A short one for today but highly relevant to my upcoming Friday night's activities, this is a two-song rehearsal tape by the Hellenic legend Zemial, contributed by brother Baldemar. Thanks! No tracklisting and of course no cover either were included but these songs were easy to figure out, for change. Quite good sound quality. Extremely plain and unnecessary placeholder cover by me.
As you most likely know, both tracks appear on the "Sleeping Under Tartarus" EP's B-side, though in reverse order there and they aren't exactly long tracks. Well, these versions are even shorter so the total running time is a wee bit over five minutes. But hey, quality over quantity and all that! They sound different enough from the EP versions to merit a listen, slightly rougher and... softer? Fuller? ...Fluffier sound, vocals are more gruff and closer to old RC, Varathron and who have you. That's enough, recommended if you like Zemial and old Greek material. If you're not familiar with either for whatever outlandish excuse you whip up it's about time to get acquainted and this is a suitably bite-sized morsel to sample.
