Carmilla - Live Explosion '88-'89 (July 30, 2018)
This CD is killer. It gives me hope about the possibility of reissues of similar bands (crossing fingers for Velle Witch). I wrote a review on Metal Archives as well as for the demo. I know these don't have far reach, but if I turned a couple people onto Carmilla, I'll consider that a success.

The new music posted on your Bandcamp is interesting. I advise others to check it out once they've gotten their fill of Live Explosion.

Yeah, I'd kill for that Velle Witch demo to get a reissue. I also am curious to check out more of Altemis, another great all-female band that unfortunately didn't last too long. Shit, even Alicia (Junko Sera's old band before forming Marge Litch) would be ideal.

There's some hope that a reissue could come for those some day. I never thought Quest Object Project's demo reissue would ever happen, and wasn't too sure the upcoming Jesus Le Dernier Slow demo would happen, but they thankfully have. I wish more musicians like Kizakura san took the time to preserve their music history as she's done, a lot of musicians don't think people care about that stuff, but I think many would be surprised.

I hope she is able to get a North American metal label or distro to carry the Carmilla CD. I could see a lot of people not regularly into Japameta digging this band, but typical prices in Japan would turn off a lot of people. Hopefully, that can be changed for the better.

I sent her some information on a label over here that might make things work out.

Damn, Altemis seems really good. Too bad there's only two songs on YouTube (as far as I could find) and Google isn't showing remnants of it elsewhere.

Live Explosion '88-'89 not only shows that old demos can be reissued but that other unreleased recordings may also exist. The type of person who would be interested in a reissue of a decades-old demo isn't going to balk at less than pristine production values, so I say bring on the live shows, rehearsals and unfinished tracks.

Thank you soooo much!!!!!!
I pleased that you mentioned "Bloody Mary" and "2000Maniacs".
"Bloody Mary" is very old song same as "Nightmare".
This song's tempo was more slowly and vocal line was different.
We were corpse paint arount that time. Big Grin

You're welcome. Smile "2000 Maniacs" definitely stands out as the best, though there aren't any songs on the album that I consider bad.

Do you happen to have any pictures of you guys wearing corpse paint? That sounds pretty cool.

So sorry to interject, but I'll eventually break most of the recent pages of this thread into Carmilla's central thread, since this release is already old news. I'm mostly allowing it to remain active because of the reissue.

I'll let you know, Kizakura Yoshino, when I create the separate Carmilla thread for you to subscribe to. Cheers! Big Grin
