EARTH CRISIS: Rarities
Whenever I went to re-upload this post, I realized I had come across a few more unreleased Earth Crisis songs since the gathering of the original collection I put together. I have updated this entry along with the extra songs.
As you should know by now ... Earth Crisis will forever be my favorite band for obvious reasons. Despite the fact that the band offered up a new album a mere year and a half ago, I can't seem to get enough new material. While I am by no means bored with the classics, I simply yearn for some new tracks that I don't already have memorized by heart. It got me thinking to myself, "I should dig through the crates and pull out some "unreleased" tracks from the past". In turn, I put together a mini-compilation of 10 tracks which you probably already have if you are a diehard Earth Crisis fan; but not otherwise. Here's the tracklisting...
1 - The Order That Shall Be (taken from the Ceremony Of Fire/Stones To Mark A Fire compilation put out in 1994/1995 to benefit imprisoned eco-defense warrior Rod Corronado)
2 - Sunshine Of Your Love (taken from the live album The Oath That Keeps Me Free on Victory Records from 1998 ... this is a Creem cover but they made it so fucking heavy that it might as well be their own song)
3 - Smash Or Be Smashed (taken from the live album The Oath That Keeps Me Free on Victory Records from 1998 ... never recorded in the studio)
4 - Fate Of The Neo-Gods (also taken from the live album The Oath That Keeps Me Free ... also never recorded in the studio)
5 - Standing Corpses (recently released live track from 1998 on the re-issue of Breed The Killers ... never recorded in the studio)
6 - Panic Floods (the last song recorded before disbanding in 2001 ... featured on the posthumous release, Last Of The Sane, which was otherwise a collection of cover songs)
7 - State Of Fear (bonus track from the Japanese edition of To The Death)
8 - Not One Remains (another bonus track from the Japanese edition of To The Death)
9 - Into A Sea Of Stone (bonus demo track from the deluxe edition of Neutralize The Threat)
10 - Void (another bonus demo track from the deluxe edition of Neutralize The Threat)
I am sure there are some more tracks floating around out there. If anyone has anything to share, feel free to do so. I am also including the infamous Firestorm Demo session from 1993 which you can download HERE. I know this is commonly floating around on the internet, but it is usually labeled incorrectly. This demo features 4 tracks that were never re-recorded for an official release (unless you count the 7" Seventh Dagger put out to coincide with the release of To The Death which contains two of the unreleased tracks).
