Led by guitarist/vocalist Joe Stumer, LEVIATHEN took shape in Bath, PA circa 1986. By the time of their 1993 return to Skylab Studios in Princeton, NJ, Stumer and drummer/vocalist Jim Vacca had been joined by Chris Dinan on bass/backing vocals. The end result was the band's lone self-released full-length, Onward Thru the Fog, featuring nine tracks across 48 minutes.

Onward Thru the Fog proved that through the time and effort spent on crisp production and memorable songwriting—along with their multi-vocal approach—LEVIATHEN had truly cemented their own sound: a unique and inventive brand of mixed-bag thrash metal that was as creatively melodic as it was rhythmically crunchy. The material was so strong, in fact, that the trio started to gain the attention of major labels. Unfortunately, the labels all wanted to mold the band into a more melodic and one-sided approach—a mold that LEVIATHEN steadfastly refused in favor of remaining true to their artistic vision.

Not once reissued over the past three decades, original copies of Onward Thru the Fog are tough to come by, giving collectors no choice but to pay steep prices. Therefore, Divebomb Records is thrilled to finally shed new light on this exceptional thrash metal obscurity. Newly remastered by Jamie King Audio, this CD reissue will also include a bonus track recorded live on WSOU radio in New Jersey; not to mention a 20-page booklet filled with lyrics, photos, and the second installment of a three-part interview with Joe Stumer. For the fans, by the fans!
