The Innocent, The Forsaken, The Guilty = 2 CD / DVD = (CD)
Mezmerist is one of the most mysterious US Metal releases of all time. Nobody even knows who The Mezmerist is, and to even find an original LP was a chore because the band held on to a lot of the pressing. Originally there were only 500 copies made back in 1985, today those copies have gone for extremely high prices on eBay. With this re-issue, this is basically the first time anyone who knew about this lost gem made contact with the band. We got lucky finding the mastermind behind the band, Thomas Mezmercardo. Since finding him, we ended up taking an additional 5 years to put this release out properly and with all of the parties and work involved. Speaking of all parties involved, one of the most interesting things about this release is that Bill Ward did in fact play drums on this release. He played on the first 4 tracks on the 1st EP. The circumstances surrounding the events back then are somewhat of a mystery, even to this day. Thomas sits down and tells the story of how all of this came together on the DVD portion of the release. We can tell you for sure this is not just any old over-hyped cult release that some of these other labels are feeding you. This is the definition of the perfect lost gem in 80s heavy metal history and by far one of the best 80s heavy metal albums youll ever hear. Its too hard to exactly pinpoint what this sounds like, but if I have to label it, it would be Psychedelic Heavy Metal. If youre into Led Zeppelin, Cirith Ungol, and Mercyful Fate, youd get pretty close to their sound. The release is a double EP released as a full-length album for your enjoyment. Feature Bill Ward of Black Sabbath on drums on the first 4 tracks.
