17 Dec 2021 Archaïa – 1976, La Bande Perdue (2LP)
For the first time after 45 years Mutant Embryo Records is proud to announce the release of Archaïa’s 1976 LOST TAPE!! Band’s first ever recordings which meant to be the precursor of their legendary ‘Archaïa’ 1977 debut LP.
Played & recorded by the initial members Michel Munier & Pierrick Le Bras, on Revox R-t-R recorder, long before Philippe Bersan’s arrival, this tape provides a sacramental & ritual aspect Archaïa’s duet expressed at the time! The absolute environment of primitive paganism, rite & worship!
Rumor has it, the tape was sold on a flea market by Pierrick for unknown reasons…However, no matter what rumors say, Mutant Embryo Records is thrilled to have unburied this tape for the first time after almost half a century!!!
Engineered & mastered by Spiros Rouchotas at Kosmic Studio.
Lacquer cut, superb dynamics, analog sound playing loud!
