Thine, from West Yorkshire UK, first formed in 1993 as Blood of Thine but it wasn’t until 1996 (& a name-change to just Thine), that the band decided to record their first studio demo. This took place at ACADEMY STUDIOS (Paradise Lost, Anathema, My Dying Bride, etc). This ‘Journeys’ tape was released in 1997 & was a work of atmospheric/folk-tinged metal. At this time a second demo (‘Blue Tape’) had already been recorded, in order to look for a suitable record deal. Recording took place again at ACADEMY STUDIOS & the tracks were more dark & brooding atmospheric metal compositions.
