Christian Death - Meerhaus, Bern, Switzerland - 25.10.1986 (Flac)
You can still get the MP3 version here: http://swisstapes.blogspot.pt/search/label/Christian%20Death
Original Info File:
This is a hell of a recording (believe me!) and yet another example of a rare clarity in sound, one that I love for the listening pleasure alone and you too might like it, even if you are (like me) not one of Valor's biggest fans. Unlike later recordings of "Valor Christian Death", this indeed still carries the true goth spirit inherent in the early era of the band and a good portion of the tracks stem from "Catastrophe Ballet", "Ashes" and the still great "Atrocities" album.
This show is brought to you thanks to Swiss Tapes (http://swisstapes.blogspot.com/2010/06/christian-death-meerhaus-bern.html), who not only taped it but also posted it in a 24/44.1 FLAC version in his blog, which simply is priceless. BUT thanks also go to Dime member Creatured who, by posting a Rollins Band show from the same taper (http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=322296), was my guide to Swiss Tapes blog, which in return led me to download the Christian Death show, love it, track it, edit it and ultimately post it here.
I wouldn't be surprised if this were a yet uncirculated recording.
I need expert help with some of the track titles, that I couldn't find on the early albums that I have.
