I emailed a tape trader/ record collector who got the tapes the same time as I did in the 1980s to let MALHAVOC's founder James C. borrow his copies.
Since there is interest, then everybody can pay to hear them when officially released when remastered for CD / tape / vinyl / digital files.

EDIT:
no response back ever from the guy after a few emails.

I doubt it. James has said a few times he didn't save his 1980s material, or doesn't think he did.
The few friends in Pickering, Ontario into the band that copied everything...who knows.
One guy I think who had all the 1980s recordings, I mean all of it, was their photographer/friend Marc Demers, who was at all the early shows too I think, but he died a long time ago.
--
I did finally hear back in the past 2 years from a couple guys, and they said they didn't have the 1984 demos anymore.

I have been asking another tapetrader penpal of mine in the last few years about a one of a kind tape I made for him.
Malhavoc's debut gig I recorded (the all ages matinee gig, not the evening drinking show), with the 1984 demos, maybe with '85 or '87 rehearsal tracks to fill the tape up.

Asked again a couple weeks ago, and he said he only managed to check one or two boxes of old tapes and didn't see it yet, but still has more boxes to search, but doesn't have enough time.
He is busy as a parent, with work, and all of his old tapes from the 1980s were shoved aside and stored in a closet or his garage for 20 years or more.

It is just a matter of waiting, as he is the type to never throw/give/sell off his music collection, so am confident he will find it eventually.
He did send me a box of stuff many years ago to borrow and copy when he finally found some stuff I wanted.
