With The Winds - Rehearsal 1995

With The Winds - Rehearsal I 1995
1) In the Caress of the Winds

Depositfiles / Narod

December 6th is the Finnish independence day so I decided to celebrate that a bit late by posting something Finnish. With The Winds was yet another project by the prolific young musicians from Wanderer/Raven/Haven In Shadows and so on. They never released a demo with this one, just a couple of tracks recorded in their rehearsal room. Probably they lost interest or motivation in this one, which is a shame, at least I enjoyed this. No cover, as expected, and I don't think a logo exists either?

This is basically a rehearsal recording, though made with a four-tracker so the sound is quite rough... well, very similar to their other recordings actually. Unfortunately there's some tape wear or whatever dub fail in two or three places, short but annoying little distractions. Otherwise it sounds good. Musically this is again atmospheric and quite slow dark/black metal, this time a complete work with vocals (raw and clean ones), synths and whatnot included. If you enjoyed Haven In Shadows or I Flow In Depths... you probably like this one too. It's much better than IFID. Recommendable.

Hey brother Velkaarn!

Thanks for this one. I have it also in my archives.
About this "Maalinauhantien scene in Vantaa"... I'm very disappointed that Azhemin & Co. fades away and left all great material "unfinished"

Sure, they're active with other bands, but like bands which you mentioned on this WTW posts (IFID, etc.) was the greatest material in BM scene in mid-90's (I mean dark/BM scene)

But thanks anyway... memories live with music \m/

@GREV:

Indeed, it's a pity so many of their projects left behind nothing more than a few rehearsal tracks, they had a lot of potential. I can't help thinking they might have divided their attention a bit too much with so many different projects which after all did have a lot in common too.

Oh well, as you say memories live on... speaking of which I just remembered I was supposed to ask for some more Raven stuff from you. We'll get back to that.

Your wants are more than welcome \m/

I'm actually interested how did you manage to get this piece in the first place? It really was never released and only very few friends had it.

@Iapethos:

Not really sure if I got this one from a tape trader or was it dubbed by the band - I got some rehearsal tracks with the Wanderer and Haven In Shadows demos and dubbed some more from other people later.

I think brother Grev actually has a lot more than I ever did and he got them from the band(s).

I'll remember when I was in tapetrader scene, those tapes was popular. Maybe there's some copies on the road... not impossible at all

Hi.

"They never released a demo with this one, just a couple of tracks recorded in their rehearsal room."

"I got some rehearsal tracks with the Wanderer and Haven In Shadows demos"

Hmm, so there are more songs/rehearsals/recordings from this band that are findable or (except this song)? Because this song in more than amazing.And Grev said "Maybe there's some copies on the road... not impossible at all" so this makes me optimistic too - do you think you could get those/anything else from With the Winds?

Take care.

@Borderline:

I've at least one complete track somewhere but haven't found it! I'm pretty sure Grev has that one too. I suppose I should give up trying to find my dub and just ask him, he probably has it in better quality anyways.

And I think I've also another rehearsal or something but can't find that either. Frustrating thing is that I've found an instrumental rehearsal but I'm not sure who or which one it is!

"Maybe there's some copies on the road... not impossible at all"

Well... it's 50/50 possible that they've made some tracks with WTW?

I'll check my tapes out when I have some time
