Another contribution and a thing I had been after for quite long, this is the fourth and final Fulgor demo, a two-man project already familiar to the Coven. Hmm, with Yappy's blog gone, I wonder if I should post Misfits' rip of the EP here too? But we weren't supposed to talk about that, focus, this rip was sent already early last year but I took my sweet time to get posting as I was hoping for a bit larger cover scan. But we'll make do with the tiny image, thanks anyways to the sender. If anyone can contribute a larger, more clear image would appreciate it. Also, did it have lyrics on the back?

Like "To Be One with the Stars..." this is a long demo, filling up a side of the ol' 90-min tape (with room for an obscure filler track, maybe I should post such next) and giving several albums a run for their money. In duration, obviously, not sound which is decent enough and clear. Musically this is, obviously, between the '93 tapes and the "Eyequinox" EP though nowhere near as trippy as that was. Tempo is most of the time leisurely slow to almost brisk midtempo and varying vocal styles are employed, from singsongy croak to so-and-so clean voice to whispers to howls and so forth. Guitars make a pleasant buzz, synths sound appropriately cheap, the programmed percussion is buried in the soft fuzz. Interludes and parts vary from vaguely ambient to the suddenly wave-y The Unation, the longest track I'm the Tears in Your Eyes sounds almost industrial and Lust, Flesh & Force goes all German in the tastefulness department. The demo manages to sound more cohesive than my description might lead you to believe. Not very evil or even that dark to be honest, but there is a special sort of feel to it. With a few edits it'd be great. Recommended for the fans of Fulgor, old Deutsch demos and the bizarre.

Hey Velkaarn! Long time no posting here, but glad to see your are keeping the blog really alive (I check it from time to time), with great posts as always! Feel free to post Fulgor's ep here too, and thanks for posting this one, which I was also looking for.
I remember I promised to burn a tape (like a year ago, or maybe more? I think it was more. I've been working harder. haha) and I haven't done it yet. Sorry about that. I haven't burnt an lp or a tape in a long time now. I'll try to burn that tape soon and contribute with this great blog.

@Misfits:

Hey comrade, good to see you! Yeah time flies does it not? Every damn year seems to go by faster. You know, I should really do the EP, then it would be all but the promo/rehearsal '93. This one was quite elusive but worth the wait.

Hmm, what was it that we had discussed again? Well, whatever it was no hurry you're done when you're done.;)

Seems that no-one has the Promo/Rehearsal of these guys, which is a damned shame. I don't even recall seeing it ever on one of the old tape trading lists! Let me know how good your rip of the EP is, because I can do one for you otherwise.

I have the cover for "10 Urphar..." too, if you want it.

@Fenrirsson:

Yeah, the promo/reh might be tough to dig up. Who knows, someone might show up with it tomorrow or it could be in ten years.

Misfits' 7" rip was good and he provided scans too so that's covered. Would love a cover scan for this one though, maybe when you're doing the other things. Thanks in advance!

@Grev:

Hails brother! Good to read from you and sure, I'll take on your offer, that rehearsal track seems interesting. But, aren't promo 06/93 and "Mystical Black Magic Metal" the same thing? It says "promo 06/93" on the side of the cover and MBMM on the front.
