Ultimatum – ‘Heart of Metal’ Limited Edition Box Set Announced
Posted by Bill Roxx on August 8, 2012

Ultimatum have been hard at work in the studio recording 4 brand new tracks which are scheduled to be a part of the band’s 20th Anniversary release entitled ‘Heart of Metal – 20 Years of Ultimatum’. The remainder of the tracks are set to be a selection of greatest hits selected from the band’s back catalog as voted on by their fans.

Ultimatum has once again signed on with Roxx Records for this brand new release. Being that this is the bands 20th Anniversary, Roxx really wanted to do this one up right for the band and their fans. “We were tossing around the idea of a kick starter, but felt the model is already a little dated” says Bill from Roxx Productions, “we didn’t want to burn people out on the concept, so we decided to get a little creative.”

Ultimaniacs will be happy to know that they can help the band with their recording costs and the label to produce a very special box set! We will be producing and pre-selling a hand numbered, black glossy print, silver embossed box set that will be hand numbered 1 through 100. Only 100 of this box will ever be made, never to be produced again! No gimmicks, no quotas to meet, you pre-order it you will get it!

But wait! There is more! Everyone that gets in on the box set preorder WILL win one of the many pieces of Ultimatum memorabilia donated by the band! All those true Ultimaniacs will be entered in to this very special drawing where we will be giving away many items from the bands personal archives, including Rob Whitlock’s BC Rich Warlock bass guitar, Scott Waters’ custom embroidered satin scarf off his mic stand, signed drum heads and drum sticks, shirts, posters and more! Every one that gets in on this box set pre-order WILL win a prize! And by purchasing this box set you will in turn be helping the band and label fund this project! And there won’t be a long wait. This special box set is already in production and will be delivered before the official CD release which is schedule for October 30th 2012!

Again there will only be 100 of this specially printed box set ever produced, so get your preorder in now before they are gone forever! Also a BIG thank you goes out to Dave Besanson for developing the new artwork for us!

Limited Edition Ultimatum 20th Anniversary Roxx Boxx

Packaged in a deluxe foil-stamped box, the Limited Edition Ultimatum 20th Anniversary Roxx Boxx will include:

1. Heart of Metal – 20 Years of Ultimatum CD (The new CD with exclusive new tracks from Ultimatum. Includes a 12-page full color booklet.)

2. Before the Pit (exclusive Roxx Boxx CD with alternative takes and demo versions of songs from Into the Pit.)

3. Puppet of Destruction [Remastered & Expanded] (the first 15 Roxx Boxx sets will contain a bonus 2 disc version with the Fatal Delay demo)

4. Ultimatum Live at Extreme Mardi Gras & Live at Up From the Ashes III and the video clip for Heart of Metal compiled on one specially made DVD

5. Limited edition Roxx Signature Series guitar pick # 5 featuring Robert Guttierez of Ultimatum

6. Woven Ultimatum patch

7. Four exclusive Roxx Boxx inserts, personally autographed by the individual band members

This box set will be a strictly limited edition of 100 copies and will be hand-numbered. Once they are gone, they are gone! The special items represented in this box set will NOT be made available individually they will only be available as a part of the Roxx Boxx!

The auction is currently up to $117.

Really hoping it goes close to $200 so that at least $100 can go towards the feed the hungry program.

You should be getting weekly updates/emails from now on. The next one should have studio photos and such.

Bit of a problem here, guys. The Before the Pit disc is a CDR. I could go on about that in general, because it wasn't made clear there were CDRs and aDVDR, but the real problem is that it's also a blank CDR. I ordered two copies of the box set, one for me and one for Locky, and both are blank.

Has anyone else checked theirs?

The Fatal Delay disc and the DVD are fine.

Oh, and on the positive side, the four new tracks are BAD-ASS! The two tracks I heard online didn't do much for me. I don't know if I just wasn't in the right mood or they sounded weak on the Internet, but I cranked them here at the house and they sounded sick! All four are great.

My copy of "Before the pit" plays just fine. It is not a CD-R as far as I can tell.

It's definitely a CDR, and totally blank. It doesn't play in anything I have, and iTunes and Windows Media Player show it as blank and ready to be burned to. =(

Ouch!! I am sorry bro, Bill seems like a stand-up guy so I cannot imagine him knowing about it. My copy has the graphics printed on the disc and plays in iTunes with no issue.

My copy plays fine too. Perhaps you just received a bad copy Eyesore. Contact Bill. I'm sure he'll replace it.

I will. I'm just posting it here because others might not have checked their discs yet.

Actually, disregard. There's one place I didn't try: my truck. It plays in my truck.

That's annoying, though, because it won't play in my PC, either laptop, or my stereo. Like I said, iTunes and Windows Media Player flag it as blank, and my stereo says NO MUSIC. =(

If anyone has ripped the tracks, would you mind sharing?
