Ok, I know its usually the last ditch effort of bands to scrape some money together after they lose some initial success or whatever. But am I the only one who would love to hear the demo tracks of My Dying Bride songs? Or the songs that never made the final cut of an album? I bet there are some rare gems knocking around never to be heard.....

I doubt that there's that much to be honest, but yes, I would of course love to hear anything that hasn't been released.

another biased poll... Off course people would love to hear b-side and other rare songs they are not used to hear.. this is obvious.

For me, its like if you were asking:

Would you prefer to be dead or alive ?

See?

Unfurls the fingers of flame.
Nameless sons and daughters of sin.
Step forward when you hear the bells ring.

Thanks Sear, and btw, good to see you around :) Now I have to give "Father to Son" a listen. Haven`t been listening Bathory for a long time.

@D: not every fan is interested of the rarities. Some people like to collect stuff and some don`t. I`d be interested to listen rarities and perhaps even buy it if there would be enough material to release such an album but it´s not a matter of life and death for me. I could live without it. I`m more interested and focused on their upcoming album :)

and does is matter if the poll is biased in this case? No, it doesn`t.

I voted No, so there, it's not biased! Now, to the matter at hand...

I think the concept of 'b sides/rare tracks is a strange one. I can certainly understand the desire for die-hard fans to hear the original music that morphed into the songs that were officially released, but concurrently, it's music in its first incarnation; it's devoid of the time, hard work and beauty than is crafted in a studio environment that captures the essence of the songwriting. It's certainly interesting to hear rehearsal 'tapes', but i think the final product stands as testimony to the talents that created that work. During my time in MDB i can't remember any instances where professional demos were recorded before the studio...maybe a cassette recording through Aaron's 'quality' mic, but other than that it was the good old tried and tested piece of paper with riffs written on it!
Having said all the boolocks above, it's been a long time since i was involved and i'[m sure times have changed significantly, so who am i to comment eh? i believe that there's probably asre-all of good quality recordings to surface from the period that i was with the chaps!
Anyway, by means of apology to anyone who takes offence..i'm hammered. Two bottles of Diamond bay Shiraz for £7.99!
Si Thi!
Shit off.

In my band we sometimes record our jamsessions with a single track recorder (quality is surprisingly good). That way we can remember the parts we felt good about during the jam without being frustrated like "f*ck, how did we play that again". Don't know if mdb does that, but I would understand that they would not be keen on releasing stuff like that, because it is an easy source for plagiarism off course.

But I voted yes anyway, because there must be something from the early days, which they recorded to give to bookers or promotors to acquire gigs. Or songs that were cut from the tracklist, I don't know, it would just be odd to me that everything they ever recorded is on albums or ep's or whatever kind of release already.
