My recent posts have been a little on the mellow side, don't you think? Well, that is remedied now, here is Dawn of Azazel from NZ with their second demo but wait, that's not all! Brother Fenrirsson sent me a rip of the full recording session, including four additional, unreleased tracks. Thank you as always! Two of those are cover tracks, one is a re-recording from debut demo and last one unreleased until it was recorded again for the debut album. The Sarcófago cover includes guest vocals from members of Skuldom and Max of Coven (later in Abominator). Tracks 4 and 8 re-appear on "Bloodforged Abdication" EP but again as different versions. Cover scans enclosed.
Musically this is quite brutal, militant and technical metal of death in the vein of Order From Chaos / Conqueror / Immolation while the first demo (apparently, I've yet to hear it) was more Blasphemy-influenced rumbling. Well, two of the demo proper tracks and one of the unreleased ones are re-recordings from the 1999 demo but I suppose they sound a little different this time around. Fenrirsson's rip was made from the master .wav files he got years ago from the band so the quality is very good. The full session runs at pretty much album length at almost 35 minutes. So if you're into warlike death/black metal check this out and if you're already a convert the extra content should be worth your while.
