Tracer - "Shadow of A Doubt" (audio)

Οι Tracer δραστηριοποιήθηκαν στο δεύτερο μισό της δεκαετίας του ογδόντα. Συγκρότημα μελωδικού heavy metal εξ' Αμερικής (από το Μέριλαντ, γιατί υπάρχουν και οι Tracer από την Καλιφόρνια, οι οποίοι έχουν πλέον μετονομασθεί σε Viking).

Μοναδικό τους δισκογραφικό αποτύπωμα είναι το ντεμπούτο "Screamer in the Night" που κυκλοφόρησε αυτοχρηματοδοτούμενο σε κασέτα το μακρινό 1990. Εν έτει 2021 θα επανακυκλοφορήσει από την δισκογραφική εταιρεία Heaven and Hell Records. (Να σημειωθεί ότι υπάρχει και μία ανεπίσημη κυκλοφορία του album σε cd-r από την Hard Rock Diamonds το 2014)...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Tracer - Shadow of A Doubt from the album "Screamer in the Night" soon to be reissued on Heaven and Hell Records. Tracer first would begin to come together in 1985 when guitarist Kenny Carpenter bassist Todd Rosencrance would put together a cover band called Aces Wild adding drummer Rick Sanchez and vocalist Tony Dant.

The addition of keyboardist Tom Prevost and second guitarist Rob Thompson would also be added to the band. Towards the end of 1985 Aces Wild was still performing mostly cover-tunes but beginning to merge away into writing their material. Towards the end of the decade, Sanchez and Rosencrance would leave the band.

Another rhythm section would be recruited but not last long, eventually, Tracer would bring in drummer Jim Raleigh and bassist Gary Ryan. Thompson would also depart from the band leaving Carpenter the only guitarist in the group.

Tracer was now a solid line-up consisting of guitarist Kenny Carpenter, vocalist Tony Dant, Keyboardist Ron Prevost, bassist Gary Ryan and drummer Jim Raleigh. Before any further line-up changes might occur, the band quickly went into LSP Studios in Annapolis Maryland to begin recording their debut album.

Previously recorded tracks recorded at Wizard Works were also brought in to be reworked. That same year Tracer would release their DIY 11-track debut “Screamer in the Night”. Tracer would immediately start playing shows in support of their new release, meanwhile writing and recording for the band’s follow-up began.

Six new songs would be demoed but never completed and released. The following year bassist Gary Ryan would leave the band, being briefly replaced. Tony Dant would also decide to leave the band. After the departure of Dant Tracer officially decided to not continue. Tracer was a short-lived circuit band with a revolving door of members but they would manage to record some pretty catchy tunes and leave in their wake one full album.»
