EMISSARY appeared in the historical book Rusted Metal: A guide to Hard Rock and Heavy Metal in the Pacific Northwest 1970-1995.  In early 2021, Jym Harris and Tim Dahlen reunited with drummer Eric Hoover and bassist Peter Shawn Kinney. Guitarist Charlie Francipane was added to the lineup, and after 25 years apart, EMISSARY was back! In August of ‘21 they played their first show as direct support for veteran rockers Tesla in Grants Pass, Oregon.

In May 2022 the band released The Wretched Masquerade. The album is comprised mostly of new recordings of the band’s classic material, but a deluxe version will feature a bonus disc full of remastered 90’s demos. There is even a guest appearance by guitarist Claudeous Creamer of Bay Area legends Possessed on one track.

On the Guest DJ Show this Friday, vocalist Jym Harris of EMISSARY will play for you his favorite and/or inspirational music tracks. After his playlist, we’ll play a handful of tracks off their latest release, The Wretched Masquerade.

The Friday Guest DJ Hour Show airs at the following times:

15:00 and 21:00 Central Europe
9:00 am and 3:00 pm US East Coast
6:00 am and 12:00 pm US West Coast
