Reviews about Samhain - Initium (2):
Dream
Is the original recording the source, or is the source the version that Glenn overdubbed for the Box Set release?
Malara
This bootleg is from around 2004. I've bought it at the time with the Final Descent bootleg on Argon Music. Probably from Europe. I doubt they kept pressing it after this date.
