“Hard Times” blows out thirty candles!

Exactly thirty years ago on this date, Pro Patria recorded the first demo of “Hard Times”, the track that would become their most popular song to date. “Hard Times” became the signature track of the band’s first official demo (Spasmaticae) in 1993 and an updated version was also published on the second demo (Militaria) in 1994. Eventually Pro Patria recorded the final version in 1996 for their debut album “Quod Erat Demonstrandum”.

It is less known that there exists a unique version from 1998 with… a female co-singer!
