About the covers of the Soul Reaver themes

Between The Zones was created in 2005 as a solo project.
At the time, I wanted to make some industrial/ambient songs, with some rock elements and structures. The main reason why I wanted to explore these music styles was my love for the "Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver" soundtrack, composed by Kurt Harland from The Information Society, which still is a complete masterpiece to my ears.

My love for this soundtrack led me to record two covers, available today on the "Enter Slack" LP. As BTZ wasn't a real band in 2006, I've decided to film myself playing these two songs, with bass and drums provided by my computer... I wanted to share it with the Legacy of Kain online community (I'm know under the nicknames Slack and R@ziel on the Nosgoth-fr board).

These two videos are still online, on my Youtube account:
- Wasteland Midrashim (Cover song for "Ozar Midrashim 1.1" - Soul Reaver theme)
- Forgotten Lament (Cover song for "Ariel's Lament" - Soul Reaver 2 theme)

Lots of people who were enjoying these covers have been asking for guitar/bass tabs.
I've finally decided to put it online, so there it is, in gp4 format (you need the Guitarpro software to read the files)

Today, Between The Zones is a band.
We are playing songs that are quite different from what the project was at its creation, but I'm happy about it because things need to evolve! As a consequence, we haven't planned to play these covers live, but who knows?
Take care of yourself, everyone, and always keep your passions alive ;)
