The Promise – True Love Demo

October 16, 2009

I was doing some lurking a few days ago and came across this demo posted on the Stuck in the Past blog. This demo featured members of Another Victim would and would eventually go on to become the first 7″ep from The Promise, “My True Love”. Another Victim opened with these two songs at Hellfest 2001 (last show) and later handed out these demos. I was shocked when I came across this, I had never heard of there being a “True Love” demo or had even thought of it.

I guess they only made a handful of these so coming across one would be hard to do. If anyone is trying to get rid of one or knows of one being sold, send me an email, I really need to get my hands on one of these. The recordings are the exact same as the EP released by Deathwish.

EDIT: From Buske
True Love was the original name of the band. We were talking with EVR about releasing a full-length and they informed us of another band named True Love that had the name already copy written. EVR advised us to contact this band to avoid any future legal issues regarding the name and they weren’t very cool with us borrowing their name.

While siting around the house one day, we had a “name the band” gather and started digging through our CD collections. Our good friend, Grez, pulled out the Ringworm record entitled, “The Promise” and there it was – hands down, unanimously

    I’m stoked to finally get a confirmation that it’s a Ringworm reference. OHHC!
