Album Notes
The long-awaited release of the lost 1981 2nd album recordings from one of the most unique U.S. metal bands ever! After some 20 years the original demo masters, of what was to become the group's magnificent 2nd album "Dreams of Eschaton," have been unearthed and restored on this double vinyl and single compact disc release!! Included here are the massive 9+ minute epics "Mark of the Beast," "The Avatar," and "Triumvirate" among other all-time Manilla Road classics like "Time Trap" and "Venusian Sea." This release contains some of Mark Shelton's finest guitar and vocal work and bridges the gap between their 70s metal/rock roots and their 80s signature epic metal sound! Featuring artwork by legendary Thin Lizzy artist Jim Fitzpatrick.

- "THE BEST RECORD I HAVE HEARD IN A LONG TIME!!!! GREAT !!!! To me the best thing you have ever done and I can't imagine topping it but that is always the challenge" - John H. (OPM Records)

- "It's hard to believe that this lost treasure was never released previously, as this disc contains some of their strongest material. I was blown away listening to it, the melodies are superb and the progressive power of the tracks is amazing!" - Tom M. ( review)

- "It would be no delusion to say that this album stands with epics like "Rocka Rolla" & "Sad Wings Of Destiny" & now it can be experienced by anyone." - Ray D. (Chaos Realm)

john lory (from ITALY)

how can this man do it everytime? i mean, why mr. bergeron has the magic touch to release EVERYTIME a classic through his label? this was the supposed to be third album from seminal kansas epic merchants MANILLA ROAD, but for reason better known to themselves, it never came out. now it's been restored and released, and after more than 20 years we're able to listen a genial crossover of prog-flavoured 70's hard rock mixed with the growing flower of what later will become the u.s. wave of heavy metal! don't expect fake doom/stoner sound, this is original hard rock at its best with a melanchonic edge, wonderfully driven by the finest guitar ever played by mr. MARK SHELTON! definitely a must have, if you want to enter to tha gates of valhalla!
