I have decided to release this music as mp3's through NLBMe Management (and the sadly defunct blog-host Dutch Black Metal Promotion) because it celebrates my own first two live shows ever, done with my high school band Endemonized. Even though we were musically pretty bad, hardly rehearsed our songs, and had no eye for production values at all while performing, we were proud to have introduced black death metal to the unsuspecting people in the audience. Nevertheless, it still evokes a lot of great memories when I listen to it and I am still damned proud of the product. It was originally shot with a videocamera, hence the sound. I still own a copy of the 1995 show (I sadly lost the tape from 1994) and transferred it to digital audio. The faux interview track is an extra I made for this 'release' from an interview recorded shortly after the show.
