This month is coming to an end soon and this has been a slow period for the Coven. Next month should be more active again. Anyways, today's post is death metal for change and a rather random choice which I asked brother Grev to dub for me. Thanks bro! Picking a demo based on its name and being vague enough not to be recognized brings back memories for sure. No covers as Grev had a dub too so a Metal Archives image was used.

The content is quite simple and direct old fashioned death metal, no frills stuff. Sound is a bit on the poor side as it sounds like it was recorded in a barrel or something though this probably is partially due this being ripped from a dub of unknown generation. The vocals bellow on top of everything else. After a while you either get used to the sound and it doesn't bother you anymore, you might actually enjoy the cavernous, subterranean feel or you've had enough and put something else on. Nothing new really here but if you like your death metal barbaric, crude and lo-fi you might want to check this out.

Ah, classic bumblebee guitar! And exactly how many mattresses did they place between the amplifiers and the recording microphones to get that superbly muffled sound? 1994 indeed.

Yeah, this is actually more enjoyable than I make it seem on the post, noticed after a few listens. And I know, it sounds almost like they were playing in one room while the vocalist and mic were in the next!
