New York’s heavy metal pioneers Riot V have announced a vinyl pressing of ‘Live At Keep It True Festival 2015’ which was previously only available as a bonus CD for the bands latest studio album ‘Armor Of Light’.

The live recording is being made available through Nuclear Blast Records as a limited edition gatefold double splatter vinyl and is available to preorder now at:
The band, who formed over 40 years ago in Brooklyn, New York and were this year inducted into the prestigious Heavy Metal History Hall Of Fame boast 16 studio albums to their name and a long and absorbing history that can be rivaled by few others. Since their legendary debut album ‘Rock City’ (1977), RIOT has released numerous heavy metal classics, including ‘Fire Down Under’ (with classics like ‘Swords And Tequila’), their masterpiece ‘Thundersteel’ (1988), and the unforgotten ‘The Privilege Of Power’ (1990).

After the death of Mark Reale and the departure of Tony Moore, Todd Michael Hall (from Michigan, USA), completed the line-up of the band, which in the meantime performed under the name of RIOT V under the auspices of the two long term members and main songwriters Donnie van Stavern (bass) and Mike Flyntz (guitar). With the critically acclaimed ‘Unleash The Fire’ (2014), a pure power metal jewel once again underlined the musical importance and influence of the quintet.

The bands latest offering ‘Armor Of Light’ was released this year through Nuclear Blast Records.

You can order the album now on various formats from:
