Original Lineup of Thrash Meta

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

With America's societal transgressions reaching a boiling point, it has become necessary for the injustices to possess a voice. While many have attempted, none have been able to address the issues with the intoxicating volatility of New York's NUCLEAR ASSAULT. Therefore, the thrash metal pioneer's original lineup has deemed it necessary to reunite and express America's feelings in its own inimitable manner - furiously!

Vocalist/guitarist John Connelly, bassist Danny Lilker, guitarist Anthony Bramante, and drummer Glenn Evans have returned and are making their presence known throughout the year on aptly monikered 'War Against Terrorism' performance dates. Fusing dexterous yet uncompromising metal with gripping, inspired lyrical content, NUCLEAR ASSAULT is on a mission!

To celebrate the reunion of one of metal's most compelling heroes, Screaming Ferret Wreckords has recorded the band's May 11th, 2002 performance in Attleboro, MA for a Fall CD release!

Formed in 1984 by Danny Lilker (who has also been a founding member of Anthrax, S.O.D., Brutal Truth, among others), NUCLEAR ASSAULT enjoyed a ten-year career that spawned 6 studio albums & EPs and a host of world tours, one of which granted them the honor of being the first-ever US metal band to perform in Brazil (in 1988, performing with the fledgling Sepultura). While emitting a dark sense of humor, the band's catalogue acknowledged the gamut of social concerns, from political tyranny and environmental devastation to capitalistic excess and basic human apathy. Their 1989 opus Handle With Care garnered much critical-acclaim, while its singles "Critical Mass" and "Trail Of Tears" received generous MTV airplay.

Says drum extraordinaire Glenn Evans on the prospect of NUCLEAR ASSAULT in 2002: "It's good to have the original lineup back together. We haven't seen one another for about 10 years, so for me it's very exciting. I'm very pleased with the new 'live' album; from what I've heard so far, the production on some of the older material is better than the studio albums!"

The forthcoming live album represents NUCLEAR ASSAULT's first release in over 9 years. The band awed fans as headliner of New Jersey's Metal Meltdown IV festival and recently ruled the 2002 Wacken Open-Air Festival in Germany. Official NUCLEAR ASSAULT t-shirts and other merchandise is currently available at www.screamingferret.com
