Sacrilegeous - Nordic Landscapes of Hessdalen EP 1996

Sacrilegeous - Nordic Landscapes of Hessdalen CDEP 1996
1) Hessdalen
2) Message from Another Dimension
3) V / Mystery of Iniquity
4) Dreamlands
5) T.F.A (Bonus track)


It's Friday and to provide soundtrack to the crazy partying of the Coven's flock I give you more Sacrilegeous! Rejoice! This one comes from my own stock again and it is the only CD release from 1996, self-released by Necrodesecrator from whom I got my copy as late as a few years ago. Cover scan is included.

Ok, by now some of you must be worried "a CD release by Sacrilegeous, surely it has to be ruined by overproduction and be totally commercial and sell out and woe is me" but cast aside your doubts and trouble, it is still the same ol' stuff we love and cherish. Sure, the production is slightly cleaner and maybe the song writing isn't as extreme as before but one look at the cover art should have already told you this is still very much in DIY-spirit, uncommercial and underground. The songs are longer than on the old releases and a bit less random. Vocals are the same and general instrumentation too. But enough text, some of us have to work even if it is Friday, download this if you enjoyed the previous items and if you didn't, listen to this anyways and keep on hating!

Thanks old friend, I looked for this for years!

Yes! I was hoping you'd post this. I think you mentioned it in another post or something. That TFA track is killer.

The vaguely soundtrack like music pretty well fits the National Geographic like album title. Neither dig it nor hate it. Interesting non-BM blue color palette used on the cover art (probably not the greatest endorsement the band would wish, but what the hey).

Well gentlemen, it pleases me to see the enthusiastic response to this!

You're welcome and if you really need a copy JP aka Necrodesecrator might still have some left.

Of course I posted it, I try to keep my promises but it tends to take some time! I still need to figure out what to do with brother Grev's sending so this is not all yet.

Vaguely soundtrack like is actually a good description here! Personally I really like the crude and usually odd covers these releases have, the colour choice is really quite unique. Don't you agree this is a bit tame compared to the wilder old stuff?

I share your appreciation for odd and crude cover artwork. It usually bodes well for the music inside when the band has a different vision besides the "spidery logo hovering above the bleak forest" routine. I really do like the weird blue hues on the cover of this release. And I actually like the music more than I probably made it appear.

Could you please re-up this and the'95 demo? Very curious to how this sounds after the SE demo.

Must apologize to you for slow reply too, I've been preoccupied. Right, I'll upload this and the odd-title '95 demo ASAP. Be sure to check out the Alastaro über Alles "compilation" too for more (LOADS more) related material.
