THE ORIGINAL MASTER OF THIS WAS TWEAKED IN 2006 TO PROVIDE BETTER CLARITY ON MOST TRACKS RESULTING IN THE VERSION OF THE ALBUM FOR DOWNLOAD HERE


ALBUM DESCRIPTION :

Whores of Babylon originally started life as a Duo ( Gobz & Shaun ). they initially built up a following in the underground around the world in 1992 after the release of their debut 6 track demo tape `Eternal` purely through interacting with fanzines.

The Gothic fanzines liked the Gothic elements of the music whilst the extreme Metal fanzines liked the well crafted use of theOrchestral type keyboard sounds and samples contained within. In 1994 a live version of the band was created to enable them to perform live as well.

The likes of Quorthon`s Black Mark Records & Candlelight picked up on the band in 1993 after the underground promotion and the fact that Gobz was working as audio engineer with another of Candlelight`s artists `ETERNE`.

This album received high praise from the Gothic & Black Metal community although not so much from the standard Metal community who didn`t quiet understand it at the time although TERRORIZER liked it and gave the band an interview in one of there issues

The band`s brand of Symphonic Gothic Metal draws influences from the likes of : Sisters of Mercy, Celtic Frost, Cinema Films & Metallica and this album is almost like a double album as it clocks in at nearly 75 minutes !

OUR RIGHTS TO SELL :

Originally one of the early releases on Candlelight Records although we feel that we have the right to sell these songs here as all studio time was paid for by the band and the majority of the promotion for this album was done by the band themselves through hard work in the network of Gothic & extreme Metal fanzines around the world at the time. Our advance was very small and we never received any royalties for this release or any correspondance from the label from 1995 onwards, plus it was re-released again in 1999 without our knowledge. If anyone from Candlelight Records would like to dispute our right to sell this here then please email us from the main Lovegun Records site at www.lovegun.co.uk
