The first ever tribute album to the band RIOT will be released on April 24th, via Skol Records. The compilation, entitled Thunder And Steel Down Under, was produced by Bart Gabriel (SACRED STEEL, CRYSTAL VIPER, JACK STARR'S BURNING STARR) and will include classic RIOT songs peformed by bands and artists such as: Axel Rudi Pell, Crystal Viper, Attacker, Alpha Tiger, October 31, Savage Master, Night Demon, Dexter Ward and others. The CD will be limited to only 1000 copies worldwide and proceeds from the album will be given to Sir Tony Reale - the father of late RIOT guitarist and founding member Mark Reale.

RIOT’s Fire Down Under, Rock City, Narita, Restless Breed and Born In America are heavy metal classic and their '88 LP Thundersteel helped to shape a genre which we know as power metal. The band's history has been marked by bunch of tragic events: Rhett Forrester, who fronted RIOR between 1981 and 1986 was killed in 1994, the original vocalist Guy Speranza (in RIOT between 1975 and 1981) lost his battle with cancer in 2003, and the band's founding member and leader Mark Reale (who was also the only one constant RIOT member since the beginning of the band) left us in 2012, after suffering from Crohn's disease.

The band left 14 studio albums, and after Mark's Reale death, the remaining RIOT members decided to continue his legacy and after changing the name to RIOT V, returned with Unleash The Fire. Thunder And Steel Down Under is not a usual compilation with bunch of cover songs. It's a celebration of the RIOT and Mark Reale legacy, and a homage paid by both American and European bands and musicians, who were influenced by this premiere act. Tracklisting:

  • Ferdy Doernberg - “Soldier”
  • Axel Rudi Pell - “Warrior”
  • Attacker - “Fire Down Under”
  • Walpyrgus - “Outlaw”
  • Savage Master - “Swords And Tequila”
  • Angelo Perlepes' Mystery - “Sign Of The Crimson Storm”
  • October 31 - “Loanshark”
  • Alpha Tiger - “Flight Of The Warrior”
  • Stallion - “Rock City”
  • Rocka Rollas - “Riot”
  • Evil United - “Altar Of The King”
  • Night Demon - “Road Racin’”
  • Dexter Ward - “Running From The Law”
  • Crystal Viper Feat. Todd Michael Hall - “Thundersteel”
