Realm of Frost - Rehearsal Track '96


Realm of Frost - Rehearsal track 1996
1) Through the Valley of Frost

Yandex / RGhost

Metal, as promised, and today I've once again teamed up with brother Grev to fulfill a request by sister Borderline, this is the single unreleased (sort of) rehearsal track by Finnish black metal band Realm of Frost. And yeah, I took my sweet time getting to it, I know. Thanks to Grev for dubbing this to me and as there's obviously no cover art for this I've just used the band pic from the '96 demo.

This track does not appear on the demo, adding the total of Realm of Frost songs to respectable three. I don't know if this was recorded before or after the demo and to be honest not much more either related to the band I hadn't already mentioned here. This song is shorter than the either of the demo tracks but not much and the rehearsal recording has a pretty good sound. Quite clear, with the percussion as most dominating element, vocals and strings somewhat falling back. Varying tempos and a slow, atmospheric part in the latter half. Would've been interesting to hear another demo from them but looks like this is all we got. Pick this up if you liked the demo or enjoy collecting somewhat obscure 90's Finnish stuff.

Thank you my brothers, finally! And worth waiting for! Oh how I love this reh 90's sound!! Thanks so much again. Excellent song.
I have no idea why, but it makes me want to listen to Unhola demos again - I find the feeling of these two quite similar.
