Please tell us a few words about the new release, about the music on it as a whole or a few words on each track in part. How are you happy with the final release?
"Subconscious Endeavor" includes five songs that were recorded in 1988 as a demo, but never released. The title track is a venture into the subconscious mind and how that affects dreams, specifically the course in which a dream takes on its own life. We are happy with the release, mainly in the aspect that the material never saw the light of day until last year.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
I would describe the music as a cross between Queensryche, Dokken and a hint of Iron Maiden. All related to those bands in that era of this recording.
Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? Any interesting stories from the recording/producing the material?
The material was recorded in Livermore California at a studio called Audio Voyage. It was recorded very quickly (I believe one day), with very few overdubs, mostly live.
What can you tell us about the cover artwork? Is there a link between the artwork and the lyrics? What are the topics of your lyrics?
The Artwork is very simple. The logo and title are almost reminiscent of the Arnold Shwarzenegger classic the Terminator. Each song has its own individual theme to its lyrics. "Subconscious Endeavor" is based on how our subconscious mind takes us on a ride in our dreams and they're possible meanings. "Marching On" is directly written about WWII, specifically on how Great Britain entered the war with Germany. AWOL is based on the Vietnam war told by my interpretation of what the men and women were feeling during and after the conflict.
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
We would like to see this release open up a door for the more current release "Passed Presence" due to be out this year. Our sloe aim is finishing the writing, recording and packaging of the new album before embarking on live shows to promote it.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
The release is solely a digital release available online at all major vendors. The new release will be a physical copy, as well as digital (possibly with a limited vinyl pressing).
Where and how will you promote this new release?
Promotion is solely being handled by Online Metal Promo. We will continue that relationship for the upcoming release.
Where can we order it from?
"Subconscious Endeavor" is available wherever you can buy digital music online
