Formed in the South of England in the late 1980s, THRESHOLD combined the influences of heavy metal and progressive rock to craft their own unique sound which was a far cry from the commercial sound of the time. With a line-up of Damian Wilson (vocals), Karl Groom (guitar), Nick Midson (guitar), Jon Jeary (bass), Richard West (keyboards) and Tony Grinham (drums), THRESHOLD released their highly acclaimed debut album “Wounded Land” in 1993. The following five years saw the release of the albums “Psychedelicatessen” (1994), “Extinct Instinct” (1997) and “Clone” (1998), and tours with bands such as DREAM THEATER, PSYCHOTIC WALTZ and PAIN OF SALVATION. In 1998 Andrew "Mac" McDermott became the band's third vocalist, following stints by Damian Wilson, Glynn Morgan and Damian Wilson for a second time. Later on, THRESHOLD released the records “Hypothetical” (2001), “Critical Mass” (2002) and “Subsurface” (2004), bringing long-awaited chart success for the band. In 2002 founding member Jon Jeary left the band shortly, to be followed in 2006 by fellow founder Nick Midson. THRESHOLD signed a deal with Nuclear Blast Records to release their eighth studio long player “Dead Reckoning” in 2007. Shortly after the release of the album, original vocalist Damian Wilson returned once again for the band's longest run of shows, with two European headline tours and numerous festival appearances, replacing former vocalist Mac, who sadly passed away on the 3rd of August 2011.
Over the course of the release of THRESHOLD’s overwhelmingly acclaimed new album “March Of Progress” on the 24th of August 2012, the decision was made to re-release the band’s seven albums of their pre-Nuclear Blast era, enriched with extensive bonus material. Revive THRESHOLD’s past and discover the timeless classics that earned them their legendary reputation through the “Definitive Editions”!
