Borealis recorded the album ‘Sons of the Sea’ at MUN Radio in St’ John’s, Newfoundland. It was the first rock album to be recorded in the Atlantic Provinces and the first all-original material by any Newfoundland group. There were likely only 500 copies of this album pressed.
The album features some great keyboards and great guitar riffs throughout, with hints of fuzz guitar, psych and garage – all in all an outstanding listen start to finish.
Thanks went out to “Mighty Mouth Mac Bareftoot, Doc Feeney (recording genius par excellence), Memorial University Security Guards, Len White, Nelson Squires (and his dark room). Tony Kent (yet another Newfie genius).
The album “Sons of the Sea’ was re-issued on Void Records VOID 23 on blue marble wax in 2001 and again on CD on Beatball Merry-Go-Round Records BMRC 0004.
