We stick to the letter "V" and Finnish black metal for one more post, the other day I was contacted by comrade Drowned of old Lockjaw fame and he sent me this obscure demo. He had ripped the tape at the request of an old band member willing to hear it again and this gives us the opportunity to do so as well. Thanks! No covers, or pretty much anything of the sort and not sure if one exists in the first place. UPDATE: A cover does exist as Drowned was asked if he had a copy. So if anyone reading happens to have it, get in touch (as usual)!
Like Drowned warned me in his email, the sound is very raw due this having been recorded on a 4 tracker in their rehearsal room. It's crude, barbaric, murky and filthy. There is background hissy noise present throughout the rip (coming from trying to clean the sound I suppose) and you can barely tell anything apart. Combined with the sluggish pace of the first proper track the effect is wonderfully demented and at times brings old Beherit and from more recent times Ride For Revenge to mind. I don't know really anything about the band apart from what D mentioned so I can't say if they have recorded anything else than this short (less than nine minutes) outburst of blasphemy but if they have I would be very interested to hear it. I can't really recommend this to all the readers but madmen into brutally crude sounding black metal should brave this. Delightfully horrid!
