On November 16th, Artillery will be releasing their ninth studio album The Face Of Fear on Metal Blade Records, and to get us excited, the band have revealed the awesome cover artwork, and premiered the first taste of the record with the music video for the title track. The album will feature nine new tracks, plus two re-recordings. One is a re-recording of "Mind Of No Return" from the band's 1982 demo, and a 2018 version of "Doctor Evil" from the Legions album.
The band comment on the video: "Most of the scenes for the video were shot at Amager strand park right outside of Copenhagen. And the live scenes go back to when the band visited Japan and played at the Thrash Dominations together with Exodus, Voivod and Sanctuary. The video was shot by the band's good friend Terkel Christensen, who also did the video 'When The Magic Is Gone', from the last album, 'Penalty By Perception'. The song is about dealing the end of man by himself. We create our own phobia about the destruction of the world, but remain disrespectful to the globe."
