In 2003 Severe Illusion released the album “Discipline Is Reward Enough”. 13 years later that album now sees a re-release, this time as a double-cd set.
Apart from the extra bonus tracks on CD 1 (“Human Rites 2016”, “Massive Democratic Maintainance”, “High (alternative version)” and “Friendly (featuring Seventh Harmonic, live in Antwerpen)”) the 2nd disc holds 12 extra tracks consisting of old demos dating back to the band’s first jamming sessions in Göteborg, live recordings and collaborations with the bands Seventh Harmonic (CD1) and Tecnoman SF (CD2).
You can order your copy here. Severe Illusion was founded in 2000 by Fredrik Djurfeldt and Ulf Lundblad. The band’s first output was the excellent debut “Discipline is Reward Enough” on PAF Records.

Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
