Recorded between 2018 and 2019 at the Banana Ranch in Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania, the previously released quartet of digital EPs from Mind Power have been consolidated into a single vinyl pressing by Jump Start Records and rebranded “Self Torture“. That is available to order here with the band releasing a music video for “Mess” created by Sean Cranston.
“Featuring vocals from ex-A Life Once Lost frontman Robert Meadows and a lineup that includes former members of Ligeia, Dead End Path, and Bring the Heat, “Self Torture” features guest appearances from notable metal standouts like Norma Jean’s Cory Brandan, Darkest Hour’s John Henry and Michael Schleibaum, The Red Chord’s Mike McKenzie, and Most Precious Blood’s Rob Fusco just to name a few. Originally released as quarterly digital only releases by the band, the 11 tracks off of “Self Torture” read like a book that’s woven from those releases with a cathartic, brutally honest, and at times self deprecating voice. Remastered by heavy music heavyweight Alan Douches, Mind Power’s first physical release is as heavy and earnest as the vinyl is beautiful“
