From The Press Release

Medford (OR) – Southern Oregon melodic thrashers EMISSARY have reformed after a 25-year hiatus to record a new album for Germany’s Underground Power Records, to be released on CD and vinyl later this year.

An official lyric video has been uploaded to YouTube for the demo version of the song “The Silent Treatment.” Check it out at

The band can be seen in the historic new book by NW Metalworx, Rusted Metal: A Guide To Heavy Metal And Hard Rock Music In The Pacific Northwest (1970 – 1995), and the newest issue of The Metal Mag (UK).

The reformed lineup consists of SYLENT STORM’s Jym Harris on lead vocals, original EMISSARY drummer Eric Hoover (who played on the band’s Nowhere Left To Run demo in 1994) and from SONIC OCTANE, bassist Pete Kinney (who originally joined just after the departure of Hoover in 1995) and riff master Tim Dahlen on guitar, who along with Harris composed most of the band’s music in the past.

EMISSARY is known for blending straightforward mid-paced (late 80s/early 90s style) Bay Area-inspired Thrash with classic headbanging US Power Metal. The upcoming LP will feature newly recorded tracks from EMISSARY’s 90’s back catalog plus brand new material as well. Their West Coast American style has been compared to bands like DEATH ANGEL, PANIC, FORBIDDEN and early METALLICA.
About Michael Juvinall (6057 Articles)
I am a devoted husband and father. I have been a voracious horror fan since the early age of 5 and metal fan since I was 14. I watch all horror films but my great loves are classic horror films: Universal Monsters, Werewolves, Hammer Horror and an all-around affinity for things that go bump in the night! I'm also a huge fan of extreme metal music.
