24/10/2014 - CREAM TO RELEASE MASSIVE BOX SET

Shopping for the turntable-owning Cream fan on your holiday gift list just got a whole lot easier (and a lot more expensive).

The pioneering band’s classic catalog will get its vinyl due on Nov. 24 with the descriptively titled ‘Cream 1966-1972,’ a six-LP box that collects its live and studio output on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl and comes in a rigid slipcase. The press release announcing the compilation doesn’t mention anything about remastering, but it does point out that each album will boast “exact reproductions” of the original artwork.

Now available for pre-order, ‘Cream 1966-1972′ traces the rise and fall of the jam-friendly power trio, which brought Eric ClaptonGinger Baker and Jack Bruce together for a tumultuous (yet prolific) brief run before splintering due to tension between band members. They’ve reunited periodically over the years, most recently for a series of shows at the Royal Albert Hall in London in 2005, but this box rightly focuses on their original work.

Since supergroups are quite fashionable lately Germans Γερμανοί Schmier (Destruction), Herman Frank (Accept, Victory) and Stefan Schwarzmann (Accept, Ex-Running Wild) formed Panzer and will be releasing their debut album through Nuclear Blast on November 28th. Commenting on the titletrack bassist/vocalist Schmier said: "We wanted a song that sounds like a steamrolling tank — straightforward in your face! "Panzer' will be a perfect live song 'cause of its intense beat, guitar crunch and the hypnotic chorus! Traditional metaheads might not expect a track like this from us, but the record has a wide range from classical Accept/Priest metal up to speed metal/Motorhead influences — so this track sure stands out with its intensity!"
