Formed in North Wales in 1980, TRIDENT started as a trio by John Owen (guitars/vocals), Dave Alexander (bass) and John Pritchard (drums). They released one of the most sought after and highly acclaimed British 7'' singles entitled "Destiny / Power of the Trident" back in 1983.

TRIDENT easily ranks among the most proud moments for our record label so far. Thanks to the band founder John Owen, we were given access to master tapes of 18 songs in total, most of which see the light of day on vinyl and CD for the first time officially. Not to be confused with another band by the same name from Glasgow, these great musicians delivered fantastic hard rock / heavy metal compositions that had it all to get the band to the top.

TRIDENT ended in 1985 and John Owen formed FILTHY RICH, a great melodic hard rock / metal trio that also released a great single entitled "She's 17 / Love Ain't A Fool".

This is the Double Gatefold LP edition, which features all songs ever recorded by TRIDENT and FILTHY RICH, including both singles, the TRIDENT "Flint Demo", the "Broken Dream" cassette album and additional unreleased tracks, with powerful remastered sound. Comes with great fantasy artwork, 80's photos, band story and lyrics to all songs.

This is definitely one of the most expected NWOBHM reissues of 2017! Limited to 200 copies.
