Remix

When Play Dead released From the Promised Land in early May 1984, the band decided that the sound was too plain and remixed the entire album. Every new version of each song featured more electronics and re-recorded vocals by Rob Hickson. Also, certain drum beats were rearranged, an example is "Walk Away"'s faster-paced introduction. The most notable differences in these remixes when compared to the original versions are in "Walk Away" and "Weeping Blood." "Torn On Desire's" remix seems to have a more toned down guitar. The new versions of "Holy Holy," "No Motive," and "Weeping Blood" are longer than the originals. The new version of the album became the standard version at the time and had a sticker that read "remix" on the front cover. Rob Hickson - frontman of Play Dead Rob Hickson was the vocalist and frontman for British Gothic rock group Play Dead. ...


'From the Promised Land' was rereleased on CD on 18th June in the UK.
