15. For a while
Released by GMM Records on cd in 2005 and then later re-issued on picture LP by Randale Records in 2007 (the version i have).
A true showing how much i view records as collectors items more than something to listen to is that i didnt understand i had the wrong songlist to this record untill a week ago. Yet i have owned the LP for some years now. I remember downloading the record online and then later buying it on LP. The version i downloaded had 15 songs on it and i thought that was the correct
tracklisting but then i checked the LP that had been collecting dust and realised that it only had 12 tracks.
Anyway i upload the extra songs i thought was on it since this has always been Outremer for me.
History facts for underground nerds:
Outremer is old French and means "Overseas". This was the common name that was given to the crusader states around Jerusalem. Basicly anything that wasnt on the border to France was called Outremer. For instance the French king Louis IV was called "Louis d'Outremer because he was born in England.
The album consists of songs recorded from 1999 to 2003 and has a nice mixed sound. Sure it might lack some of the old raw and brutal sound but asking a band to sound the same after more than 10 years active is just stupid. A well played and mature sound basicly.
I feel comfortable when listening to the album and checking through the sleevephotos. Not only do i see familuar faces from my own country and some known faces from UK but the whole feeling on the record feels much like a dedication to the bands friends and "fanbase".
Sure some songs are utter garbage (Alone in a crowd and A friend) but Templars post-Y2K sound is something that grows on you the more you listen to it.
The three extra songs i added (and always believed was on the album) are all top songs to with the Swedish-friendly flirt on Dawns early light and the English traslated version of the old classic Swedish Agent Bulldogg song Livsstil.
No matter if they play aggropunk like before (Violence etc) or the later Rolling Stones/The who inspired mod-rock they always seem to do it well enough to keep me as a loyal fanatic.
This is as far as i go in the Templars discography for now but will post some later albums in the future. (33 Templars posts.. damn)
