Description

Get ready for a unique piece of hard rock / metal history. Hard rock / heavy metal way ahead of its time by the Bay Area pioneers BLIND ILLUSION. These are their very first recordings remastered from the original master tapes, featuring a total of 14 songs, written at a time when the band members were averaging 16 years of age! Songs like “Kamakazi”, “The Watcher”, “Rockers Unite” and “Death Noise” will send shivers down your spine. This band could and should have been really huge, but the problem was that they have always been way ahead of their time. Imagine that the songs and lyrics were written in 1979 and there are lyrics like the following: “Early pop has got to die, Progressive Metal is my reply!”. This must be the very first reference to “Progressive Metal” and this is coming from nearly 42 years ago! Crazy!
The Double Disc edition features amazing remastered sound, extensive liner notes, lyrics, huge thanks list and comes in a deluxe Slipcase packaging. Features the original iconic dot painting of Alvin Petty.
The CD reissue is limited to 500 copies. And it’s the first volume of a series of upcoming reissues featuring all the unreleased and demo songs BLIND ILLUSION ever did.

Release date: May 21st, 2021.
