Vancouver, British Columbia – April 4th ,2022
For immediate release
On November 24th, 2021, in the city of Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Aggression’s co-founder and leader Denis “Sasquatch” Barthe was arrested by Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers at his home for assault charges against his ex-girlfriend. Last week, the Province of British Columbia’s court system dropped all charges against Mr. Barthe since those allegations were deemed unfounded and unsubstantiated. Unfortunately, while he was in custody, Mr. Barthe’s home studio was raided and multiple valuable Aggression memorabilia were either stolen or destroyed including Banzai Records’ 1987 Full Treatment’s 1st copy ever pressed, original recording master tapes, 80’s unreleased demo tapes, lyric sheets, and irreplaceable religious literature. Since the arrest, Mr. Barthe’s underage children have been harassed and were sent pornographic material via social medias, while he personally received multiple death threats due to his ex-girlfriend online plea. Here is what Mr. Barthe had to say about the events: “There are no winners here, only a broken relationship, broken friendships, and broken families. Live, learn and move on. I wish my ex-girlfriend Annie and her family all the best and I hope she finds peace, love, and prosperity. To the individuals sending me death threats, see you on tour!” Aggression’s new LP will see the light of day at the end of 2022 on Xtreem Music.
‘Field Of Nightmares’ is a four track EP with the eerie opening of ‘Filtering Doom’ and even eerier closing of ‘Gambolling With the Undead’ making up the numbers. Sandwiched in the middle are four blistering slices of prime quality old school thrash, tight and precise, oozing great speedy riffs, thundering rhythms and snarling punk-infused attitude. ‘Poisonous Potion’ and ‘Dripping Flesh’ are thrash belters loosely in the vein of earlier Slayer, ‘Satanic Angel Holy Devil’ is another belter that alternated between fast and breakneck speed, whilst the jaw-dropping ‘Possessed by Dawn’ dispenses with the fast to concentrate purely on the breakneck speed from start to finish.
