Aside from the sound quality, which is excusable, given that this is a demo, this record is really great. Not as great as the band's later albums, but still very beautiful.

Meh it isn't rare to find demos that sound better than actual albums. Aquilus' and Ne Obliviscaris' demos have good production for example while Edge of Sanity's Crimson and The Ruins of Beverast's Rain Upon The Impure are pretty poor imo. But I digress. Didn't know about this demo though. Shall have a listen soon.

Dude, Crimson's production is perfect. The remaster it had was totally unnecessary.

I reckon it could get spruced up a bit. It's certainly manageable unlike TRoB's RUtI. I didn't even know a remaster existed.

It's the one that was split up into individual songs and had a few seconds removed from it. It doesn't sound especially different to be honest.

I don't think it's fair to compare the sound quality of a demo recorded in early-mid 90's and a demo recorded in mid-later 2000's. The sound recording technology is much more advanced nowadays.
