    No cover available, this shown here is made by sanctum.

    A bit of "His Story": sanctum was on Holiday in Oslo, when he was approached by someone, who ask: "Do you like Metal? Then you might like this:" and gave him a tape. "Well, I'm not into death-metal" "No,no, some people compare us with Fates Warning" and went away. Well unknown stranger, heartfelt thanks for this gift of genius, too bad there wasn't even a contact-adress on the tape, I would 've ordered my own copy. This demo is without doubt among absolut best Progressive Metal Demos of all times. I prefer it even to the later CD "Entrance", because it has the warmer, more organic sound!

    Wow! I have to download this!

    I have downloaded "Entrance" before and liked it very much, so I bought the CD while living in Japan last year (I found a great heavy metal CD store in Tokyo which unfortunately closed down late last year).

    Long time no see, Boring Oldfart. I haven't found much new stuff. Well, I've bought all of Event's CD's on Ebay after listening to them on Youtube. Hopefully they'll arrive soon. I think I'll rip them and post them here when I have time.
