EURIDIUM - MCD / 7" - |1994|
1994, another early highlight in h8000 history, probably even THE highlight that made a change to many. After the release of their super limited demo tape that only insiders had in their possession. CONGRESS recorded ' Euridium', the 7" came on Warehouse records, the label that also brought shortsight, Acme, Blindfold and Nations On Fire.The cd release would be on Goodlife (GLR took over machination a bit later).The intro of 'Lead Astray' always was a winner on the early Congress shows, since this was their opener and many got bruised and beaten in the pit...The other 3 songs on the 7" are truly winning h8000 hit-songs...from that moment on, CONGRESS started touring and played many many shows all over with this great release under their belt... Any self-respecting hardcore kid should have this release in their collection.
On a side note...The strange title 'Euridium' has remain a mystery still...later on, the band would use more strange phrases and words on their releases.

Original CONGRESS 'Euridium' Promo-poster, note the Warehouse address and the distributor for Warehouse was Genet. A promo poster back in the day was just a xerox thing....check also the vinyl sticker that was included inside the sleeve...a true classic! I'm glad I have these treasures in my possession.
