  • supposedly had a 1980 demo, can't even find anyone who has clasped eyes or ears on it...does this one actually exist?

    Quoted from the bands Official Website: http://www.rekuiem.com/biography.htm
    After many rehearsals the band stepped out at first into the Midlands vibrant music environment and began to play local gigs at venues such as Cannock Forum (no longer in existence) and the famous Lafayette club in Wolverhampton where just about anybody famous had played in their early days. The band soon built up a strong local following and began to spread their wings further afield. This period also produced some early demos recorded at M.R.S. studios in Walsall which are an exceptionally rare find today. (if you have one, it's probably worth a small fortune). These sold well at gigs, to the extent that eventually the pressure for a vinyl release became too much to resist.

    So yes demos exist but I have neither seen or spoken with anyone who owns a copy.
    Maybe some NWOBHM-maniac here knows more.

    it's a chance in a million to come across any of it one these days,even the band members don't seem to have or remember them more clearly,that's a real pity,they single was a fine piece of nwobhm,it also seems to me that their reincarnation REKUIEM has big problems with releasing second album "Raise The Dead",first one was excellent

    Well,here's some info from interview granted by the band to NWoBHM Vault! site :
    "Did REQUIEM record a demo before going to the vinyl stage ? If so, can you give us some details about the tracks, how did you sell this demo ?
    Yes, we recorded a demo at Midland Recording Studios. Featuring: 'Mists of Hell', 'Devils Shrine' and 'Sinners Remorse'. We sold the tape at gigs. This is probably worth a pretty penny if you can find it."
    Hope this would come in handy!

    Totally agreed the first one was highly underrated and I loved it...too bad the label folded...hopefully that second one sees the light of day sometime...

    from the band website scarce info one can conclude that they have been in the process of recording it,however when it's gonna be out,or by which label is as of yet an open question,we can keep our fingers crossed and bide our time
