    Well, for what I know, this DT-goes-techno song - Archetype - came to life when the band/some of the band members sat in the studio, boozing, and they came up with the brilliant idea: "Let's do a techno song to really annoy all our fans!"

    I downloaded the demo. Nothing wrong with it :)
    Sounds like it was a good start for the band.
    ..

    ALTOUGH! .. The "techno"-song was a bit strange :)

    archetype is the fourth and last track on the ep "enter suicidal angels", that was released by osmose in 1996 right before dt's third record "the mind's i".
    the trail of life decayed demo has no techno song in it: just midwinter, beyond enlightenment, vernal awakening and void of tranquillity. pay attention in case you dloaded a fake.

    no problem aragorth (btw... did you have a different nick once? have we met before?), you're just lucky i noticed before "doctor tranquillity" (aka villain) did or you'd be in deep trouble, i assure you. ;)

    Ookay... Now that I am here, I must say that Enter Suicidal Angels (ESA) was not a demo, but a mini-CD (or CD-EP, as some people like to call them). It had one song (Zodijackyl Light) that was later released on The Mind's I (TMI) album, two other real DT-songs (Razorfever and Shadowlit Facade) and one techno-remix track (the aforementioned Archetype) made from a few songs of the same TMI-sessions. Although generally heavily disliked by the band's followers, Archetype nevertheless has been mentioned by a few individuals as among the best DT-songs(!) and it has appeared on at least one other CD (some techno-collection, as far as I know). The minialbum ESA itself is often held as the worst DT-release ever, probably largely due to the dislike towards Archetype.

    About Trail of Life Decayed, it was the first demo under the name Dark Tranquillity (previously known as Septic Broiler) and despite the rather poor sound quality, some "tr00" fans still think it is one of the best DT-releases ever.

    I believe this is the right thread to post a collector's question about this demo.

    The additional edition of "Trail of Life Decayed" set aside, the regular edition of this demo is usually described as white tape with both sides having the same program. However, a private communication told me that there exists yet another version of the demo - also on white tape, but with two tracks on each side.

    Could anyone (would be great if the band members themselves could comment!) please shed some light upon this? Does such version really exist? If so, then was it issued prior to, later than, or in parallel with, the "both sides the same program" version?

    Thanks in advance and long live DT.
