Haunted By Rock & Roll introduces heavy metal fans to arguably IGNITOR‘s strongest lineup to date and their definitive metallic statement. Featuring eight new original anthems of leather clad glory including “Hatchet (The Ballad of Victor Crowley)” and a cover of “Hung, Drawn and Quartered” by NWOBHM legends (and EMP labelmates) RAVEN.
EMP label owner/founder Dave Ellefson (MEGADETH) who serves as Executive Producer on Haunted By Rock & Roll has been instrumental in attaining a larger audience for IGNITOR and the sky is now the limit for the band that debuted with a record entitled “Take To The Sky.”
“Primitive, primal, down to earth and anthem-oriented for the studs and leather-clad hordes, Ignitor fuse the best of American, British, and German heavy metal from the first half of the 1980’s and spit out songs that shine.” [8.5/10]
– Dead Rhetoric
“There isn’t a lackluster song to be had here, which makes it an absolute must for all fans of true heavy metal might. If you want to keep it true, you can’t go wrong with this one. You just can’t.” [9/10]
– The Grim Tower
“If you grew up during the early 80s when records by Judas Priest, Black Sabbath and Kiss would sit comfortably alongside those of Iron Maiden, Accept and Anthrax, then “Haunted By Rock & Roll” will indeed have you in headbanger heaven.”
– Battle Helm
“Pure genuine Heavy / Power Metal” [4/5]
