Artillery was forged in the Copenhagen suburb of Taastrup, Denmark in 1982 by Michael and Morten Stützer. Successfully fusing abrasive brutality, precision and strong melodies, with the bracing guitar leads of the Stützer-brothers serving as highlights, Artillery stands among Europe’s oldest and most important exponents of thrash metal.

On August 2nd, Artillery will return to Medley Studios with producer Søren Andersen to begin recording the follow-up to 2013’s critically-lauded Legions. Some working song titles include “Cosmic Brain”, “Deity Machine” and “Sin Of Innocence”.

The as-yet-untitled long player will see release via Metal Blade Records in late 2015. Further info to be announced soon. In the meantime, check out music and videos from Legions now at this location.
