Double album on black vinyls with gatefold cover and insert

Get ready for a unique piece of hard rock / metal history. Hard rock and heavy metal way ahead of its time by the Bay Area pioneers Blind Illusion. Most of you are familiar with this band thanks to their Under One Flag debut album, The Sane Asylum. That thrash metal opus was released in 1987 but the bands history goes way back. The Likewise Sessions The Ultimate Anthology Vol.1 album features the very first recordings remastered from the original master tapes, featuring a total of 14 songs, written at a time when the band members were averaging 16 years of age. Songs like Kamakazi, The Watcher, Rockers Unite and Death Noise will send shivers down your spine. This band could and should have been really huge, but the problem was that they have always been way ahead of their time. Imagine that the songs and lyrics were written in 1979 and there are lyrics like the following: Early pop has got to die, Progressive Metal is my reply. This must be the very first reference to Progressive Metal and this is coming from nearly 42 years ago. Crazy! This is the first volume of a series of upcoming reissues featuring all the unreleased and demo songs Blind Illusion ever did.
