  • 6
  • I played drums with Ligeia (CAN) from 1986-1988, under my given name. This was the first band to use the name Ligeia (est. 1986 in Ottawa, Canada). I have mastered the Ligeia catalogue from its cassette sources. Includes original Annihilator members Dave Scott (bass) and John Bates (vocals). Includes Ligeia's version of "Alison Hell" co-written by John Bates and Dave Scott. Thus far I have released Ligeia's Thrash Metal monument "Die Or Be Killed" for promotional purposes. Hope you enjoy and watch this space for updates on the release.

    Another song from Ligeia has been released on Graham MacSkimming's (drums) Soundcloud page, this time from the second Ligeia demo, recorded 1988. Al Levy replaced Al Clermont on guitar (2 Als!). Clermont was from Blackwitch (Ottawa, Ontario) and Levy later formed Boxcutter (Vancouver, BC) in the 90's. This song is called "Schizos Are Never Alone". Yet to be released from the 1988 2-song demo is "Dead And Gone."

    The Canadian Ligeia's first demo (1986) has been released to the public for the first time in its entirety after 32 years. The aging last cassette copies of the demo were remastered and restored brilliantly by Michel Petulli mastering veteran of PMT Studio from BC, Canada. Ligeia's 4-song 1986 demo and the band's history can now be found on my Youtube Channel and Soundcloud page. Here are the playlist links :

    Hope you enjoy the Metal!!! (metal1)

    A new digital master of Ligeia's "Schizos Are Never Alone", from their 2nd demo tape (1988), is up on MacG's Music on Youtube. The 1988 2-song demo was recorded before the release of Annihilator's version, and all music and lyrics (by "Alison Hell" author John Bates) are written by Ligeia. The second lineup included Allan Levy on guitar, who replaced Al Clermont who played on Ligeia's previous 1986 Demo. The rest of the lineup remained as: John Bates - vocals, Dave "Scott" Richer - bass, and Graham MacSkimming - drums.
