Minotauri - Rehearsal 1995

Minotauri - Rehearsal 1995
I'm A Ghost
2) Shores Of My Childhood


In the late 1995 I wrote a few letters with Ari "Sinister Satyr" Honkonen, the mastermind of the Finnish metallers Morningstar. Besides the letters, I sent him tapes to record some rehearsal etc. material and along with the Morningstar stuff, I got these two songs from his new project, still then called Minotaur. Since those days the name of the band changed as he added an "i" to the end (I guess he remembered the German Minotaur...) and the music evolved into traditional doom vein.

The two tracks here are a low quality rehearsal recording, but audible enough. There's some annoying tape imperfection on the second song, but I don't think it ruins the whole thing. I'm not really 100% sure how to describe the style of these songs, so I'll just give in and call them "metal" - quite comparable to latter Morningstar actually. Worth the download for the curiosity value I suppose. No covers so I just slapped on the Minotauri logo here and for the convenience I've named them as Minotauri already here.

Could you reup this reh please? It is dead on metalarea, it seems nobody has it on slsk or dc++
so you're my last hope of getting it.
Also, do you have their 1997 Axe Attack demo?

Sure, uploading as I type this. Sorry, don't have the demos... weren't they re-released in some format or do I remember wrong?

Anyways, Grev has the Minotauri 90's demos, I'll ask him about them later, but getting 'em from there will take some time.
