A compilation tape, again, I've spent some time ripping these ones recently. It's kind of easy. This particular one is a third of a series by Beverina, I must say I haven't heard any of the previous ones - this was an item I just got in random from a small distro. However, the label Beverina was familiar to me, with loads of Slavic and Baltic bands. Of which a load are obviously featured here. The genres of music and quality vary from artist to another and I have to admit I used to prefer this to several other compilations back when I got it. No longer though, most of the material sounds to me awfully generic if not poor but for select ones - probably this is due my taste having been "evolved" or whatever. Still, there are some very good tracks and many not at all notable ones.

This one is a rip of an original tape, with cover scans included. Sound quality and levels are much better than your average 90's compilation - there's nothing exclusive so I can't really recommend it to anyone already into the bands involved and with all their stuff. The division of the bands is, as you see from the track list, Slavonic (mostly ex-USSR) bands on side A, Baltic (well, they're Baltic) start and go for most of side B with a handful categorised as "Tears of Stone" ending it - these are gothic rock/metal. I don't think I've much more to say about this one, but do pick it up if you're curious. Standout tracks for me include 1, 2, 4, 14 & 16. Oh by the way, Finnish Fall of the Leafe ends side A - even if not a Slavonic band.

@ohtar:

Hmm that volume has an interesting trackilisting... would certainly be cool to get it! Do you know who were on vol 2?

Vol 1 has Maze Of Cako Torments. I need their demos.

I am sorry to tell you that there is no info on the 2nd vol.

@ohtar:

Don't worry about that, knowing the contents without having access to the tape would just be teasing anyways! Maybe someone uploads a rip someday.

I think I have somewhere at my flat in Riga Master tapes of Maze of Caco and also "Unto a long glory..." all parts :)
Still someone have some interest? :)
