The following message was posted in part on Frontiers Music Srl‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“For many years, there has been a growing demand for reissues of Pretty Maids‘ albums from the ’90s and onwards. A lot of these albums haven’t been accessible for years on either CD, vinyl, or digitally, so Frontiers is thrilled to roll out these catalog reissues for Pretty Maids fans, both old and new.
For North American fans, the ONLY place you can get this limited edition box set in N.A. is at our PledgeMusic store and it is limited to 50 copies. Vinyl reissues available there too. https://frontiersrecords.pmstores.co/

The ’90s and the beginning of the new millennium were pretty hard times for traditional melodic hard rock and metal. Many new sub-genres dominated the rock world, the scene changed more or less constantly, and new trends came and went, leaving melodic hard rock a bit adrift. But, the genre was always there, still is, and always will be thanks to probably the most loyal and faithful supporters you’ll ever find in the music business.
Pretty Maids has always taken great pride in delivering the best possible music at any given time, regardless of trends, and it is with great pleasure we now can reissue these albums.
Enjoy the music whether it be for the first time or again for the first time in a little while!”
