Pallas (2) ‎– The Arrive Alive Demos

9 × File, FLAC, Album


Previously available as part of the now sold out "Mythopoeia" CDR released 2002 and later on an mp3 album, these tracks are the original demos recorded at the rehearsal , the ones that lead to the band being signed by EMI and the subsequent release of that album.

The grandiose plans for a double album were tempered by the record company executives along with the imperative for the snappy radio play oriented material...these demo tracks hint at what could have been. In those days the facilities available to up-coming bands were rather basic compared to this century, the tracks were mostly recorded on a cassette based "portastudio" or in some cases directly off the sound desk at gigs but this also imbues the tracks with a certain 'patina', which given their 30+ years age is quite fitting, so please understand that these are not recording studio quality.

The original cassettes were transferred to digital as aiff files so now they can be downloaded at a better quality than the previously available mp3s from 11 years ago. We have also added some additional tracks from that period which had not been featured on previous releases.

The download is available at the band's Bandcamp web-page.
