DEATH DEALER is back in 2009

Important information…Heavy Metal news of the year!!!

Legendary Canadian power metallers DEATH DEALER have a two-song live 7" included exclusively with the brand new issue of Snakepit magazine. The band will also have their 1983 15-song demo released on March 31 as a double LP by Les Fils Du Metal Records/High Roller Records. A never-before-released 1982 demo will also be included. A CD version of that 1983 demo will be out at the same time via Greece's Sonic Age Records and will feature a previously unreleased video clip for "The Faddist" as a bonus. A 2CD LIVE recorded at the ‘WallOFSound Club’ is coming for the end of 2008 on Marquee Records.

DEATH DEALER was part of a new metallic wave in the mid-'80s but due to certain circumstances they never managed to achieve the success they deserved after recording two albums… Here are the never released Archives of Death Dealer !


DEATH DEALER – Coercion To Kill CD (CultMetal038)
Words are pointless - get ready for the DEATH DEALER assault!!!
This CD is the reason why we at CMC decided to start a record label at the first place. I guess you are all familiar with one of the greatest metal bands ever, DEAF DEALER from Canada. To those of you who live in another planet, DEAF DEALER released only one album in the 80's and recorded a second one, called "Journey Into Fear" that never saw the light of day (officially) but to many metal fans is the best heavy metal album of all time that was never released. But what the hell all these things have to do with "Coercion To Kill" and DEATH DEALER. Well guys, we are talking about the same band!! Yep, so keep reading! Before renaming to DEAF DEALER the band was called DEATH DEALER and they had written a bunch of fantastic songs that most of them were never released or were released in a different form. With a style between NWOBHM and pure U.S. metal, they managed to come up with a unique style led by the breathtaking bass playing of Jean-Pierre Fortin, the divine vocals of Andre LaRouche, the double axe attack of Marc Brassard and Yves Pedneault and the powerful drumming of Michel LaRouche. What you get here is 15 (!) songs that touch metal perfection! It is pointless to start refering to certain titles, 'cause each song deserves its space in the metallic hall of fame so just prepare for the greatest music orgasm you had in a long time. In our days that so much crap is released, this CD will come to your ears as a unique alternative to mediocrity. To us, this is one of the best things we have ever released, so it had our full attention in all fields required, starting from the 20-page booklet (!!), the cult bonus video song of "The Faddist", the great remastered sound and all lyrics, bio's, liner notes and further information that a metal fan should ever ask for. Simply one of the most essential releases of the year that you HAVE TO OBTAIN AT ONCE!! simply cannot get any better than this...this thing is GOD!

How comes Canadians always do it better? Think of the rich Hardrock and Heavy Metal history of the country: Triumph and Rush in the '70's, Anvil and Exciter in the '80's. Death Dealer (later Deaf Dealer) from the French-speaking part of the country might well have been one of the great Metal bands of the early '80's but bad luck (and probably bad management) prevented them from making it really big. Death Dealer debuted in 1983 with the fantastic "Cross my Way" on Brian Slagel's "Metal Massacre IV" compilation album. Following their debut on vinyl, André LaRouche and his boys recorded numerous high-quality demos, which you can hear on their limited edition double album on High Roller Records/ Fils Du Metal. André comments on the early recordings of Death Dealer: "We did record the major demo album at the University of Québec at Chicoutimi (UQAC) in March 1983. This production contains 15 songs, so nearly 80 minutes of music. Also, with some versions of this demo on the tape trading market, I saw some songs added to it, like 'Rapid Fire', a piece we played as a cover from Judas Priest. At that time, the tape of Death Dealer was 15 songs on a full two 45-minute sides. We have a lot of audio cuts taken f
