Also known as "The Broadmoor Demo."
All Songs Recorded and Mixed at Broadmoor Recording, Huntington, WV.
In 2003, Byzantine signed a one album deal with a small label out of NY, DK Entertainment. It was for European distribution only.10 songs were recorded (the last 2 songs on the album are taken from the original 2001/2002 demo recordings). 50 advanced copies were sent to the band, but the album was never released due to funding issues from the label. A year later, in 2004, the band signed to Prosthetic Records
and the songs were re-recorded. They were released on "The Fundamental Component".
In 2009, Crash Music, Inc.
released this demo officially with new artwork (right). No one from DK Entertainment or Crash Music informed the the band of the re-issue, and thus were never given permission by the band to sell the CD. Byzantine, only learning about the re-issue a few days before it release, released the album for digital download with the original artwork (left), to combat the sale of the album, and the royalties that the two record labels would receive from the band's work. After a couple weeks of private litigation between the band and Crash Music, Byzantine received the royalties they deserved from weeks of sales, and continue to do so.
