Darkstorm - The Past Forgotten CassEP 1995

Darkstorm (pol) - The Past Forgotten Cassette EP 1995
Nocturnal Seeds
2) Of the Old Ones
3) Chains and Leather (Running Wild cover)


Time to post black metal again and once more some Polish material. This cassette EP (well, that's how the trader who dubbed me this labeled it) was the band's third release and yes, the first two tracks were released on the 2008 version of "The Black Stone" CD which you might have. But the third one wasn't so I thought I'd upload this. If you like this, check out the CD. Cover image courtesy of Metal Archives.

It's not the best possible quality dub as the tape is a little worn but very listenable still... if you're a seasoned reader of this blog I presume you're used to less than stellar sound quality. Though the recording itself has a pretty good yet unpolished (heh) and rough demo sound. It's raw black metal with the Polish 90's sound which you either love or hate I suppose. The musicianship is kind of sloppy but in a way it adds to the charm. Recommended for fans of Polish bm, especially of the more radical bands.

I remember the demo/promo?something like The Forest of Magic Rain, I heard a few copies from different sources it had the beginning of Blackened from Metallica on it by accident.

Velkaarn, do you by any chance have the Numinous (fin) - The Enormity Of Evil Divine demo 2003?

Velkaarn kirjoitti...

Sorry don't have the Numinous demo, I wasn't buying much demos around the time it was released. Looks interesting though.

I'll see if I can find it.

The original "Forest of Magic Rain" demo was copied over pro-produced cassettes (cheap bastards) and there was some wear through when they are dubbed over. Same goes for the Tears of Evil demo - both released by Dagon Records (Poland).

Thanks for the info! Yeah I've encountered similar things with some demos I ordered in the old days - the mobile phone disturbance on the Siver demo for example. Pretty annoying in all forms.

Even more common these days - cellphone disturbance through amps on rehearsals. Classic.
