'No Surrender - 25th
Anniversary is a re-recorded/remixed version Lars Eric Mattsson’s
second album originally released in 1989 to celebrate 25 years
since its original release. This new version sees all vocals
and guitars being re-recorded with the addition of a
previously unreleased bonus track written in 1989 intended
for the original release but which was never used.
‘No Surrender’ is classic
hard rock fused with neo-classical metal all with the unique
Lars Eric Mattsson flavour. Whilst the song writing might
not be as advanced as more recent efforts released under the
Mattsson name such as “Dreamchild” and “War”, this is a
slice of history which shows an artist that has continued to
grow over the years since its initial release.
This album has been released
in a number of different versions sice it's original
release, 12 track vinyl (1989), two different CD mixes for
Europe and Japan in 1989, Taiwanese and Russian editions, a
special "No Surrender + Live" in 2009 as well as this which
sees new vocals and a better audio quality added.
