Bring it back CD

Payback is one of the most well-known and established bands from Italy, based in Rome.
They exist since 2001 and since then they have managed to release 3 full lengths and tour Europe and The States.
'Bring It Back' was released a year or so ago by the infamous label Countdown Records (in collaboration with 3 more labels) that my old buddy Luca owns.
It includes all the songs from the early Payback material; that means 'Keep Your Friends Close' CD (2003, Valium | Brutus| El Paso), 'Don't Break The Bloodpact' CD (2005, SFL Records), plus 4 newly recorded songs, 'Timebomb', 'Bring It Back' that features Roger Miret from Agnostic Front, and 2 covers; 'Nothing', originally by Negative Approach and 'All Fucked Up', originally by Blood For Blood.
All the old songs are remastered and have a tight sound, much better that the original one.
The biggest surprise is the participation of Roger Miret. It's definitely an honor for an underground hardcore / punk band to have Mr. Miret as a guest vocalist in one of their songs. As far as I know it's one of the few times (or maybe the first?) he ever did guest vocals for a European band.
Moreover, there's the video clip of 'Kings Of Nothing', included in the multimedia part.
Besides that, the cover art is fucking amazing, done by Joe Simko (www.sweetrot.com), who have also done designs for Murphy's Law.
I forgot to tell you that Payback play fast NY influenced hardcore music with a lot of street punk references, for fans of Cro-Mags, Agnostic Front, Breakdown and Warzone.
22 songs + a video clip + great cover art + professional packaging.
