Zusammen mit Bandmastermind Toby Knapp und den verbliebenen Bandmitgliedern möchten wir damit Michael Grant ein kleines Denkmal setzen – REST IN PEACE – MICHAEL! Wir werden dich nicht vergessen.
Toby Knapp meint dazu:
"Over a year ago I approached Pure Steel Records about releasing Onward's demo "The Neverending Sun" on vinyl. Pure Steel had a much better idea; releasing Onward's first two albums "Evermoving" and "Reawaken" in limited edition gatefold vinyl, remastered and with completely new artwork. After negotiations began Onward vocalist Michael Grant passed away making these plans take on a more serious level of importance. After a decade since disbanding these re-issues represent the eternal life of music, of Heavy Metal carefully crafted with integrity and the magic of collaboration between those who believe. Many fans who have since discovered Onward's music say "what happened?where did they go? they were so under-rated". Our collaboration with Pure Steel records on the re-release of what many consider "landmark" Heavy Metal albums is proof positive of what Onward conveyed during our years together; "Evermoving Onward!" onto vinyl sounding better than ever - Toby Knapp (guitarist/founding member)
