QUIET RIOT | METAL HEALTH (180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE RED VINYL/GATEFOLD COVER)
RELEASE DATE: DECEMBER 2, 2016
Quiet Riot broke a lot of rock and roll history book records and made quite a bit of NOIZE
with their mega-platinum smash Metal Health album in 1983. This hard working Los Angeles
power quartet featured the great vocals and writing of front man Kevin Dubrow, bassist
extraordinaire Rudy Sarzo, power drummer Frank Banali and guitar shredder Carlos Cavazo.
Together, they delivered the goods in a big way, making Metal Health one of the first ever
multi-platinum heavy metal albums to go number one. Thanks in part to the amazing smash
cover version of Slade’s Cum On Feel The Noize, Metal Health was and still is a fixture at radio
and retail, and now Friday Music is ever so proud to be the home of this first time 180 Gram
Audiophile Vinyl limited edition release.
The lp is jam packed with stellar metal anthems including the very heavy title track Metal
Health which was most recently used in the opening sequence of the award winning film The
Wrestler starring Mickey Rourke. Plus more radio driven rockers like Love’s A Bitch, the amazing
Breathless and the more blues oriented groover Don’t Want To Let You Go.
For this limited edition release, we have gone back to the original Pasha Records/Epic
Records tapes, which have been mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso. Plus, we have also included a very limited gatefold album cover with all of the
original cool graphics as you remember them. This is a much welcomed audiophile dream for the
heavy metal rocker in all of us. Now, can we sing in unison: BANG YOUR HEAD!
