Demonlord - Unsacred Soul demo 2000

Demonlord (spa) - Unsacred Soul demo 2000
2) Sinister Queen of the Forest
3) Rapture of the Ancient Times
4) A New Age Comes
5) Mankind's Decay
6) Under a Serpent Sun (At The Gates cover)


Another Spanish black metal demo, this one was released first as a CDr and then two cassette editions, later of which had a bonus track. My rip is of the CDr-version which probably does not differ from the first tape edition, the cover of which is seen above. I didn't have a proper copy of the CDr, with cover art I mean, so I used the tape cover. The band later changed their name to Daemonlord and has released some albums and EPs under that name, most recent album actually just this year.

I'm not familiar with their later material so I'm not going to make any comparisons to that. All the proper tracks on this demo are quite short, coming to an average duration of little less than three minutes. As you might guess, the music is fast and in your face, still quite melodic with the occasional background synths. They use two vocals, of which one is a little deeper than the slightly drier croak of the other. There's no human drummer and the machine is quite obviously that. It would sound better with a real drummer, or if the drumsound was different but it's not bad enough to ruin it. Kind of reminds me of some old Greek bands. I didn't much care for this when I first heard it but now after a few years (well, 11) it sounds better than I remembered. Give it a shot, at least it's not sugary and fluffy! I think I should check out their later releases.

Super awesome blog... Hey, I have a copy of the Red Planet (aka Fenriz' Red Planet) from years ago... All the original tracks (though I forget if there's 3 or 4 because it's been over 10 years since I listened to it). The version that has been released on CD has been edited - eg some of the vocal parts have been removed... Let me know if you want it, and I'll rip of good version for ya... email me at

Hey Velkaarn: Thanks for all the uploads, as always. I wanted to tell you that I've got my hands on an original copy of Frozen Souls' ep. I'd tried to rip it and had some issues (software problems, nothing serious. The program just decided to close when I finished ripping, without saving the files), and I've been too busy lately, but I'll be ripping it soon and post it in yappy's blogs. I'll leave you a message here when I'm done. But I have to warn you: do not expect to listen to some German Black Metal. They actually play Death Metal (at least in this ep). I guess the person that submitted the band in metal-archives knew about the existence of the band just through flyers and thought it was a black metal band. Anyway, I haven't heard the demo, so maybe they played black metal on that one, though I doubt it.

Thanks in advance, I'll send you mail over the weekend!


That's great news! Thanks in advance, I'll want it whatever they play. Hmm, I think I actually read somewhere they would be more death metal than black, now that you mentioned it. I have no idea if that's true for the demo as well.
