As Surrealist, the revamped unit continued to refine their core style, entering Signature Sound Studios in Fond du Lac, WI from June to October of 1992 to record their lone outing, Playing God, consisting of 33 minutes of technical, progressive, thrash-leaning metal. Unfortunately, despite the obvious quality of the quintet's songwriting and musicianship, the band's continued struggles to gain label interest coupled with dwindling venues to support live performances led them to run out of steam prior to achieving the wider recognition they so deserved. Finally, three decades later, Divebomb Records is excited to shed new light on Surrealist and Playing God through an expanded CD reissue that also includes MASSAKIST's final demo, Of All That is Seen... and Unseen, as a bonus-totaling 14 tracks of high-quality output for fans of FATES WARNING, NEVERMORE, WATCHTOWER, etc. Fully remastered and restored by Jamie King Audio, the disc comes housed alongside a 20-page booklet filled with photos, flyers, ephemera, lyrics, and an extensive new interview with the band. For the fans, by the fans!
