Fear of God fans alike will know that it's fiendishly difficult to get your hands on rare live material, or even demos. Below is a list of stuff that is available, to my knowledge.

FEAR OF GOD

 

Demo, year unknown: audio tape (probably second generation), 10 minutes, karsmakers
This is a demo with Mike, featuring "Diseased" and "All that Remains". Some of the riffs are different, and "All that Remains" starts off like it did on later live performances, not slowly like on "Within the Veil". This is the demo that got the band signed to Warner Brothers. The date is probably 1989, 1990, but I am quite uncertain as to which demo mentioned in the discography this is.

Washington Square, Miami, Florida, US (20 June 1991): audio tape, 15 minutes, good quality (I'd say 8 out of 10), Play or Download
Set list "All that Remains", "Love's Death", "Diseased", "Red to Grey" (cut off in the middle). A longer version of this exists as well, featuring the extra tracks "Emily", "Wasted Time", "Betrayed" and "Drift". Quality of that longer one is abysmal. I don't have it myself.

Country Club, Reseda, California, US (June 1991): audio tape, 36 minutes, Play or Download
This is a pretty bad recording, with quite a bit of flutter (i.e. it seems the tape runs faster and then normal again in sections). In the following set list, the number behind the tracks indicates the number of irritating flutter instances: "All that Remains" (2), "Love's Death" (0), "Diseased" (0), "Red to Grey" (0), "Betrayed" (4), "Coming Down" (0), "Drift" (0). As you see, this tape might be interesting anyway because it's got the non-album track "Coming Down" on it!

Rehearsal '91 (late 1991): audio tape, 20 minutes, Play or Download
This is a rehearsal that includes only tracks that were intended to end up on the "Beyond the Veil" album that, in the end, was never released. These are not the actual studio recordings of full band without Dawn, rather they're rehearsals with Dawn. Track listing: Unknown track, "Suffering Baby", "Hands in the Dark" (two takes), "One Nation Under Spell" and "The Curse". "The Curse" is cut before it ends. Apparently this is a flaw on the master tape.

Alcatraz, Gent, Belgium (4 april 1992): audio tape (OK recording, side switch during "Drift", includes soundcheck), 50 minutes, Play or Download

Aardschokdag, Rijnhal, Arnhem, Netherlands (April 1992): audio tape, radio recording (perfect, first generation), 30 minutes, Play or Download

Demo '92, ? 1992: audio tape (probably second generation), 14 minutes, Play or Download
The difference between this demo and the one below is that it's got Douglas Sylvia on drums, instead of John Grden. It's a different recording.
