“Roxx Records has the distinct pleasure to bring you an album that you may have thought you’ve heard before, but we promise you… you have not! Back in 1988, Greg Minier, renowned guitarist for recording artist The Crucified, would venture out on his own. After the recording of the legendary debut self-titled album for The Crucified, Greg had a bunch of songs he had worked on that didn’t necessarily fit in the mold of The Crucified, with more of a straight-up metal feel to them. So he ventured into the studio to record these seven tracks. Ultimately, these tracks would make their way to REX Records who would offer him a recording contract to release them, and the debut Minier album would be released in 1990. The album would be a fan favourite and critically acclaimed for years to come. It was originally released on CD and cassette only and become difficult to find until 2017 when Retroactive Records would release an amazing remastered and expanded edition of the Minier album. That edition was limited to only 500 copies and included the exclusive ‘Bedroom Demos’ sessions Greg recorded between 1988 and 1990, and a killer exclusive interview. Through the years, working on different project with Greg, Roxx had been after him to do something special with this release. One thing Greg was always questioned on with this Minier album was ‘Where’s the bass?’ Well, guess what? He finally answered that question for his fans! Roxx Records is excited to announce ‘Retooled’ – the debut Minier album touched up to perfection, remixed, remastered and with added bass guitar! If you think you had the debut Minier album, you have not until you hear it with bass! ‘Retooled’ will come in a beautiful black vinyl edition as a part of the Roxx Records ‘Roxx 100 Series’, which is also the first time any version of this album has been on vinyl.” -Roxx Records
Releasing February 24th on 180 gram, 45 RPM vinyl that includes an insert with lyrics and the story of ‘Retooled’.
