Thorny Wreath - Behind the Gates demo 1994

Thorny Wreath - Behind the Gates demo 1994
Fog from the Swamp
2) Blood the Ambrosia
3) Arcane Arcanum
4) Cauldron
Howling Wolves of Winter (Bonus track - project of T.W. members)


Ok, here's the black (death) metal predecessor to Frozen Tear. This is the only proper demo the youngsters recorded, besides the 1993 rehearsal tapes spread only to few people. I got a flyer for the demo from some random UG person (can't remember everything, can I?) and decided to go ahead and order it. As was quite typical for Finnish black metal demos of the time, the style is mixed with death metal influences and the recording is of a little rough quality. The recording's quality also differs a bit on sides A (tracks 1-3) and B (4 and the bonus track), not sure if it's just my tape or all of them. It's listenable quality however. The Elivagar featured on the bonus track seems to have been a one-off side project of Tommi & Miikka and sounds a little more influenced by Norwegian bm than the main band. An ok download for Finnish UG-enthusiasts and encyclopedic demo collectors. I'll probably upload the rehearsal/demo one of my traders recorded me later.

A bad timing to ask for reuploads as I was away for midsummer but it's done now. It's an old rip and I'm not 100% happy with it but not unhappy enough to dig up the tape and do it again.
