For today I decided to post some German black metal after a long break from that stuff, here's the third demo by Gorbalrog who played melodic sort of black metal and released an album in 1999. I know there have been at least two different rips around before but my extra sloppy and very quick search didn't yield any active links so I decided to post my rip. Which is again made from a dubbed copy I'm afraid and cover image is another less-than-stellar one from M.A. - a proper scan would be nice.
This demo has a rather raw yet still listenable enough sound which makes the melodic nature less obvious and gives the recording needed edge to keep it just out of the too-mellow field of synth-driven blackish metal so common back then. Nothing really amazing, just a pretty solid 30 min+ demo. Though I admit they tend to trip over their feet during the fastest passages which the sound helps further to mess up and the drum machine might annoy people who are annoyed by drum machines. So yeah... recommended mostly for people into German 90's bm demos and others into older demo sound might enjoy it too. That is all for now.
