HADES: Reissue Artwork Posted Online

The artwork for the upcoming reissue of the first two HADES CDs, "Resisting Success" and "If At First You Don't Succeed", has been posted online at www.hadesusa.com. The albums will be re-released via Rock Ridge Music on May 10 in one package, including extensive liner notes, photos and bonus tracks — "Target Fixation" from guitarist Dan Lorenzo's first solo CD, plus a newly recorded HADES song, entitled "Thinktank". In a skillful blending of past and present, "Thinktank" is based on riffs the band created in 1988, plus other new riffs, new melodies and lyrics to create the final product. Mausoleum Records is expected to offer the same package in Europe this summer, along with a HADES live CD ("Live On Location").

HADES was formed by guitarist Dan Lorenzo back in 1978, playing around local rock clubs in New York and New Jersey. The band went on to open for groups such as TWISTED SISTER, OVERKILL, ANTHRAX, MEGADETH, TESTAMENT, and more, touring in the States and Europe until their eventual break-up in 1989. The members of HADESDan Lorenzo - guitar, Scott LePage - guitar (first album), Ed Fuhrman - guitar (LePage's replacement), Alan Tecchio - vocals, Jimmy Schulman - bass, and Tom Coombs - drums, went on to be part of the bands NON-FICTION, DORO, WATCHTOWER, POWER, and SYSTEM ADDICT. HADES reunited in 1998 with new drummer Dave Lescinsky and the band signed to Metal Blade Records, releasing three CDs, "SaviorSelf ", "The Downside", and "DamNation". (Drummer Ron Lipnicki replaced Lescinsky for "DamNation".)

In total, the band released seven full-length recordings. This reissue is of their first two: 1987's "Resisting Success" and 1988's "If At First You Don't Succeed", both originally available on Torrid Records.
