a bonus track here for all to hear. The track is called ‘Lovin’ Star’ and was intended for the next TRAXTER release that never came to be, but luckily we found a decent live recording of this previously unreleased track and have added it here to complete this TRAXTER collection.
TRAXTER ‘Rock n’ Race – The Finish Line’ all tracks have been remastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound and updated cover art, design and layout are courtesy of Scott Waters of No Life Til Metal Graphics. This will be a one-time special pressing of only 500 copies.
