'Back From Hell', was recorded at Millbrook Studio's in New York state with Paul Orofino producing and is available in limited quantities from Neal`s site.

"An early report from the FrightVision show in Cleveland(April 2001).

EyeScream played tonight and did 5 songs from their new CD (Dennis said they tried to have it done for the show, but the mastering isn't complete. They did play a rough copy at their table.) The songs in order were 'Having the Time Of Our Live', 'I Want You', 'Carnival Toy', 'Bad Girl' (Blue Turk style bass line) and the killer new song 'Vampire Night' (this one should get some airplay!) 'Vampire Night' features lyrics by Dennis, and they said this one was done after the initial songs, when they realized they still had studio time. Anyway, after those songs came 'Don`t Fear The Reaper', then a guitar solo by Ingo, who joined EyeScream on stage. "
"They then played 'Under My Wheels', 'Be My Lover', '18' with a harmonica player, and encore of 'School`s Out'. There was a good crowd on hand. Dennis played the green "Frog" bass, which is going on loan to the Rock Hall of Fame after tonight's show. Michael Bruce was also with the guys at the convention, but did not play at the show."
(Mark Brown, April 2001)

"I thought I would give a few more details on the Smith/Dunaway/Bouchard/Bruce appearance at FrightVision in Cleveland. The guys were set up at a table in one of the main rooms, which also had other horror movie and music stuff for sale. Neal had with him many of his mouse pads and T-shirts for sale and CD's, Dennis had photos for sale, Joe Bouchard had CD's for sale, and Michael had CD's and books for sale. I spent a lot of time talking to Neal and Dennis, especially Dennis. He let many people, including myself, actually hold and play the famous green "Frog" bass, the one with all of the mirrors and glitter glued on. He is loaning it for display to the Rock Hall of Fame, as I mentioned, and this weekend is the last time he will use it before display. I asked about the EyeScream project, and Dennis said they had hoped to have it done to sell at the convention, but it was still being mastered. As I mentioned in my review of their set, Dennis said they were done with the batch of songs they had intended for the CD. They then realized they had studio time left, so they decided to write more songs. Joe Bouchard suggested a riff they had been working on, and Dennis said he didn't remember it, but Neal had a cassette he had made of their rehearsal. This is the song that became "VAMPIRE NIGHT", which was my favorite song of the set last night. Dennis wrote the lyrics and Joe Bouchard wrote the melody. They also played the rough copy of the CD at their table, but I only caught bits and pieces in between the conversation. At one point, a local TV host, the legendary Ghoul stopped by. He has an assistant wearing a frog head, so of course the "Frog" bass was strapped on and photos and video made. I will try to catch it on local TV."
