Annabel Lee was a four-piece indie/emo band that existed from 2000-2003 in Winona Lake, a small but wealthy lake community in Northern Indiana with religious historical significance and a respected theological seminary. Despite this permeation of spiritual overabundance, Annabel Lee arose as a distinct voice of rebellious intent which questioned the traditional values surrounding them. Although formed from the ashes of countless local hardcore, metal, and punk bands, the early works of Annabel Lee presented a more reserved, emotional introspection into relationships, philosophy, and other topics of personal value. With maturation, their sound formed into a potent blend of intricate guitar interplay, sharp lyricism, and a barrage of half spoken, half screamed vocals from nearly every member. In addition to influencing countless local bands from numerous generations both during & after their existence, the members of Annabel Lee have continued their individual musical journeys.
I Saw It All Unfold is the complete recordings of Annabel Lee, compiled for the first time in over 10 years as a 12″ + 7″ + DVDr + ZINE set, featuring their entire recorded output as well as rare photographs, over 2 hours of video footage from performances, scans of the original albums, flyers, and more. It’s one of the most grandiose releases we’ve constructed thus far, and we couldn’t have done it without the collaboration of our good friends in local Bloomington label Crossroads of America Records, with whom this release is a split venture.
