DEELER - In Distant Mirrors DCD (23 Songs/145'mins)
Limited Edition 500 Handnumbered DCDs (Arkeyn Steel Records)
It is time for this Prog Metal jewel to face daylight. Deeler from St. Louis, Missouri USA.
Amazing Prog/Power Metal with a serious, Epic touch. Deeler actually follow the mystical vibe of early Fates Warning, Gargoyle, Mystic Force and Longings Past. Complex yet magnificent riffing, heavenly vocal melodies and fantastic lead guitar parts, all this combined with first class songwriting.
Their two LP tapes from 89 and 94 for the first time on a double CD, remastered from scratch with bonus tracks.
Their debut LP tape "Deeler" was released back in 1989 only in 700 copies. “Awakening In Me”, the second LP tape followed five years later (1994) and only 600 copies were made. The extensive talent, the brilliant ideas and the band's very special vibe are captured through the music of both releases that were completely sold out and actually disappeared. Until now...
Arkeyn Steel Records presents the complete Deeler catalogue on a double-CD limited to 500 copies, including not only the original releases remastered from scratch but lots of unreleased material as bonus. 20-pages glossy booklet is also included featuring tons of unreleased photos, complete bio and lyrics. A great package that finally does justice to this amazing band!
This is epic, magical Prog/Power Steel. Get ready to face.... the Deeler.
