Common material from demo to EP question

Hi, some question about something i would like to add but i'm not sure if it's possible:

I've a 3 track demo who is now sold out. But the band used this 3 tracks (and add others) on EP they released later, who seems to be still available.

I presume i can't upload this demo
Also, demo artwork have some differences with EP, do you think it's ok to upload it?

A last question: it is ok to upload albums who are still available in some distros, like Corpus Omni Domini - Monolith Empire (1996, reedition on Wild Rags Records)?

Thanks for your help

ϟϟ FORUM RULES ϟϟ
▸ Official 2010-2017 releases and albums still available at the band or label is strictly forbidden to post or request.

is it from 2010-2017 ? and
Does the band, or any official record company that paid the band, still sell it?
Distribution companies ("distro's") and used sellers do not count.

Unless linked from a band's website, or a record label that has bought the rights to re-release it, then ebay, discogs, etc, do not matter.

Wild Rags Records never paid their bands from everything I read and they went out of business a long time ago anyways.
There were many dodgy record labels in the 1990s (like Unisound, in Greece) that ripped off bands.

Looking at https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/C.O.D./21937 and https://www.discogs.com/COD-Monolith-Em ... ter/433124 , it is ok to upload.

Cheers.

Case of demo songs used in still available CD

Hello,
I know our reglement don't allow songs who have been repressed and are still availaible, but how about 1st version of a song with some differencies and/or not as good production as still available version of the song?

Example:

1st version


Actual version

topics merged, as it is the same question asked again.
If a demo tape's songs are for sale on an official release for sale by a band/label, not allowed.

Many of us do not use iTunes, so could not hear the example.
What difference is it ?
The original version was longer? Or original tape had (an) extra song(s).

Yes, there are many demo's shared here like that, because a band/label did not include all the songs on the re-issue.

If you mean raw / un-mastered original recordings, there are some shared here like that. (eg. Megadeth's Combat Records early-mix of Peace Sells...)
Not all moderators will agree on sharing things like that, so sometimes you will see the links killed.
