Five years after 'Footprints In The Rock', NWOBHM unsung heroes TRESPASS are back with
a superb new album entitled 'Wolf At The Door'. Encompassing issues and subjects close to
their hearts - especially environmental themes - the album were written by founding
member, guitar player and vocalist Mark Sutcliffe at his home studio, being later recorded at
Crooks Hall Studios, all in the wilds of Suffolk. Nigel Palmer (Raging Speedhorn, Satan’s
Empire) then polished altogether in Lowland Masters.
This typical British environment helped Trespass maintain their NWOBHM signature twinguitar sound, while having a drive and energy in the rhythm section that transports them
right back into the 20s. The artwork, by Mark Wilkinson (Iron Maiden, Judas Priest) put the
final touch in a release that won’t disappoint the old-school fans, as well as new ones.
Trespass was formed in 1979 in Sudbury, Suffolk by Mark Sutcliffe (guitar, vocals) and his
brother Paul on drums. The band enjoyed success and critical acclaim as part of the New
wave of British Heavy Metal in the early 80s, although it has only released a few singles and
an EP - the cult 'Bright Lights', from 1981. Songs such as 'One Of These Days', 'Stormchild'
and 'Bright Lights' have made their mark.
