Nergal (gre) - Live in Next Club, Athens Greece 7th May 1994
1) Track I
2) Track II
3) Track III
4) Track IV
Today's item is something I need help with. One of my traders back in the day dubbed me this recording which is supposed to be the Greek Nergal playing live (probably) in Greece at either 7th May or 5th July - not 100% certain about that either. (Research & comment confirmed it was May). No tracklisting but it's four tracks. I'm not really familiar enough with the old Nergal material to identify them... though they had recorded so far something like four tracks plus intros and whatever was on that 1991 demo Metal Archives mentions, so this ought be most of them and despite lasting only about 14 minutes might be their full set... it seems to start with the first track already in progress so I think it is missing something. As you should be able to guess that up there's not a real cover.
So I'd appreciate if I could get following things:
A) confirm it actually is Nergal (though it does sound awful lot like them) - Done, it is Nergal, playing with Rotting Christ and Samael
B) confirm the date and venue - Did research, confirmed venue, reuploaded with corrected date, confirmed by an eyewitness source too
C) last but certainly not least, tracklisting
The recording itself has a very decent sound, it's clear and you can clearly make out all the instruments. Music is mostly quite slow definitely Greek style black metal with emphasis on atmosphere and abundant synth presence. Vocals are a combination of harsh black metal growls, clear half-spoken ones and whispers. The third track is almost fully instrumental and basically just percussion and synths, quite ritualistic and sounds actually more than a little improvised. This is probably an audience recording, there's some babbling in what might be Greek but as I'm by no means an expert it could just as well be Portuguese as it's not that loud or clear and the person recording seems to have enough sense to shut the hell up. It's quite good if you like old, atmospheric Southern style black metal and even better if I get the info I need!
PS: After my research I would like to get the rest of the event as well, that is Rotting Christ's and Samael's sets. RC should be about 30 minutes. Let me know if you got them!
