Metal Mind Productions is proud to announce the release of the new album by the Polish band Leash Eye.
 
Metal/Southern Rock band Leash Eye was founded by three friends, playing for their own enjoyment. As their musical goal, the band decided to follow the same road as the one chosen by Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Kyuss, Tool, Illusion, and Spiritual Beggars. In March 1999, the band recorded 5 songs, which were featured on their promo CD. The change of the lead singer in 2003 triggered also a change of their style - these days Leash Eye stands for melodious hard rock of the 70's, accompanied by heavy, modern sounds and classic vocals. In Autumn 2009, Leash Eye's debut album "V.E.N.I", featuring guest appearance of Riverside's Michał Łapaja on the Hammond organ, sees the light of day. The album met with the acclaim of both the critics and the listeners. The year 2010 is marked by intense work on new songs, which are to be included on the band's new full-length album. Ultimately, 10 out of 13 compositions are chosen and, in the beginning of 2011, the band enter Sound Division Studio in Warsaw to record their 2nd album "V.I.D.I.", with Behemoth's Orion as the producer and Vesania's Heinrich as sound engineer.
The year 2011 is, so far, definitely the most successful year in Leash Eye's career. They win Antyradio's competition and, as the result, their right to perform at Sonisphere Festival next to Motorhead and Iron Maiden. Also, they represent Poland at Wacken Open Air festival, where they perform as the winners of Polish edition of Wacken Metal Battle.
 
And still the best is yet to come. Their second full studio album “V.I.D.I.” will be released by Metal Mind Productions on the 16th of November in Europe and 10th of January 2012 in USA (via MVD).
 
 
The album features 10 tracks whose titles are associated with ‘road movies’. Fans of Tarantino and Rodriguez’s films will easily read the allusion of the front cover.
 
More info to follow soon!

Hey Bob, they're not in PA. This thread should go some place else not to a Progressive Music Lounge. Tongue

.. hence the reason this is not in the "prog news" section. (Metal Minds are an "official prog supplier", they have done much in recent years to keep the prog flag flying.)

yes, all announces from Metal Mind are either linked to AOR or thrash metal...
 
They may reissue some prog but their back catalogue is essentially rooted in METAL, hence the name of the label (lol).

They have released two dozen or so of live DVDs by prog bands, and cater for acts such as SBB and Believe. New material mind you, not reissues.

^

anytime I see an annoucement about a new release by metal mind in this section of PA, it's about the re-issue of albums by an AOR band or a metal band.
 
MMP (metal mind productions) started as a strictly metal label (and by metal, I mean essentially extreme metal, I remember buying tapes of Paradise Lost, Death, Sup, Nocturnus, Morbid Saint back distributed by MMP in early nineties in Poland), it seems that now they reach for a wider public by taking under their wings polish prog rock bands.
