Ainu (fin) - Rehearsal Tracks 1998
1) Untitled I
2) Untitled II
I seem to have forgotten this one on my desktop even as I ripped it a long time ago. At the same time as these Raven posts actually since it was on the same tape. This was another project by the guys playing in Raven, Wanderer, Haven In Shadows etc... and as far as I know they recorded only these two songs, which are instrumental and not probably quite finished. Now that I have scared and driven away about half of the readers with that statement I'll continue by saying the two (lenghty) songs presented here are very listenable and promising, it is a shame they didn't continue with this. Unless they finished them and used the final versions for some other project. Named the untitled songs as Untitled I & II as I tend to do.
The music is atmospheric and mid-tempoish, not as slow as Haven In Shadows for example and quite heavy on the keyboards. A very rough comparison might be something between Haven In Shadows/Wanderer/I Flow In Depths... from these guys and Thy Serpent/older Gehenna from other people. At least on the first track with its bombastic and sweeping keyboards. Second track is a little different in its flow and reminds me of (very old) Old Man's Child material besides the names dropped so far. But take a listen and make your own crude comparisons, it's worth trying out.
