Blitzkrieg was formed in October 1980 after signing a record deal with Neat Records. In the early stages of their career they regularly produced gigs in England, but then later split in 1981. Brian Ross most notably went on to join Satan, another metal band, along with stints in Avenger, Lone Wolf and Unter den Linden. In 1984 Ross and fellow founding member Jim Sirotto, along with guitarist Mick Proctor (ex-Tygers of Pan Tang), bass player Mick Moore (of Avenger) and drummer Sean Taylor (Satan/Blind Fury, ex-Raven) then decided that it was time to record the Blitzkrieg album that was originally planned to be released in 1981, A Time of Changes. It was later released in 1985. The song "Blitzkrieg" was then covered by popular American band Metallica on the Creeping Death EP. Metallica's drummer, Lars Ulrich commented that Blitzkrieg was one of their main influences, along with Diamond Head. The song was rerecorded in many different styles through the band's career, but the Buried Alive b-side version of Blitzkrieg was the recording which inspired Metallica's cover of the song for their Creeping Death EP, as the first alternate version was released on the A Time of Changes album in 1985 (a year after the Creeping Death EP was released). Blitzkrieg started recording songs in 1990 for the release of the album, 10 Years of Blitzkrieg, in 1991. In 1992 they started recording more songs for the next album, Unholy Trinity, released in 1995. Blitzkrieg was highly appreciated by the public[who?] after the release of these albums, and they were even more appreciated when the album, Ten, was released in 1997. Ten received a good response from the public, and was later backed up by the release of The Mists of Avalon in 1998, which also brought forward a positive response. Vocalist Brian Ross was then involved in a car accident, which prevented Blitzkrieg from releasing any further material. Six months later, he decided to reform Blitzkrieg and create another album. They released the albums, Absolute Power (a studio album), Absolutely Live (a live album) and Sins and Greed. On August 10, 2007 Blitzkrieg released their new album Theatre of the Damned through their record label Armageddon Music. 2013 will see the return of the mighty Blitzkrieg with the release of their new album (date tbc), which is currently in production. NWOBHM fans can expect a return to the classic Blitzkrieg sound with the powerful new line up which will take Blitzkrieg into the future.
