Thus Defiled - Blasphemous Coven demo 1993

Thus Defiled - Blasphemous Coven demo I 1993
1) Intro
2) Invocation
3) Desolation of Twilight
4) Ascend...


Here's something I very seldom do, a repost of something from another blog, this is the first Thus Defiled demo ripped by Matt Witchclan and originally posted on The Woodman's Axe here. As it seems Matt's not active at the moment I thought I'd help comrade Ruptured Souls out and post the demo here. So thanks to Witchclan again for the original rip and cover scan!

Thus Defiled, name taken from a line in Venom lyrics, started by playing a mixture of death and black metal before evolving to a more black metal oriented sound on second album or so, I'll check that later and edit this. This demo consist of a very long intro (over 6 minutes of the little less than 17 min playing time!) and three tracks of mostly quite brutal black/death metal but it does have some breaks and tempo changes too so it's not just all in your face. The rip is good but the sound volume could be a bit higher. Well, check it out if you like their other material and/or old schoolish black(/death) metal.

The intro is definitely the draw for me here. Not to go all Pink Floyd on anyone, but it's great headphone listening.

I rarely dig the hammering-a-roof-on-a-garden-shed drum style that crops up in the other two songs, but I rather like it here. Thanks for the post.

You're welcome and I agree with you in that there are a bunch of albums and recordings where the intro is my favourite track! Even if the "proper" tracks might be good, to drop just two examples: Summoning - Lugburz and Ancient Rites - Diabolic Serenades.

If you say Summoning one more time Velkaarn...

It's highly likely, y'know that by now! ;)
