Debut Album “Armed With Rage” To Be Released By Battery

Danish thrash act Battery will release the debut album “Armed With Rage” on February 24th via Punishment 18 Records (distributed in the U.S. via CM Distro). The band was formed in febuary 2008 by Chris, Andreas and former rythm guitarist Dennis, shortly after the demise of Abattoir (DNK).

The first rehearsal demo was recorded in 2008 and pressed on tape in 15 copies given to friends.
Shortly after, Dennis left the band and the band went on ice until the summer of 2009 when Jannick joined as both first and current bass player.

In 2009, the demo “Born In a Beaker” was recorded and released by the band itself in a limited quantity of 100 copies on cassette, which was spread throughout the Danish underground paving the way for the first gigs – the first being with Crematoria and Pagan Rites in April 2010, and the second in July at the Metal Magic Festival – accompanied by Atziluth on Live-guitar.

Atziluth was soon replaced by Jeppe Campradt until the summer of 2011 where Jeppe became the current rythm-guitarist in Battery.

2011 saw the first release on Deadbangers Productions (also the last release as a 3-piece) entitled “NUKE” which was distributed and sold far beyond Denmark, and soon followed up by the EP “Mental Pollution,” also on tape by/through Deadbangers Productions.

The track list for “Armed With Rage” is:

1. Narcotic Mirage
2. Armed With Rage
3. Indirect Oppression
4. Halo Of Hypocrisy
5. Hostile By Content
6. Vermin Of Fukushima
7. Pyramids Of Deceipt
