'Midnight' Demo

No Label - 2003

Number of CDr copies is unknown, but very few are known to still exist.  Some copies came with handmade/handwritten sleeves by Athenar.

 

This CDr was where it all started!  Athenar came out of the basement with this, sent it to Omid at Outlaw Recordings, and it became the infamous 12" Vinyl release titled "Funeral Bell".  

 

The phone number on the back cover of CDr was removed to keep the 'Midnight calls' to a minimum! 

Tracklist:

1. Funeral Bell

2. All Hail Hell

3. Servant Of No One

4. Unholy and Rotten

5. I Am Violator

6. Hot Graves

7. Long Live Death

There were originally supposed to be 100 copies but the pressing plant made 23 addtional copies. Note original Athenar artwork from Midnight CDr used for one side of record label art.

Leather Sleeve Edition:

30 copies were put into silk screened black "leather sleeves" hand made by Athenar's blood kin. 

Misc. Notes:

  • 15 copies included a black disco jacket sleeve inside, 15 without.

  • A few copies without the black disco jacket have the regular black silkscreened cover inside the leather sleeve, those copies essentially have a double sleeve.

The remaining 93 records were placed in black silkscreened sleeves which make up the Regular Edition.
