Having been an active band since 2003 and taking worldwide stages by storm after their Massacre Records debut Barbed Wire Metal in 2011, ELM STREET return with their 2nd full-length album and this time their music packs a METAL punch. The album, Knock ‘Em Out...With A Metal Fist is due to be released September 9, 2016, via Massacre Records and features years of hard work and dedication that has shaped the band into a leading force in the heavy metal genre. Years have passed and the years have seen ELM STREET tour Europe on multiple occasions, along with visits to the USA & their home country of Australia with bands Iced Earth, Sepultura, Coroner, Accept, Tankard & Hammerfall. These real-life experiences, along with many others, have painted a strong sound. ELM STREET now showcases that in their new album.
Australian & European fans received a glimpse of the new album when the band took their Heart Racer EP on the road during 2015. This excitement was felt by many and led to ELM STREET renewing their album deal with Massacre Records and focusing on the release of Knock ‘Em Out...With Metal Fist. The new album again features production by Ermin Hamidovic from Systematic Productions (who already worked with the band on Barbed Wire Metal) and features an iconic artwork by Ken Kelly, who has only worked with a handful of bands such as KISS & Manowar. Words are only words, but if Heavy Metal is your genre of choice OR you’re in need of some energetic music then Knock ‘Em Out...With A Metal Fist will be spinning on your record player for years to come!
