Kommt im Vinyl-Format. Müsste man eine deutsche Band als Urgesteine der zweiten Thrash-Welle im Sog der Pioniere der 1980er nennen, wären es allen voran Repent. Wer 1992 zusammenfand, um diese Form von Metal zu spielen, als sie nicht mehr im Trend lag, konnte nur zu jener Sorte von Überzeugungstätern gehören, die ihren Kurs ungeachtet flüchtiger Strömungen kompromisslos beibehalten. Schließlich haben stilprägende Thrasher von Beginn an Aggression mit Tiefgang geboten - und deren Fackel tragen die Süddeutschen 2019 besonders hell lodernd weiter !

A deaf aristocrat fights to protect all he loves from a killer he cannot hear Moments before the wedding, Christopher Sterry finds the groom, his twin brother, murdered. One would expect Christopher to become the next Earl of Longford. No one would be surprised if he married his twin´s almost-bride, Helen Grove. She is, after all, his closest friend and confidante. Except Christopher is deaf in an inflexible world that believes a deaf mute is no better than a barbaric half-wit, unfit to be an earl and quite capable of murdering his brother. Helen waits at the altar while her groom lies murdered in the folly. But there is no time to mourn. Christopher is in danger and so, it appears, is she. Born to marry the earl of Longford, whoever that may be, Helen ignores her own risks and crosses into the line of fire to protect the man who holds her heart. Lady Eleanor solves crimes more thoroughly than any male magistrate. So when Christopher, her godson, is condemned without evidence, she sets out to prove both his innocence and his competence as earl. If she fails, Christopher will die...or be returned to an asylum worse than hell. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mary Sarah Agliotta.

Condemned even more by himself than by his fellow men, Jim leaves the world and seeks his redemption in the remote forests of Patusan. It is there he finds fame, love, and success. It is there also that he faces the final and biggest test of his courage and faith, and comes through it in tragic triumph.

Sarah Poyntz is the daughter of an English merchant who operates a shipping business from Antwerp, Belgium, in 1535. Her father is very interested in the ideas of William Tyndale, who has fled England as a condemned outlaw for refusing to stop his translation work of the English Bible. Tyndale believes that the word of God should be read by the common people in their own language, a belief shared by the Poyntz family. But when Tyndale is captured and imprisoned, Sarah becomes the only hope for saving his life. If she can successfully smuggle a copy of Tyndale’s New Testament into the hands of the king’s wife, Queen Anne, perhaps she can persuade him to spare Tyndale’s life. If Sarah’s desperate mission fails, her family is in peril of their lives. Will she have the courage to go through with it? Can Tyndale’s life be spared? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Hodges.
