More Apollyon courtesy of Chris, see the previous posts for further details, this is a rehearsal tape with three songs recorded at different times, judging from how they sound. Less than surprisingly no cover for this one.

First song appeared later, re-recorded (UPDATE: Nope, I was informed it's exactly the same version - thanks!), on the FMP compilation "A Tribute to Hell" and it's a lengthy track with somewhat gothic sounding touches. Well, it's mostly the keyboards, but it still evokes a kind of "My Dying Bride meets mid-era Obtained Enslavement mixed with black metal" -vibe. This one has a rather clean sound. The next two tracks don't. On the contrary, they sound like they were recorded in a bucket placed in a cabinet two doors down from where they microphone was left. Maybe not that bad really but the contrast is somewhat jarring. Everything is audible enough despite the murkiness. "Troldeskovens Aander" makes another appearance, again a little shorter than the previous incarnation. Recommended for Apollyon fans and the lo-fi lovers among the congregation.

I thought this was the chick with Prince in the Purple Rain movie. I'm confused.

Certainly, thou must jest.

Though the movie is classic enough to divide again the grain :D.

Yes, bad joke. The drummer seems to be playing a different tune from the rest of instruments here sometimes. I dig cross rhythms and stuff though, so what the hey. Thanks for the post.
