Pukkila comments: "After a few years of studio absence, we are finally here with our debut album entitled 'Reality Unveiled'. Feels great to announce the deal with Pride & Joy Music! The music is melodic, but also in-your-face and kick-ass rock. Cool riffs, good melodies and tasteful arrangements. I'm very happy with how the album came out. It's a great collection of hard-hitting-yet-melodic commercial rock tracks, which I hope you all enjoy.”
“Reality Unveiled” was produced by SHADOW TRIBE between 2018 and 2020; and mixed and mastered by singer Kimmo Perämäki who also mixed and mastered the latest Stargazery album and created the SHADOW TRIBE artwork.
