Very unique album for its time. No one was playing this type of metal back in '85.

Yeah, Watchtower paved the way for a whole bunch of great technical metal, too bad they didn't put out more stuff.

Actually there's a collection called Demonstrations in Chaos, with old demo/live tracks etc. released in 2002. They planned recording a new album, called Mathematics, but it seems it won't happen :(

"Watchtower are working on their new album which will be called ''Mathematics''. Ron and Rick had recorded most of their tracks but the rest is yet to be done, however the recording has stopped, due to ''family duties'' of the other band members; and so according to Ron, the chances of ever recording ''Mathematics'' are, at this point, very ''slim''."

Damn, that's a real shame about Mathematics, as I know from hearing his work with Spastic Ink that Ron Jarzombek can still deliver the goods. I'll have to take a look at Demonstrations in Chaos, though , as that sounds like it could be real fun…

I went to high school with Billy White briefly. He was more interested in his guitar than going to school so it was rare that we hung out and I doubt he would even remember me at this point.

At that time, many of us considered him to be the Randy Rhoads of Austin and this was before Watch Tower had even released a record yet so they were playing parties and stuff like that.

If I'm remembering correctly, Celtic Frost was interested in having him play guitar in their band at some point but years later he wound up playing in Dokken instead.
