Bandcamp. If you've heard of it you'll know why we are using it! If you've not heard of it you'll thank us for telling you!

Can you imagine a website where bands can upload full resolution audio files (.aiff) and you can chose what type of format your download is, and there's a minimum of third party overheads reducing the band's income.

Imagine no more because that's what Bandcamp is. By starting with the highest possible quality source, they’re able to convert our tracks into a bunch of different format and quality combinations for you to listen to, including MP3 (320, VBR V0), Ogg Vorbis, Apple Lossless, FLAC and AAC (aka .m4a or iTunes store format)

You can see why we have chosen bandcamp as our supply partner for our downloads.

Having said that In the days of our demo recordings the facilities available to up-coming bands were rather basic compared to this century!

The demo tracks were mostly recorded on a cassette based "portastudio" or in some cases directly off the sound desk at gigs but this also imbues the tracks with a certain 'patina', which given their 30+ years age is quite fitting, so please understand that these are not modern recording studio quality. We're currently leaving the tracks open for streaming so you can hear what you are getting before buying!

Over the next 9 months, in the lead up to a UK and European tour in September 2020, Pallas are embarking on far-ranging series of retrospective anthologies, including archive videos, free downloads of gig recordings and demos, as well as a series of CDs.


With such an extensive and varied back catalogue, it was fitting that these anthology CD’s would not just be re-mastering or slight remixing exercises but a deeper exploration of the band’s varied trademark sounds.The first of these retrospective anthology CD’s is entitled ‘The Edge Of Time’




The band has always featured both atmospheric and cinematic moments on albums throughout their history and this collection of new versions sets out to explore that element of the band further.


 Niall Graeme and Ronnie have been involved in film music side projects and have brought added cinematic elements to some tracks, whilst others follow a more atmospheric interpretation. The overall chilled and laid back concept of the album harks back to the days of plugging in the headphones and immersing yourself in a soundscape.


 Initially, the CD will only be available directly through the band’s Bandcamp site, which also includes downloads in many formats including lossless, complete with a selection of alternate versions.


 The featured tracks encompass the whole of the band’s recorded career and are:


1. Ghostdancers

The album gets off to a relatively familiar start with the least stripped down of the featured tracks. Much of the original instrumentation of Ghostdancers, from The Dreams of Men, remains but the main focus is given to the violin parts contributed by the acclaimed Traditional Scottish fiddler Paul Anderson.


2. Violet Sky

After a linking section of ambience the atmospheric Violet Sky, originally on 'XXV', features new Spanish guitar from Niall Mathewson over a lush atmospheric background. 


3. New Life

The atmospheric vibe continues with a stripped-down haunting version of New Life originally from the 'wearewhoweare' album this mix features a gentle acoustic guitar in place of the original solo.


4. Just A Memory

A new interpretation of Just A Memory, originally on ‘The Wedge’, continues the laid back atmosphere with a mellow cello taking the main melody part over a mixed percussion bed.


5. In Cold Blood

A radical re-interpretation of In Cold Blood, from ‘wearewhoweare’, carries us into an imagined soundtrack for a modern-day horror movie.


6. Ark Of Infinity

Delving back to ‘The Sentinel’ period the album enters an orchestral territory with a full-blown cinematic treatment of Ark Of Infinity. Originally titled after a Dr Who story the space exploration motif is continued with some parts sounding like potential Star Trek or Star Wars themes, which could only be hinted at with the technology available at its original recording.


7. The Blinding Darkness Of Science

Continuing the orchestral section of the album, The Blinding Darkness Of Science, originally from ‘The Cross and Then Crucible’ has a sense of urgency in tune with the increasing pace of technology.


8. Something In The Deep

Both atmospheric and cinematic, Something In The Deep a track originally on 'XXV', features a new end section complete with sirens calling the unwitting to the deep.


9. This Haunted Land

Somewhere between the Deep and the Edge of Time lies a haunted land of shimmering orchestras and ethereal voices. This Haunted Land is a track from keyboard player Ronnie Brown and his collaborator Bill Marshall which lends a special orchestral atmospheric ambience as an extended link piece to the final track


10. Stranger On the Edge of Time

Starting life in the early 80s as the experimental B side to the original ‘Arrive Alive’ single, the album concludes with this special 21st-century re-imagining of its’ keyboard pulse and mellotron quirkiness, with Paul Mackie adding some spacey vocals, with the track finally fading away into infinity.

wearewhoweare Studio Report Videos

Catch up with the video reports from the band as the band completed the album:



Download The Sentinel Rough Mixes & Demos

We have recently uncovered the rough mixes of The Sentinel which the band took away with them from the Eddy Offord's studio in Atlanta, which gives another insight into what the LP could have been had fate not intervened.

During the last few days before the band left the Studio in Atlanta Eddy Offord sat at the sound desk with them and made a rough mix of the album - which can be compared and contrasted with the two mixes that were later released.

It is well known that the band and record company were not happy with the final mix, which had been rushed to accommodate a new project Eddy was hired for by a band with considerable more clout than they had, and a remix was made for the later american release.

We have also re-worked a previously only available as medium quality mp3 exclusive release "The Sentinel Demos" and made it available at much better quality through our new bandcamp facility to give you some idea of what a double album of The Sentinel may have been like.


This extensive archive of rehearsal and live recordings includes the tracks that would have been on the album had it been a double and never found their way onto B sides and the later CD are: A New Age DawnsThe ScrollsThe Cell, Flashpoint 2, and The Calm Before the Storm which explore the storyline in much more detail than the truncated eventual LP did.
