Melodic Revolution Records is not your average record label, along with our own release we pride ourselves on helping others when we can. Blank Manuskript is just one of those bands.
The Salzburg-based band Blank Manuskript seems to be a musical chamber of wonder – internationally successful with uncompromisingly bizarre rock music, the ensemble gained a unique reputation. Their music is characterized by its sophisticated symphonic arrangements as well as extensive psychedelic improvisations, thus rocking our everyday listening habits. Blank Manuskript creates music paired with mystical-vivid lyrics to transfer its audience into flamboyant musical spheres that have a unique effect on the listeners. Socio-critical escapism unites with creative excellence, creating contemporary programmatic rock music for insiders and seekers, far beyond the inhuman banality of the media machine.

The Waiting Soldier / 2015
The Waiting Soldier is the 3 studio release by Blank Manuskript the seven (7) track album deals with the loss of identity and the formation of a fictitious working environment.
The debut album Tales from an Island – Impressions from Rapa Nui is an eight (*8) track album tells the story of the Pacific Easter Island. The history of this legendary island is transformed into a narrative that turns into a personal story of a participant of the Birdman-ritual and ends in a tragic love story. The album was recorded in Vienna and features many guest musicians, which were recruited to implement the desired soundscapes that make this album so very multifarious.
Mark Bryson has a stunning new self-released album coming out on September 28th called “Riot on Sunset” the album was produced by Gregg Olson, Allison VonBülow of Scarlet Hollow along with Mark Bryson. the album also features special guest appearances by both Gregg and Allison of Scarlet Hollow.
“I fell in love “Riot on Sunset” upon the very first spin and it has not left my CD player since I received it, so… yes, I highly recommended this album.”
This is the part I dislike but it needs to be said!
This could easily be the best unreleased Eagles album or a solo album by Schmit, Frey, Henley, Felder or Meisner. yea its that good!
