I am now posting, after several requests, the last demo of the French pagan black metallers Prophecy. You may remember the previous post even if it was a while ago. I've hesitated with posting this one ever since I got this tape last summer or so, as the tape I have, supposedly original, has a really poor sound. I bought this and a bunch of other old tapes from a guy and I'm suspecting he's sent me a less than original demo here. The cover enclosed was a rather shoddy xerox, which may actually be the case with the demo they spread around.

The bad sound manifests mainly on low level volume which leans strongly to the right speaker. If not for that, it'd be actually quite clear. The music itself shows more a natural development from their previous demo than the genre-hopping the band had earlier engaged in. Intro, four tracks and an outro that clips, the proper tracks are quite long, between 6½ and 8+ minutes. As expected, they focus more on the atmospheres than aggression in their mostly slow to midpaced speed, though fast and furious parts are added as spice. Keyboards and sound effects help build the moods and the songwriting would seem to have improved quite a bit from "Gorsedd" and everything in general is better. Performance and taste are both superior comparing to the previous effort. So, recommended if you liked their previous demo. Celtic/Gaelic heathens and pagan bm enthusiasts take notice also.

Great! Thanks Velkaarn. As I told you in the comment section of the other demo, I wanted to listen to the rest of this band's output. Let's see how bad the sound is...

I hope you enjoy it even if the sound could be better! The Bethlehem rehearsal had a good sound. I like rehearsal tapes.

Pleased to read you're enjoying it! If we don't count the sound, it's much better than "Gorsedd" in my opinion too.
