Glory or Death Records have just today announced their official launch, also revealing the first release from their new “Bow To Your Masters Series” of albums. This first tribute release planned is for one of the most recognized heavy rock bands ever… none other than Thin Lizzy.   

Glory or Death Records sprung from the hearts and minds of Great Electric Quest members Buddy Donner (guitar) and Tyler ‘T-Sweat’ DIngvell (vocals), along with San Jose’s KOOK member Jeff Wilson (bass). The label’s mantra is to “Back the starving artists who relentlessly commit themselves to feed the imagination keeping your dreams and souls alive.”

Glory Or Death Records committed themselves long ago to know their way around the underground heavy music world.  In fact, these three gents have dug a few of the tunnels themselves. They’re no strangers to the DIY musician’s life, with a level of determination that not all possess. They have years of experience in self-funded tours, recording, and releasing their own material in multiple formats.

The label has chosen to start the first of this Bow To Your Masters Series of tribute releases a bit differently than their own bands’ self-funded releases. This first release of the series is to be funded through a Kickstarter campaign.

The lineup for this record is already in the works, and should feature some of the most respected bands currently in heavy music. The teaser video below is a taste. My own very happy self is pleased to say the always mighty Mos Generator has already recorded a monster cover of Thin Lizzy’s ‘Massacre‘. We’ve been told there  is oh so much more where that came from.

Backing the Glory Or Death Kickstarter will give you an opportunity to pre-fund Bow to your Masters Volume 1: Thin Lizzy, in digital format, as well as highly limited first pressings of multiple variants on vinyl (including Wax Mage hand-pressed editions). There are also backer options that include signed prints or original art. The album cover features artworks from David Paul Seymour and Austin Barrett

The four-panel jacket will feature the two artists’ interpretations of classic Thin Lizzy photos and album covers. You can see some of the artwork in the teaser video, as well as the two images you see here. The David Paul Seymour art is featured in the launch video created by Soul Effective Productions, and Austin Barrett is working on his own interpretation of the covers from Vagabonds of the Western World and Nightlife.

As fantastic as they are, Mos Generator is merely the beginning. Additional bands and track titles will be revealed in the future, for the duration of the Kickstarter campaign. The label also plans to throw in some other surprises, by way of one-of-kind rewards from the bands themselves. Jump on in… for Glory or Death!
