WORLD PREMIERE OF THE "TERRIBLE SCREAM ('88 DEMO VERSION)" ON THE REDLIGHTRADIO   (24.1.2013)
The TRIAL published another specialty from their archive. Original demoversion of the song "Terrible Scream", which in its studio version (album Pictures - 1991) became a popular catch of pirate compilations worldwide. Some fans soon discovered that the video for this song, which can be seen on the group's website, contains a different version of the recording and began to crave it. The TRIAL finally agreed with publishing, but only through the Redlightradio.net in the "Neon Decay" show, so at 5:00 PM in January 23, 2013, had this record its world premiere. Twenty-five years after its origin.
Here's announcements on the show: „ …. Neon Decay (5-6pm) will be playing an unreleased version of The Trial's Terrible Scream ('88 demo version), first time to be heard! Also: [...]“

"THE TRIAL - ECHOES OF LOVE" (DEMO LP - 1989)   PREMIERE  (28.9.2011)
At the request of fans The TRIAL decided to uncover the original demos of their new-beat project from the year 1989. The essential production of the band featured melodic synthpop (complete discography in MP3 is here). But in 1989 The Trial decided to explore also this specific area of the electronic music. These are the demos of new-beat album called Echoes of Love, created in the home studio 22 years ago. The album was never implemented. But based on this the new song Sex Story (1990) was produced, which made fairly succesfull   B-side of the band's first single (SP). Moreover two songs from the album Echoes of Love were made as the video clips in 2009 (here below in the "News" chapter). This excursion from the main creative direction of The TRIAL has a special, non-specifiable meaning and atmosphere for the band itself.

"THE TRIAL - PICTURES" ON NEW YORK DJ's BLOG   (7.7.2011)

You may be familiar with this band via the Crispy Nuggets VA compilations, one which featured a loose track from this LP and another the b-side off the band's debut 7''. I've been playing this LP out a lot lately at the Wierd party, so for those who have been asking about this one, here it is!
Released in 1991, here we have the debut LP from The Trial, a six piece (!) Czechoslovakian synth band. Fans of the heavy synthpop sound of the late 80s (Depeche Mode, Camouflage, Xymox's "Obsession") should find lots and lots to love on this LP. A few of the songs haven't aged so well, but the majority of this LP (especially side B) is phenomenal and I can't stop listening to it. Don't take my word for it though, see for yourself!
If you'd like to read more about the band, click HERE for a page run by a devoted fan. Unfortunately, the main history of the band has yet to be translated to English, but still plenty of info to be had. Be sure to click here to check a few video clips of the band, all three which hail from the band's pre-LP era. Lots of photos here!

BRAND NEW VIDEO (26.7.2009)
This year, the second and probably the last videoclip of "The TRIAL" - "Pull It Back" created again MaxOne. The clip and the ReEdit have been created this spring, and also builds on unpublished project "Echoes of Love". Members are playing in the clip, so they had been forced to meet and work together again. Speculation that this musical & visual teleportation will affect the restart of the band is spurious, but not impossible. So we will see.

OFFICIAL LAUNCH OF WEBSITE  (22.2.2008)

These webpages about The TRIAL were officially launched on Friday 22.2.2008. Perhaps wishing of fans looking for information about this band are fulfilled.


The TRIAL is the name of music band, which existed in 1989-1993. The band was found in Beroun (small town near Prague - capital of Czech Republic / Czechoslovakia at that time) from where their music spread throught the recordings, concerts and other media to Prague and not long after then over the whole Czechoslovakia. A musical genre of The TRIAL was called technopop (or also synthpop). The band itself espoused to the legacy of electronic pop scene of the 80s. Emphasis of their work lied in working in studio and sound experimenting.

The TRIAL released under its name two singles and two albums. Three videoclips for TV were also made. Concerts were not left aside, too. The TRIAL prepared during its existence two individual concert programs, which secured the band a needful contact with their fans. As the top of the success became the encouragement from legendary british DJ and music journalist of BBC - John Peel, which personally invited the band to England (to visit him in his house and stay there for few days) and played songs of The TRIAL on the BBC Radio One and Radio Luxembourg.
