Comments guitarist Michael Stützer:
“The story behind Pain’ is a true story, about an alcoholic who was never listening to his friends or family when they tried to make him stop and quit drinking. And when he got to the point where he realized himself he had to stop it was too late and there was no way out anymore. The video for Pain’ was recorded in Kolding and Randers by Morten Madsen (MSM production) who also directed our previous videos for Legions’ and Live by the Scythe’.”

The lyrics are ARTILLERY as you know them, with subjects concerning the destruction of mankind, double standards, abuse and the looming worst-case scenario. ‘The Face Of Fear‘ was recorded with long-time producer Søren Andersen at Medley Studios. It’s Søren’s fifth time at the helm and once again he manages to deliver a monster production.
Sören Andersen on ‘The Face Of Fear‘:
“Pure and raw! Some of the material of this album was originally written in the early 80’s and that inspired us to go old school this time. Not too many layers, just classic Artillery thrash metal… And Bastholm is better than ever on this one. This is a no-filler album, created together with the band. I’m really proud of the final result and I hope everyone will enjoy it as much as I do!”
