Known for their affinity with all things WORLD WAR related EASTERN FRONT are no strangers to supporting military related causes.
On the release of their second album for Candlelight Records entitled ‘Descent Into Genocide’ (Read the Metal-Rules 4.5/5 review here) they donated a percentage of profits from the boxset release to the military charity HELP FOR HEROES.
With this limited edition double vinyl, released on Remembrance Day this year, they will be donating £1 from each sale to The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
On speaking to bassist Destroyer about how this release came about:
‘With 2014 being the centenary year of WWI we wanted to do our part to some how commemorate this important event and decided that following the success of the boxset edition and how well the new album was received by fans and press alike; we would release Descent on double vinyl ourselves in partnership with Mordgrimm Records. That’s another thing that is so great about this release, because it is as DIY as we could make it while maintaining the quality our Troops expect from us. The final track on the album is entitled ‘In Memory Of The Fallen’ and is different to our usual lyrical format in that it is more of a blanket testimonial to those who have fought for the freedoms we still enjoy today. With that in mind we felt it was important to again give something back and support, this time, The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal by donating £1 from each sale of this very special limited edition to this worthy cause; one which is very important to us as individuals and as a band.’
