VA - The Colombian Awakening (compilation 1993)
Compilation tape 1993
Label: Schizophrenia Prods.
Info from http://traumaacheron.blogspot.com :
This is a magnificent compilation tape and is in part the closing chapter of an era when great demos were released, something like our Esperanza Gomez, has an orgasm and then releases a “ahhhh jueputa”.
The tape was almost 90 minutes long, the A side included: ASPID, NEUS, HOLOCAUSTO, ATTACK, AKERRAK, ATHANATOR, I.M.R.I., TENEBRARUM, CRUCIFIXION, AVERNO. And on the B side: CENSURA, ANTAGON, EUTANASIA, SARCASMO, BELIAL, CATALEPTIC, DEGRADEATH, POSGUERRA, BASTARD, CONFUSION.
As you can see, there are bands from all genres and different regions of the country, it wasn’t a professional tape, just a regular tape with a sticker, but I don’t know how they did the master because the sound is excellent except for DEGRADEATH’s song. Some songs even had better sound than in the original demos released by the bands.Continuing with the tape, it is very good, the cover is printed professionally and what made this tape something “special” was that it came with a 20 pages booklet with information and a brief but complete bio of each band. Only 500 copies were released and I believe it has been the fastest selling tape in the history of Colombian tapes, nowadays it is considered a jewel.
