This is the next demo after Time is Running Out for Red Sky (aka Craig Erikson). This one has information and slightly better production (still muddy, though). Also, it seems that Erikson has stepped up the song writing some. This is still neo-classical shred metal, but it seems to take on a bit of a groove that sounds like the California version of Seventh Seal some (the one that signed to Blonde Vinyl). But I believe it is Erickson on vocals. There is also another version of this tape that has mostly a similar look, but a different band logo and front cover. It seems the songs are the same, though:
