Reuploaded - another rip
This is posted on request. I know there's at least one other version around, but after testing I'd venture to say the rip I uploaded is slightly superior.
Bethel was a short-lived Finnish band playing melodic black/dark metal or as they called it "Supreme Nordic Metal" - epic and melodic tunes, not very "black" but atmospheric and dark. The demo, recorded in Studio Perkele, has a very good sound and the musicianship is competent too. The clean vocals make me wince a little bit, but they tend to do that to me more often than not. After Bethel split up, the vocalist/drummer Sir Holm went on to form a band called Carnival Diablo which quickly evolved into Devilry. Devilry's warlike death metal and Bethel's atmospheric nordic metal sounds have very little in common, however both are worth checking out. Enjoy the demo!
