when a great demo song doesn't make it on the record

Post by force perspective on Tue Aug 25, 2015 9:12 pm

With the recent passing of Greg Sweet from Watchman made me think of this topic. God Bless, Rest in Peace Greg.

"Fear No Evil" was a killer song and it was not recorded for their debut "Generation".
Does anyone know why it wasn't or any other background on the band?

what demo songs do think we're great but didn't make it onto the record?
or once you heard the demo thought it was better than the studio recording.

if you've never heard "Fear No Evil" check it out here.

Fear No Evil was on their first release.

1.Fear No Evil 04:55 
2.Tug Of War 03:18 
3.Set Free 04:12 
4.The Healer 03:33 
Side B
5.Kingdom Come 04:57 
6.Power From The Land 04:23 
7.Christian Soldier 03:18 
8.His Song
Great album, and slightly better than Generations, although I love Generations still.  In about 1999 they released another album under the name "impact" with most songs from Generation and a few newer ones (that weren't quite as good).  Wish I'd have gotten that album when it was released, but the three or so newer songs just didn't grab me so I didn't but it.

None of the three songs from Sawol's demo appeared on their album and they're all very good.

I love demos, the more raw the better. Which puts the old Vengeance Rising demo of Beheaded as one of my favorites. So raw.

Make No Provision by Arsenal only appeared on a various secular album entitled
Tampa Bay's Metal Mercenaries: The Invasion

That one song can now also be found on YouTube

I guess we could mention "A Space Called You" by Deliverance. It made it onto California Metal, but never made it on a proper Deliverance album until they started getting reissued (if memory serves me correctly). Always liked that song. Captures some of the great early D style.

i also liked the big D's original version of "Attack" better than the re-record on "what a joke".

Actually, force perspective was right. 

Fear No Evil was just a demo cassette.


an eight song demo entitled Fear No Evil

Watchmen
Type:Demo
Release date:1987

Does anyone know why it wasn't or any other background on the band?

I had read many moons ago that the main reason was because they brought in someone from the outside to produce instead of their guitar player being the producer (he had done Fear No Evil) and the new producer wanted a different sound.  I also had heard that Greg wanted to change styles,  too.

I have no clue how accurate any of that is though

Ransom - Sin Killer

tell me who was the genius that did want to record their best song for their Intense Records debut release? This song has balls.

I love that song



While not Christian this topic when reading it Nirvana's "Blandest" came to mind, it was a Bside of Love Buzz I think , but never made it on Bleach I think it would have been a good addition

Just thought of Seventh Angel's "Seven Angels" never made it onto an album but it was on the Heed the Warning demo. Same goes for the Heed the Warning song.
