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!

Colin

Colin FraserGreat vocal from Paul again. Very powerful and emotive with a lot of the pulse being deployed on the crash and China cymbals with a lot of triplet feel fills throughout the song.

 

 

 

 

 

 Paul

Paul MackieMore distressing bass please….. Go on Greame….. “25 true honest men” is there such a thing? 

You better hope there is cause time is running out real quick here. 

This track has its own thing going on and I cant nail it down but it sure is big.

 

 

  

Ronnie

Ronnie BrownOne of my favourites. Powerful, authoritative, suddenly delicate – very much in the Pallas style.

 

 

 

 

  

 Graeme

Graeme MurrayThis kicks off with a wonderful piece of orchestral magic from Ron. I really enjoy the tense atmosphere of this track. It goes so well with the lyric. 

This track represents a turning point in the Sentinel’s mission. He has won over the minds of the young but realises that politicians are incapable of agreement and it’s time to put forward his suggestion for a way forward. 

This is also however an ultimatum. I think this is a great tension builder and love the throbbing feel.

 

 

  

Niall

Niall MatthewsonFor me, there is something about the chording that sends shivers up my spine. I love the latent power of this track.

The piano arpeggio was from an idea that Ronnie and myself had been working on for some time before.  

 

 

 

   

Lyrics

Cling on to life, cling on to hope 

Cling to your future on the end of a burning rope 

Should you choose to light the fuse

And ignore that for which I labour

I’ll see you burning bright

In the night sky of your neighbours

 

Is this the final act of your sad and sorry play

You took our gift of Paradise and you threw it all awa

Like a mini supernova you'll be over in a flash

Turn your history, your culture and your children into ash….

 

Twenty five true honest men

To rule your world with wisdom

We can all begin again

Give me Twenty Five, good honest men

We've saved your world before

We can save you once again…

 

I am no God, I am just a man

But your reticence to listen, calls for a totally different plan

I have a mission to judge you,

From a higher intellectual plain

To decide if you are worthy, if your existence will remain

 

You must cease the endless bickering and find a different way

If you fail to heed these warnings, I will sweep you all away

You have twenty five short hours to comply with all I say

Any semblance of a failure and this will be your final day

 

Give me Twenty Five true honest men

None can corrupt or interrupt

In pursuance of this plan

 

Just Twenty Five to dedicate their lives

To lead you, to guide you, to a future filled with light
