...makes Us Survive!
"Headshot ... Makes Us Survive" - is the refrain of the opener "Day Of The Dead" of the 1996 debut of the Brunswick thrash metal institution HEADSHOT, who will celebrate their 30th anniversary in 2023! On the occasion of this event selected songs of the debut "Brain At Risk" (1995) and the follow-up album "Emotional Overload" (1998) completely re-recorded and recorded on CD for the first time with frontwoman Daniela Karrer, who as you know joined the band only in 2008. Headshot have been a bank for years when it comes to hefty, aggressive, SF Bay Area-inspired thrash metal from Germany, and last year they made an impressive comeback with their sixth longplayer "Eyes Of The Guardian"! The first two albums are now completely out of print, but a simple re-release was too mundane for the band to the anniversary, especially since the production of that time is probably no longer up to date. Therefore the quintet decided to completely re-record some of their classics from the early days. Like the last album, the old/new songs were produced at PureSonic Studio Langelsheim by Jost Schlr, who not only breathed new life into the old songs, but also gave them a contemporary, anniversary-worthy sound garment. "...Makes Us Survive" is a great Thrash Metal album - and not only for fans and collectors.
