Bio:

Manilla Road is an American heavy metal band from Wichita, Kansas, founded by lead guitarist Mark 'the Shark' Shelton (vocals and guitar) (born December 3, 1957, Wichita, Kansas, United States).Manilla Road was created by Shelton in 1977 with high school friends Benny Munkirs, Rick Fisher and brothers Robert and Scott Park.After playing in local bars, the group first gained attention with their song "Herman Hill," inspired by the Herman Hill riot. Their first album Invasion was released in 1980 on the band's own label, Roadster Records. Between this time and their next release the band recorded material for an album to be titled The Dreams Of Eschaton,however this was not released until 2002 (under the name Mark of the Beast) as they were not happy with the sound. Shelton has been quoted as saying the music was "not metal enough" and "sounded like shit." Despite this Mark of the Beast was critically well received when it was eventually released. These early albums have more in common with progressive rock and proto-heavy metal than the band's later heavier speed/thrash metal sound.The next record was Metal, which began to define the future musical direction of Manilla Road. Their "classic" sound was solidified with the release of Crystal Logic in 1983.Manilla Road reformed and released Atlantis Rising in 2001, again with Mark Shelton as the only original member. On this occasion, however, the sound was much more consistent with the Manilla Road of old and it was the band who decided to continue using the name. Their latest albums were Spiral Castle, released in 2002, Gates Of Fire in 2005, and Voyager in 2008. A European tour took place in 2012.In 2007, Manilla Road was honored by Solemnity Music in Germany with the release of The Riddle Masters: A Tribute to Manilla Road. This double-disc release contains songs from 18 bands from all over the world playing their versions of Manilla Road classics.The son of the original rhythm guitarist, Robert Park, started an alternative rock band in 2002, The Canadian Lawyers. The Canadian Lawyers' rhythm guitarist is also Scott Park's nephew.Norwegian Heavy metal band Darkthrone mentioned the band in the song "Raised on Rock" on the 2007 album, F.O.A.D.In 1998, the Greek edition of Metal Hammer magazine released an unofficial compilation entitled, Live by the Sword - The Very Best of Manilla Road. However, this was compiled without the band's involvement or consent, and is therefore considered to be a bootleg recording.

Album:

Manilla Road‘s unreleased “Mark of the Beast” album, recorded between Invasion and Metal, has been pressed to CD and LP by High Roller Records as Dreams of Eschaton.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 single-handedly 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. 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. The big question is why Manilla Road decided to record »Metal« and shelving the whole »Dreams Of Eschaton« project back in 1981? “We just did not feel the recording represented the true sound of the band at the time,” remarks Mark “The Shark” Shelton. “The studio we were recording in felt that inline recording technology was the way to go with us and so »Invasion« and »Dreams Of Eschaton« were recorded using analog guitar processors more than amplifiers and speaker cabinets. The same approach was used in the »Dreams Of Eschaton« recording and when it was all said and done I did not feel like the sound of the songs or the recording represented what the music sounded like live. So we put that project to bed so to speak and started working on new recordings using amps and speakers with the volume jacked up like we did it at live shows. That is how the songs 'Aftershock', 'Time Trap' and 'Venusian Sea' were recorded. We never actually made it to the stage of thinking out a cover concept because of deciding not to release the album. So I can't say what the cover art would have looked like if we had gone ahead and released it back then.” According to Mark Shelton »Dreams Of Eschaton« 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.”“Unfortunately there has never been a really good master recording of this material that survived the years,” explains Mark. “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.” Surprisingly, most of the songs of the shelved »Dreams Of Eschaton« album were indeed played live back in the days: “We played most of the songs live for about a year or two and then they sort of drifted off the live set list. We did play 'Avatar' in France once when the line-up was Vince Golman on bass and Cory Christner on drums with Bryan singing it. There is a youtube video of this on our Manilla Road youtube page if you care to check it out.” So what would Mark say, does he consider »Dreams Of Eschaton« to be a full Manilla Road album, which just did not make it to be officially released in 1981, or is it rather an experiment/a collection of demos in his eyes? “I would consider it to be a bit of both,” is his straight answer. “It was a full album which was originally going to be called »Dreams Of Eschaton« and with the other songs added, which were actually recorded as demo songs, then it becomes sort of that collection that you speak of as well.“
