High Roller Records - HRR482LP2

Manilla Road are a legend in their own right. The band that time forgot! Without the shadow of a doubt one of the most innovative American metal bands of all time. In the late 1970's, Manilla Road practically singlehandedly invented what is today called Epic Metal. Hailed as US Metal pioneers (their debut album Invasion was released on their own Roadster label in 1980), the band from Wichita (Kansas) has set the trend for the current renaissance of Epic Power Metal (despite being at best ignored and at worst derided by mainstream metal magazines around the globe for some 25 odd years). The band's second album Metal was once again issued via Roadster Records (seeing the light of day in 1982). In 1983 Manilla Road put out Crystal Logic considered to be their best album ever. This led to a deal with French label Black Dragon Records. However, not a lot of people know that in 1981 Manilla Road had recorded another album which was supposed to be following the release of Invasion . The long lost Manilla Road album called Dreams Of Eschaton , now issued in its original form by High Roller Records. The material has been carefully restored and remastered by Patrick W. Engel at his Temple Of Disharmony. "Unfortunately there has never been a really good master recording of this material that survived the years," explains Mark "The Shark" Shelton. "But there was a copy of the demo that was found that sounds amazingly like the original recording sounding to me as I remember it. With this newly found tape along with Patrick Engel's new mastering the quality has improved greatly from what was released as Mark Of The Beast on Monster Records back in 2002." According to Mark Shelton Dreams Of Eschaton , the lost Manilla Road album, is based on a loose concept: "It's about dreaming of the apocalypse, both, the real possible one and the religious Christian version as well. But it is pretty loose and some songs just don't even relate to the concept at all."
