Heaven and Hell Records will be issuing Future is Now from Connecticut power metal band ESP in early 2013.
This will be the first time that the album has ever official been released on CD. The release will include the full The Future is Now album and bonus unreleased demo tracks of non-album songs all re-mastered from the best possible sources available by Jamie King at The Basement Studios in Winston Salem, N.C.
ESP formed in New Haven, Connecticut in 1985 and issued their first five song demo in 1986. The demo landed them a deal with Metal Blade records that lead to their inclusion on the compilation Metal Massacre Vol. 8 with the track “Take ’em Alive”. The following year Dream Records release the bands one and only full-length The Future is Now. They would gain momentum throughout the Northeast playing shows with such bands as Fates Warning, Obsession, Liege Lord, and Wrathchild America. The band continued to demo material but eventually split apart.
The Future is Now again and it is time to bring this album back out for the metal hungry masses. Look for it to be released in March. Check out the album trailer HERE.
