URIAH HEEP announces the release of a 2CD/1DVD package of their 30th Anniversary show in 1989, which has only been available on VHS previously. This remastered release is now available digitally and as a 2CD/1DVD set in all new packaging. This release is the culmination of a long process to make sure all of the Uriah Heep back catalogue is available in modern day formats and digitally. The set also includes a bonus audio interview, recorded on the same day as the concert, which was previously only available on picture disc LP and CD for a very limited amount of time. Of this release, Mick Box said, "This is a great meeting of two products, which were always closely linked together, and are now merged into one definitive set. This is the second release on Uriah Heep Records and a great reminder of our 30th Anniversary celebrations!"

For fans of NWOBHM veterans BLITZKRIEG the long wait for new material is finally over. The 7" vinyl EP, Reign Of Fire, will see the light of day on December 8th via Mighty Music in a limited edition of 500 copies embraced by amazing hand-drawn old school metal artwork by Lee Murphy. Ken Johnson (guitars): "We are very excited about the Reign Of Fire EP coming out on our new label/home Mighty Music prior to the new album release in 2018. Let's re-ignite the fire... flame on".
