THRESHOLD: More 'The Ravages Of Time' Details Revealed

September 18, 2007

UK progressive metallers THRESHOLD have confirmed they will release their first-ever "best-of" collection in November, featuring over 140 minutes of music from all their studio albums plus three previously unreleased single versions. Entitled "The Ravages of Time (The Best of Threshold)", the two-disc set will be issued by the band's previous label Inside Out Music on November 20 in the U.S. (one day earlier internationally). The track listing was selected by the band in conjunction with the label. "The decision to include the unreleased single edits was because we know there are a lot of fans who are frustrated when there are edits made but not available on CD," commented keyboardist Richard West. "Of course there wasn't room for everything but between us we thought it was a good overall list." The album will include unreleased radio edits of material from their latest album "Dead Reckoning" released on Nuclear Blast. The artwork for the collection was designed by Thomas Ewerhard, who was responsible for many of THRESHOLD's previous album covers, including the iconic "Hypothetical" and "Subsurface". The new cover was originally created for the band's previous album when it had the working title of "Pilot in the Sky of Dreams". The 24-page booklet will include a new biography written by Trevor Raggatt.
