Before parting ways with original vocalist Liadain O'Driscoll two songs were recorded in late 2007 for what was initially intended to be a split 7" with Battle Of Wolf 359. After the line up change the songs were given new lyrics/titles the following year and the vocals were re-recorded by Jamie & Cory, and while the BOW359 split fell through the songs were eventually released as one side of a split 10" with Grinding Halt.

We present here the original recordings digitally for the first time, although they had appeared on hand made tapes and cdrs for a UK tour in late 2007. These version feature Liadain's vocals and lyrics, and appear under their original titles.

"The Burning Times" (aka "Luxophage")
"The Dead Hand Of The Future" (aka "Rebuilding Salem)

Please note this is the original unmastered rough mix.
