BAND SHELTON CHASTAIN
ALBUM THE EDGE OF SANITY - 88 DEMO SESSION
LABEL PURE STEEL RECORDS
OUT 2018 - Oct 26th
OUR RATING 80/100
In search of bonus material for future Manilla Road rereleases, bassist Phil Ross listened to various tapes that he found in Mark Shelton's home.
In addition to some exciting live material, he discovered demo recordings that David T. Chastain and Mark began in 1988.
When the US distribution of Black Dragon Records from Paris got into trouble in the late eighties, David signed Manilla Road on his label Leviathan Records.
The result was "Out Of The Abyss" (1988), which now was available in the US.
On the solo album by Chastain singer Leather "Shock Waves" the title song was written by Mark, in 1999 the song "The Edge Of Sanity" (included here as a demo version) appeared on the CD "Symphonica Millenia" by Chastain's group Zanister.
Infortunately these three songs remained in the demo stage and now they're existing only with drum machine.
