Newly released in 2014: Early CoE / Telepathic Last Show! This set of recordings represents the final chapter in the C.o.E. discography. Digitally transferred from the original cassette sources, "EARLY C.O.E." contains the band's very first demos, from before the first album. It contains several previously unreleased songs, such as "Skin Ritual", "Islands Of Sanity", and "Burning Tree," along with early versions of "Ptah!" and "Sins Of The Fathers". "TELEPATHIC LAST SHOW" contains the songs from the first half of the final show, which were missing from the 2004 live album "Phone Calls From The Dead". The second half of "Telepathic Last Show" contains the second half of the "INITIATION" record release party from 1994. It features live versions of songs such as "Under The Skies", "New Maps" "Running Man" and "Breed". It also contains the band's final, live in the studio jam, "Covered In Thorns". Together these two new releases represent the first and final moments of the band's decade-long career. They ship with two matching 11x17 posters, printed on 100lb stock. There are presently only 100 copies of this set available. They were all produced, designed, printed, burned, assembled, signed, and shipped with a personal thank you from the guitarist, Mike G!

Released in 2008 and still available: The Initiation Demos!
For fans only: these demos were produced by the band themselves before going into the studio with David Castell to properly record their end-times vision of the future, "Initiation." All tracks were recorded on an a Tascam 238 8-track cassette machine. Because of this, the sound quality is a bit thinner than the actual album. But the arrangements of many of the songs are quite different than what appeared later. Some of the tracks are just initial impressions that never got developed further, but are included to give friends the fullest picture of what the band was reaching for at the time of writing. The Initiation Demos is a two-disc set, packaged in a biodegradable dual-disc Amaray DVD case. The only way you can order this release is directly from the band!
