DAMASCUS COLD HORIZON Limited Transparent Green Vinyl LP

With their one and only, self-published 12" EP from 1984, Damascus carved their name into heavy metal history. Whereas in a lot of cases the "importance" of a band gets blown out of all proportion because of the rarity of the vinyl, this is not true regarding New Wave Of British Heavy Metal legend Damascus. The four songs on their "Open Your Eyes" 12" are just so good musically that it is hard to overlook the sheer quality of this rather obscure outfit from the Merseyside area. In addition to the four tracks from the original vinyl ("Open Your Eyes", "Something on My Mind", "Cold Horizon" and "Midnight Train") the High Roller release will include five totally unreleased tracks (namely “Looking for Daylight”, “Another Rainy Day”, “Goodbye Harry”, “Dreamer” and 'Women in Black”). All songs were recorded at Livepool's Amazon Studios in 1984. If the 9-track “Cold Horizon” album had been released to the general public in 1984, I am pretty sure it would have received a lot of attention. Not only is the songwriting extraordinary, the production is outstanding as well. Unfortunately, however, not many Merseyside metal bands made it big in the 1980's (maybe apart from Spider who snatched up a couple of prestigious support slots for well-known bands). Damascus bassist Mike Booth explains why: "I'd say the rock scene was low key in the 1980's. The main Liverpool scene was involved with the post-punk bands like Teardrop Explodes, Echo And The Bunnymen, OMD and loads of others. Bands like Damascus weren't commercial at that time." So now it's your chance to witness a piece of New Wave Of British Heavy Metal history!
