I’m a bit jealous of Europe right now, as long running heavy metal band Blitzkrieg has announced a full European tour set to begin on September 7th. The group has Brian Ross on vocals, who some of you may know as the singer for Satan. I had the chance to see Satan live on their first U.S. tour back in April and it was one of the best sets I’ve seen all year, so I’d be equally interested in checking out Blitzkrieg if they ever came over this way. The band’s newest full length is Back From Hell, which was released last November via Metal Nations Records.

Blitzkrieg European Tour 2014

Blitzkrieg embark on their latest European tour this September starting in their Hometown of Newcastle on September 7th and working their way through Germany, Switzerland, Italy and France.

It is the band’s only tour this year and interest is high.

Everyone of course knows Blitzkrieg for Metallica covering their self titles 1981 anthem but the band have picked up many fans through their own albums; from their first, Time of Changes in 1984, to the latest release, Back From Hell, which saw top marks in all the major European and world wide press.

Blitzkrieg, fronted by Brian Ross who is also vocalist for his other cult metal act Satan, feature longtime guitarist Ken Johnson and now Brian’s son Alan,on 2nd guitar .
