Since we get requests about it every now and then, we have finally added scans of the entire VOICES FROM THE DARKSIDE columns, that originally appeared in the German Horror Infernal magazine from July 1991 to April 1993. You can download rar files (that include the column pages and the magazine cover) of each single issue in our HISTORY section. But please remember that they still have been written in German and that the mentioned address at the end of it is no longer valid.
Century Media Records will release a complete demo collection of Sweden’s EVOCATION, entitled "Evoked From Demonic Depths – The Early Years". Included is "The Ancient Gate" demo, the "Promo 1992" demo, previously unreleased rehearsal tracks and the unreleased track ‘Genesis’ which has been written in 1992, but so far has never ever been available before. All tracks have been mastered (using the original master tapes) at Fascination Street Studio (OPETH, PARADISE LOST, ENSLAVED, GRAND MAGUS). The CD version also includes three live bootleg video enhancements as a bonus. Besides the release is packed with several band photos, concert flyers and other visual content from the years 1991 to 1993 plus in-depth information on the history of EVOCATION, from their start in 1991 until the reunion in 2005 and on until the release of the band’s third studio album "Apocalyptic". Guitarist Marko Palmén comments on every song with a detailed view into the writing process of the demos. "Evoked From Demonic Depths – The Early Years" will be released as CD with 32-page booklet and an O-card as well as on deluxe 2 LP (180g vinyls, gatefold sleeve, printed inner sleeves) and as digital download at the end of June 2012.
