Shadow Kingdom Records is proud to unearth some completely obscure and virtually unknown 80’s Italian Doom Metal from RUN AFTER TO.
A split release entitled Run After To/Gjinn and Djinn that includes the band’s lone 1988 self-titled EP and the 1985 Gjinn and Djinn demo will be introduced to the world on January 7th. The songs have been remastered and the CD package contains some amazing band photos and a complete biography.
With the strange name came some strange songs as well. These old dusty recordings are literally impossible to find except for a low quality upload on YouTube. Fans of old 80’s Doom Metal like PAUL CHAIN VIOLET THEATRE, BLACK HOLE, and DEATH SS will absolutely love this package. Those not as familiar with Italian Doom Metal will have their interest piqued by comparisons to the likes of BLACK SABBATH, SAINT VITUS, CANDLEMASS and TROUBLE. RUN AFTER TO is one of those bands who has gone criminally unnoticed thanks to a career cut too short.
Finally, there was some confusion about the history of the song “Occultism,” which is a RUN AFTER TO original. Paul Chain heard the song, loved it, re-recorded it, and made his own version of it.
