    For the first time on VINYL (original release was only available on CD in 1992) -Remaster 2024, mastered for vinyl -the most popular of Non-Fiction's three albums -printed insert with liner notes and many illustrations -with Alan Tecchio (Hades, Watchtower) and Dan Lorenzo (Hades, Patriarchs In Black) -The voice of Hades & Watchtower meets doomy US metal with a 70s groove During a European tour by HADES, it became apparent that the band would soon disband. Guitarist Dan Lorenzo formed Non-Fiction with Dan Nastasi (MUCKY PUP, DOG EAT DOG), who subsequently recorded an EP. However, the line-up carousel was to turn again and HADES and WATCHTOWER singer Alan Tecchio and bassist Kevin Bolembach (later SEVEN WITCHES, JACK FROST, among others) came on board. In 1991 the debut "Preface" was released on Grand Slamm Records, in Europe on Steamhammer/SPV. At the time, many fans of HADES and WATCHTOWER must have been surprised by the doom metal direction, while fans of this style remained unaware of it without the Internet. It is astonishing that certain trademarks of HADES can still be found in the music of NON-FICTION (see also the 1995 reunion album of HADES). In 1992, the second album "In The Know" was released, which is considered a fan favorite and was only released on CD at the time. Once again, the cover artwork is reminiscent of the art of Hipgnosis (Pink Floyd, UFO etc.). Many fans have been waiting for an LP version, now it is finally available 32 years later. After the release, Non-Fiction successfully toured with Savatage and Overkill, where they were also seen in Europe. Both HADES and WATCHTOWER (with Alan Tecchio) are -sporadically- active again today and quite a few fans hope that Non-Fiction will also make another appearance. The musical continuation, albeit a little more modern, is currently Dan Lorenzo's band PATRIARCHS IN BLACK, which is successful in the USA.
