Toledo's Blue Skies Burning were around from 1999-2002 and played an incredibly powerful brand of emotional hardcore. Borrowing as much from early 90's emo giants like Current and Anasarca as from as late 90's metal core gods like Zao, their sound fell somewhere in the territory of bands like As Friends Rust, Boysetsfire, Grade, etc. They were a criminally overlooked band and Dropping Bombs Recordings is ecstatic to be bringing these songs back to life on vinyl.
"In Totality" features both the original 4 song demo which was recorded by Tim Pak (Thoughts of Ionesco, Fordirelifesake, Hamilton, etc.) as well as the "Last Leg of My First Race" e.p. which was originally released on CD by One Day Savior Records and was recorded by Brian McTernan (Converge, 108, Bane, Thrice, etc.).
The tracks have been re-mastered by J.C. Griffin at Lake Bottom Recording House in Toledo and sound absolutely perfect.
This re-issue will be limited to 200 copies (100 on white, 100 on blue).
