UNDER THE OAK - Ripped Up By The Roots LP

229,00 kr

The debut-album from Norwegian Thrashers UNDER THE OAK!

In their own words:

This is an album written form the depths of our hearts and as a TRIBUTE itself to all the good MUSIC who came out in the 80’s .
The Style is all the way from Heavy Metal - Speed Metal and Thrash Metal .
An album for THOSE who are REAL into METAL . We also decided it to sound as it was from the 80's with acoustic drums and no programming, but with much more POWER than it normally was that time .

The inception of UNDER THE OAK took place during the not too distant past. Initially it was just about friends coming together to honor our Speed and Thrash Metal heroes from the eighties, and we fashioned ourselves being a tribute band of that era. We rehearsed songs from Exodus, Testament, Flotsam & Jetsam, Candlemass and so on, until we had a respectable set. We played some shows doing only covers, but as we were progressing, the Thrash-riffs also started turning up. Suddenly we had a bundle of our own songs and we started putting a few UNDER THE OAK-originals into the shows. The result of this is the album RIPPED UP BY THE ROOTS, consisting of 10 original songs and 2 cover songs. Make no mistake, WE ARE STILL A TRIBUTE BAND and will continue paying homage to the eighties, but we will do so both through our own material and through cover songs. A regular UNDER THE OAK show will be a mixture of this, but still weighing heavily on the cover material. So far, we’ve concentrated on American stuff, for some reason, but now we’ve focused a bit on Germany and there will be many surprises in the upcoming UNDER THE OAK-shows.
