Founded in the southern German city of Bietigheim-Bissingen by Heiko Maile, Oliver Kreyssig and Marcus Meyn in the year 1984, the band Camouflage scored an unexpected international hit with their debut album Voices & Images in 1988. One of the tracks in particular, The Great Commandment, went on to become a perennial classic of the synth pop genre.
Their sophomore album Methods Of Silence, released just a year later, was an even bigger success. The band produced the record in Brussels, working on the songs with Dan Lacksman (Telex). Love Is A Shield, the first single cut, has endured as a worldwide dancefloor anthem and is even a popular choice at weddings in South America.
To mark the 30th anniversary of the album, the band opened up the archives to assemble a special bonus edition including a wealth of rare and unreleased recordings, limited to 1.500 double CDs.
