Thorns (por) - Promo '94

Thorns (por) - Promo '94
1) Welcome to Your Doom
2) The Kingdom Beyond

Mediafire / RGhost

Something different today, here's (again?!) some heavy metal from Portugal. I got this tape from one of my tape traders and yes, you probably guessed the band name got me to pick it. I wasn't too excited when I listened to it as basic heavy metal was not really something of interest to me back then. Listening to it now after a long break... it's still not really my shot of vodka. I'm really, really picky when it comes to "ordinary" heavy metal, power metal and whatever. Though it does have certain crude charm to it, much better than overpolished Helloween pastiches. I'd warm up even more to this were I drunk. Sound is a bit on the quiet side, might have to do with the unknown generation dub, but otherwise good enough and is the reason for much of the appeal. I better try listening to this while drinking.

No covers or much anything, being made from a dub and apparently the band changed their name to Please Remember quite soon after releasing this tape (Metal Archives actually lists this under that monicker but I'll go with my trader's info here!) and made another promo in 1997 as well as appearing on a compilation (or few). Not much else to say, give it a shot, it's not bad after all.

Good evening Brother Velkaarn.
Thanks for the upload. I haven't heard that yet. So, it's nice to heard something "new" besides when I'm working my archives.. I would say that my archives is extreme "savotta"

I'll try to do your wants someday before school starts (in august 14th if I'll remember right?)

Are you sure these aren't outtakes by The Tubes?

Yeah, I know it is! Take your time, "vielähän on kesää jäljellä..." and now that is playing in your head!


I'm almost positive! Though I haven't heard The Tubes... I better fix that. They seem interesting. Thanks for the tip!
