As one of the people that's been obsessed with all things Disembodied/Martyr AD for a number of years, I have always desired to know more about the 2002 Demo that has been floating around the internet for a number of years now. I emailed Tara to see what the scoop is, and if there were any other demos. Then when I woke up this morning before work, I had an email from Joel in my inbox containing ALL of the various Martyr AD demos. Suffice to say, I was pretty excited, and I'm really happy that they're letting us push them out to the world semi-officially. Joel had also made digital covers of the demos, which is great for all of us completists out there.

First up is a Human Condition pre-production demo. It has 9 songs, and was recorded live at their practice space to 4 track. There are some minor differences in some of the songs, but you'll notice that a decent amount of lyrics and vocal patterns are different.

Next up is the demo from 2002. This was the last recording with Mike Fisketti on vocals. It contains two finished songs that were later re-recorded for On Earth As It Is In Hell, and two unfinished songs that never had vocals recorded, and have never seen the light of day until now. It was recorded in a legit studio, and featured Jared from 7 Angels 7 Plagues on drums, hence the title of "Jared Demo".

And finally there's the Summer '03 Demo, which was recorded in the early stages of the second Martyr AD lineup. It features 5 songs in total, and much like the Human Condition demo, it was recorded live at the practice space to a 4 track.
