Scalprum - Inner God demo 1995

Scalprum - Inner God demo 1995
2) Psycho Monstrosity
3) Refused Grossly
4) Oppressions for the Sheep


Some more death metal from Turkey and a band I don't have covers, logo or band photo either to go with the post! So you have to excuse me the lack of visuals this time. You might have figured out it already, but I'll tell you anyway that this is again another piece of loot from the good old tape trading days. Cover scans/band logo/pretty much anything appreciated.

UPDATE: Apparently the drummer of this band moved to Norway and started a band there, called Ominous Grief. The tracks I took a listen to sound more like melodic dark metal than death metal. I will investigate further. I'm hopefully getting a copy of the Scalprum demo covers soon so keep an eye on this.

UPDATE II: Reuploaded, link above updated. Contains the cover, flyer & pic scans given me. Thanks!

The demo contains four songs of fast & noisy death metal which however has melodic and mid-paced parts as well. It's actually very thrashy at times. You know, screaming Slayeresque leads and all that. Sound quality is ok, a little chaotic perhaps but mostly clear. Audible bass which is nice. Not really that much to add I guess, if you like death metal, deathrash - hell extreme metal in general - you might want to give this obscure demo a listen. It's quite good!

"another piece of loot"
I love to read all those 15 lines you put under every invaluable gem.
Hope could return a bit of your favors pal.

Hi Velkaarn!
Thanks for sharing the demo, the good comments and reminding me the old days. i was the vocalist of that band.
You had asked if some cover art or logo exist, unfortunately i dont have much left about the band except the demo cover and some flyers which i can send you if you give an email adress.
after the band split up, our drummer continued with his band "ominous grief", you may also like it:

Hello and thanks for the link! I've gotten pics of the covers and some flyers too from the vocalist, I'll update them to the blog soon.

Sorry I've no up-to-date lists left, I've a few more demos from Turkey which I'll upload in time so stay tuned. Unfortunately some of them are in my unsorted tapes so it'll take time to come across them and identify them.
