Here's some wicked jetblack metal from Barathrum; "Sanctus Satanas" studio session of 1993 was originally meant to be the third Barathrum demo but for some reason I've probably heard and forgotten, Demonos Sova just took the last three songs and intro and released them as "Sanctissime Colere Satanas" promo 1993. The whole session, with the notorious gig in Kuopio in 1993 on the B-side, was released on a cassette by Sova in 1995 as the first release of his cassette "label" Pit Rex (the second release was the "Devilry" promo and I think that's also the last release). I got the tape from him when it was released, around the same time Nazgul's Eyrie put out the debut album "Hailstorm" if I recall correctly.

This is a very raw sounding and extremely ritualistic black metal recording. All of the songs have been re-recorded on Barathrum albums, but here they are presented in their vilest form. The live recording sounds clear enough and certainly no less ritualistic, due to the unusual set up: Sova provides the percussion with a single drum beaten with bones while spewing out the vocals. Very recommended!
