Heaven and Hell Records brings forth obscure power from New York
HARBINGER was formed in the in Central New York area in 1989 by vocalist Jeffrey Harris, guitarist Todd Hensley, and bassist Billy
Pierce. The band would bring in fill-in drummer Gary Sobolewshi before recording their first self-produced demo and then quickly set about playing the Central New York metal scene.
In May of 1990 guitarist, Tom Mody was handed a cassette with a couple tracks from the HARBINGER demo. Mody was asked to join shortly thereafter and along with him came music he had been demoing over the past year. The two guitar attack of Mody and Hensley would transform Harbinger into a model of their peers with influences of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and Queensryche.
The band continued writing and rehearsing new material into early 1991. With ten new songs sharpened and tightened they meticulously self-produced an unsung power metal classic “The Inevitable” that would be released in the spring of ’91.
Heaven and Hell Records will be releasing a limited to 500 copies CD edition HARBINGER “The Inevitable” fully re-mastered with two never before released demo tracks, packaged in a multi-page booklet complete new artwork, liner-notes, full lyrics, and unseen photos.
