Rejection Overruled (EP)

Sideburn Records


Since 1989
After All aren’t exactly new kids on the block. Formed in 1988, these Belgian thrashers released their first 7 inch EP in 1992, followed by their first full album in 1995. By 2009, six more critically acclaimed albums and four more EPs had followed, supported through European tours with well-known acts such as King Diamond, Anthrax, Overkill, Destruction, Agent Steel, Stone Sour, Testament, Exodus, Sepultura, and many more - and playing highprofile festivals such as Graspop Metal Meeting (with Iron Maiden), Keep It True, Metal Dayz, Alcatraz Metal Fest, Dokkem Open Air and more.

Dawn Of The Enforcer
Hard work pays off. In 2011, After All were invited to join Killfest, touring all around Europe with thrash legends Overkill, Destruction and Heathen. After All’s live reputation – and the self-financed EP the band released in support of the Killfest tour – drew the attention of Roadrunner Records Belgium. After All’s collaboration with Roadrunner resulted in the album ‘Dawn Of The Enforcer’, officially launched at After All’s show as opening act for Judas Priest in Antwerp, Belgium. Ván Records licensed the album for all countries outside the Benelux region. ‘Dawn Of The Enforcer’ proved to be After All’s best selling album so far, gaining critical acclaim of both the press and the metal community - as proven by rave reviews in all leading magazines (including ’10 x Dynamit’ in Rock Hard). In support of ‘Dawn Of The Enforcer’, After All toured Germany with Sacred Reich and continued playing shows with bands as diverse as Queensryche, Manilla Road, Angel Witch, Vicious Rumors or Obituary.

Dan Swanö & Ed Repka
For the last two years, After All have been busy writing and recording music with Dan Swanö handling mixing and mastering duties. The first result of these sessions is the ‘Rejection Overruled’ EP. The exclusive 10 inch vinyl EP contains two brand new tracks - the title track and ‘None Can Defy’ - along with a reworked version of ‘Land Of Sin’, which features a guest appearance by Andy LaRocque of King Diamond fame. The stunning cover artwork - once again by the ultimate thrash metal illustrator Edward J. Repka (Megadeth, Death, Nuclear Assault) - offers a glimpse of a post-nuclear world, perfectly fitting After All’s take on old school thrash metal.

New album
‘Rejection Overruled’ is the official sneak preview for After All’s 9th full-length album, due for release later this year. To get the statistics right: ‘Rejection Overruled’ is After All’s 8th EP, the 6th exclusively on vinyl and the very first on 10 inch. A haunting piece of video art, inspired by the relentless thrash metal pace of ‘Rejection Overruled’ and directed by Jeroen Mylle, is available here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=4taZrZlI8Rs
