Tribunal Records originally released LINE OF FIRE’s debut album in 2005 based simply on the fact that Journey is our favorite band. What we realized then was that LINE OF FIRE was as close as we were going to come to having Journey on our label, so we decided to sign them and throw possibly the biggest curve ball at our loyal and devout metallic hardcore label fanbase. To our surprise, we found out how much people still loved Journey and they happily embraced our newest band, LINE OF FIRE and their brand of classic melodic rock.
Besides LINE OF FIRE’s brilliant songwriting it may have also helped that vocalist, Shawn Pelata, was already well known in metalcore circles as being “Dr. Extremus Melodicus” the guest power metal vocalist featured on Killwhitneydead’s most popular albums.
Regardless, LINE OF FIRE’s debut album was universally accepted across the board by fans from all genres and critics raved about the album online and in print magazines. Unfortunately, we came into some financial troubles and it was forced to delete some albums from our catalog and Line Of Fire fell victim to these troubled times. But happily, we recovered and kick started a new reissue division which actually specializes in melodic hard rock. We decided that it was time to reissue LINE OF FIRE’s debut album on Divebomb Records with a brand new mix and mastering job from original engineer, Jamie King. We have also added two new alternate mixes as bonus tracks. So now, we present the deluxe edition of Line Of Fire for all the fans, old and new, who love LINE OF FIRE as much as we do.
