CITA – Heat Of Emotion + Relapse Of Reason [Remastered 2CD Digipak +8] (2018)
With the recent return of Guild Of Ages and their very good comeback album ‘Rise’, the band signed a deal as well for the reissue / remaster of their 2 first albums, when operated under the name “Caught In The Act” or simply “CITA“. Both albums, “Relapse Of Reason” and “Heat Of Emotion” are cult melodic hard rock records, for years impossible to get CD’s.
Now have been reissued, remastered, with 8 bonus tracks, into a 2CD Digipak titled “Heat Of Emotion + Relapse Of Reason“.
Forged from what was left of the hairspray and decadence of the ’80s American hard rock scene, four high school friends were hell-bent on carving their name in the annals of rock n’ roll.
Their roots extend back to 1989 when the band was named “Caught In The Act”. These four were Danny Martinez, Anthony Trujillo, Joe Marone and Troy Benson.
Through hard work and determination they became one of the most popular bands on the Denver rock scene.
Despite being caught up in the grunge movement the band pressed on and were noticed by Bobby Barth of the band AXE, who agreed to produce their debut CD. Eventually a deal was struck with a Swedish label and the first release “Relapse Of Reason” hit the streets in 1995.
The result was explosive and put the band on the map.
Soon after, the follow up “Heat Of Emotion” was released in Germany to critical acclaim. As success grew, then a boy-band with the same name sued the guys and so they changed their name to a more catchy “CITA”. By this time Marone and Benson had left and were replaced by James Lostetter and Steve Stuntz.
CITA eventually became Guild Of Ages, but under this name they had already made their mark with these two classic sounding melodic hard rock albums, elaborated in style with really original arrangements.
