I actually enjoyed this,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Genesis And Revelation (Audio CD)
First of all I am aware that some fans don't like this collection of demos and bootleg live recordings but as a record of some significant chapters in the bands history it's not to be missed.
The first CD of demos, unheard mixes etc is really interesting and spans the band's early years (with a cracking version of Dawnrazor from 1985) and then progresses to include the 1997 deeper track featuring the wright brothers, mccoy and petit (temporarily together after a 6 year hiatus).
The second cd of a live set from 2000 is not the best quality, granted, but the set is fascinating and shows the band during a time when, their sound was much more 'metal'. I loved the versions of Moonchild and For Her Light, not because they were better than the original line up, but because the power chords are so entertaining.
The DVD is, well, pretty much just a bootleg but it's great to see the early performances from 1986 and the set from 2000, like the CD from the same year is a really interesting one to see.
Overall it's a sketchy collection, but it's great.
