Ok, Brazil as promised and since I'm off to Turku this weekend to witness the Turku Saatanalle IV-event I wanted to do a live tape for change. Goat Emperor were a black metal band with touches of death metal audible in their style which they called "Bestial Music" on their second demo, 1995's "Announcing the Neo-Aeon", dedicated to Mauro Cunha, Marcelo Motta and Aleister Crowley. Their first demo was released in '93 and called "Apopantos Kakodaimonos", featuring five proper tracks and intros/interludes. I got this and a good dub of the first demo from brother A.S. along with some other more or less exotic items the other year, thanks again! I'll need to rip the demo again, wonder if I should post it here too? There is a decent rip around so it does not seem very necessary. But back to this, good sound and I recall this was dubbed from a video. Of course no cover, I just ended up making another half-assed placeholder with the logo from the '95 demo. It'd make a nice shirt.

It's not a very long gig, possibly not complete either and whoever shot the video originally (perhaps an associate of the band?) edited it a bit so there's less of the usual breaks between. Four of the six songs are from the debut demo, Theorems appeared on the second and I don't know about the second track, could it be an unrecorded one or just re-titled? Since there are no intros, outros and interludes the songs are slightly more compact than usually. I said earlier the sound is good, but it does get a bit messy from time to time. That's only extra brutality, right? I would like a better rip of the second demo (or an actual physical copy) as the one I found online has this distracting, piercing hiss usually present back in the day on badly dubbed tapes. Of course it's possible they botched up and they're all like that, would like a confirmation if that's the case. - UPDATE: I discovered I actually have a very good dub of the second demo too, and Fenrirsson has also provided me with a rip/remix of his copy so it is no longer needed! - Ok, let's wrap this up, recommeded for people into more bestial, old schoolish sort of black metal and connoisseurs of the South American scene.

I have an original of "Announcing the Neo-Aeon" if you need a proper rip (not that I'd dabble in that type of thing), just need to clear some HD space.

Yes, that would be great. But do check first if it has the noise or not!

This is great!

I've just posted the first of two demos by Sputum Lunae, which I think will be right up your street. If you like it, i'm happy to send you the other and let you post it on here.

The occasionally messy sound adds some listening enjoyment to the chaotic proceedings, to my ear. Sounds like a pretty small venue and the recording puts the listener right in the fray. Thanks for the post to A.S. and our tireless host.

Thanks for the recommendation, I'd better check that out ASAP!


Not quite as tireless as it might seem, the longer than expected absence being due influenza I picked up once again proves the disgusting frailty of mortals, this vessel no exception. Glad to read you enjoyed this and it seems quite an intimate venue as you pointed out!

Thnak you! Maybe do you have Mystical Fire band demo's from Brazil?

I know Mystical Fire by name but don't have anything. Should probably check with my South American experts if they happen to have.
