Special Limited Deluxe Collector's Edition. Previously unreleased in Europe. Classic NWOBHM. Fully remastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology. 12 page full colour booklet - 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork, rare photos and band involvement. MORE'S DEBUT album, 'Warhead', successfully established this London based hard rock band as an act to watch for bigger and better things. Emerging as part of the burgeoning NWOBHM scene and playing every nook and cranny up and down the country, their stock was certainly in the ascendance. Album number two was expected to springboard them into the hard rock stratosphere but - as is often the case - things started to go wildly astray. Before long the band had fallen into a state of almost irreversible disrepair, a predicament complicated by internal rancour and managerial shenanigans. First to jump ship was guitarist Laurie Mansworth (later to form Airrace) followed by bassist Brain Day and - after he had actually recorded vocals for the album - front man Paul Mario Day. Replacement singer Mick Stratton was brought in to re-record vocals parts, a surprisingly effective salvage job which was expertly overseen by seasoned producer Pete Hinton (Saxon) and founding guitarist Kenny Cox. Under such circumstances you'd normally expect a somewhat disappointing and ultimately patchy affair; a rag bag of disjointed styles cashing in on the bands good name. Remarkably, however, nothing could be further from the truth as 'Blood & Thunder' is one of the most impressive of all the NWOBHM releases. Built on little more than armour plated perseverance and gargantuan riffs, the sound is utterly uncompromising. Just like the sound of a jet engine preparing for take-off, this is a record is impossible to ignore.
