Roxx Records is very excited to announce the next classic Christian Metal band getting their special reissue treatment courtesy of legendary power metal band SACRED WARRIOR with their second official release ‘Master’s Command’.

The year was 1989, the band was hot and garnering rave reviews from their debut album ‘Rebellion’ released the prior year in 1988 via Intense Records. Everyone’s expectations were high waiting for the band to unveil this one, their sophomore effort, and it did not disappoint!

By the late 80’s the Christian metal movement was really beginning to grow. Bands like Bloodgood and Stryper were already very popular on the scene. However, most new bands were either moving towards the popular thrash or pop metal sounds. There were very few Christian bands exploring the melodic and progressive style of bands like Queensryche, Crimson Glory and Fates Warning, but Sacred Warrior did it, and they did it very well!

‘Master’s Command’ was originally released in the Summer of 1989 on Intense Records to rave reviews and critical acclaim. The original release was pressed on CD and cassette only throughout the US with a very limited pressing on vinyl that was only released in Europe. With the resurgence of vinyl, and the limited quantity of this LP originally pressed in Europe it is very hard to find, and if found fetches high dollars on sites like eBay and Discogs. Even the CD pressing can prove difficult to obtain at a decent price these days.

Roxx Records is very happy to announce a very special, and very limited, remastered and reworked version of Master’s Command that will be officially released on April 14, 2017. This special edition features revised artwork that holds true to the original classic album cover courtesy of Scott Waters (Ultimatum, Roxx Productions, No Life til Metal). As well, the CD and vinyl versions were compiled and completely remastered for CD and vinyl by Sacred Warrior’s very own Steve Watkins. Officially licensed through Meis Music Group, we are happy to bring you this very special Limited Edition release.

There will be a limited vinyl pressing of only 300 pieces made available, 100 pieces only will be on a translucent blue vinyl, while the remaining 200 will be on black vinyl. By overwhelming request we are happy to announce we will also be releasing a limited edition CD pressing in a very special digipack version.

Don’t hold out to long, these limited edition vinyl releases have been going really quick, recent reissues from artists like Deliverance, Recon, Oracle and Ultimatum have all sold out quickly!

I always liked Rebellion better than MC by just a smidge, but S.W. had a pretty damn solid catalog overall.

Hey Bill - any chance that Roxx might reissue SW's Obsessions one of these fine days so I can finally get rid of the crappy Greek CD-R bootleg version that I've been living with for about ten years? Very Happy

Master's Command was my intro to Sacred Warrior at that time I was interested in any band on the Intense label

With the original lineup reuniting I have a renewed hope of hearing a live version of the "The Flood" featuring Scott Waters someday (like should have happened at the ill-fated Christian metal festival in IL back around 2005 or so).

This is one I would like to hear samples of prior to ordering - I really want to hear the difference in the re-master. Felt it was a bit of sophomore slump for SW. Good first album, 2nd album let down (expected more) followed by by far their best album (that one really needs some clean up! Would buy it in a heartbeat!)

I do have to disagree about the rave reviews - I knew others folks that thought it was a let down too. When I was part of Cephas fanzine, my review wasn't a raving.....
