30 Years Ago: ATHEIST release Beyond demo


ATHEIST released their third demo, Beyond, on this day in 1988. $4 ($5 overseas) to the guys either in Brandenton or Sarasota, Florida for a copy, dubbed tape and xerox cover.

...that was right after that compilation came out, and we wanted a new demo of some of the stuff that we had been working on, and coupled with the fact that we had just changed our name which is always a pain in the ass, we wanted to get the word out you know?? There was not a whole lot of confusion, we really did not achieve much until after we became ATHEIST and released that demo, it ended up being the most popular demo on the Metal Forces demo list for over a year, that was very very cool.
