Rising Force is a Yngwie J. Malmsteen project as well as his debut solo album released in 1984. It is also the title of a song on Malmsteen's album Odyssey. Rising Force is credited as the beginning of Malmsteen's significant development of Neo-Classical metal in the 1980s.
Yngwie Johann Malmsteen (pronounced ING-vay MAALM-steen in English) (born Lars Johan Yngve Lannerbäck on June 30, 1963) is a Swedish guitarist, composer, multi-instrumentalist and bandleader. Malmsteen became notable in the mid-1980s for his technical fluency and neo-classical metal compositions, often incorporating high speed picking with harmonic minor scales, diminished scales and sweep picked arpeggios. Four of his albums, from 1984 to 1988, Rising Force, Marching Out, Trilogy, and Odyssey, ranked in the top 100 for sales.

Notes on this release:
New vinyltransfer using the original first West German Polydor/Phonogram pressing.
This release is the best sounding version I’ve ever owned. I also have owned the US first pressing (too wobbly and too noisy) and have at least three different CD-pressings of which the first German pressing is the best sounding in my opinion. Oddly enough it is the (old) Japanese pressings that completely suck audibly. There where the original sounds a tad too bright, specially on the opener, the Japanese did sound pretty muddy and were lacking any brightness mostly. I’m quite sure that the way you’ll hear it in this version is how Yngwie has intended it to sound back in the day. I’ve sold the US vinyl some years ago due to bankrupty and although I wasn’t fond of it’s vinyl quality the cover art was the best of all versions (as pictured "alternate cover").
Because of the use of high quality vinyl and high standards in quality control procedures vinylpressing from the Phonogram group of companies in the 1980s were top-notch. The only point of criteria could be that the vinyls could have been a tad thicker. Because of this they were prone to static load. But if you knew how to deal with that there was no problem with that.
Quality of record is simply pristine. It has been barely played before this rip because when I bought my albums back in the day I usually made a copy to a Nakamichi tapedeck (truly miss that beast some days!) and played that.
My transfers are straight rips and I never use any EQ - NR - or level changes on my rips - unless otherwise noted –
This has been a request from Mallwalker - Hope it was worth the wait for you!

* ClickRepair was not used on this transfer – manually declicked)
SoX SRC plugin for Sample Rate Conversion was also not used on this transfer
Up until this transfer (september 2009) I was manually declicking and used iTunes 7's native SRC. Just a short time after I found out SoX does a much better job. Maybe one day I'll do a rerip, although this one sounds pretty darn great already.
