Malitiae - My Inner Blasphemy promo '96

Malitiae - My Inner Blasphemy promo 1996
1) Goathead (Intro)
2) Förintelsens tron
3) Baphometh

links deleted as it wasn't correct item!

More contributions follow, this is Malitiae from Sweden, loved by a few, dreaded by a couple more and unknown to vast majority. Not devotees of the Coven though! This is the second tape, of which Lord Azazel Djinn himself commented: "About the other tapes, the second one was in many ways worse (though completely different), whereas the two following ones were standard black metal." Thanks for the chance to hear it go to my collaborateur, the man who originally ripped and scanned this, monsieur Ronan of Psychopathological zine and my lovely assistant not doing a magic show my collaboratrice, the good sister Borderline who forwarded the rip to me and acquired permission to feature it here. Merci beaucoup! Hvala vam puno!

Ok, enough banter, let's move to business: three songs, first being an intro and two "regular" ones, total a bit under ten minutes. Good sound but unfortunately Ronan has ripped it at slightly too loud volume so it sounds a bit more abrasive and broken than it should. This is fully intrumental and resembles most fellow Swedes Landscape and actually a bit Emglev too, now that I listen to the second song while typing this. This might pass as metal, ambient/black metal of some sort perhaps, if one is feeling generous, with the percussion and all. Third track not so much, it's basically keyboards on the background and piano that is beaten played like percussion on the forefront. At the end of the day I can't agree with the artist's assessment of this being worse of the two early demos. And now I'm really curious to hear how he progressed on the stardard black metal demos III & IV! Not obviously for everyone but much easier to recommend than the first effort.

UPDATE: Lord Azazel Djinn sent me his rip of this promo and it's not the one I got from Borderline who got it from Ronan!!! Almost same running time but different material! It has vocals and sounds more like a continuation of "Azazel" demo, I'll probably upload it here as soon as I get some sort of clearence what the hell the item Ronan had ripped is then, as he had provided scans I wonder if he somehow managed to do wrong side of the tape or what ever else may have occurred. Damn it! Now I wonder if it could be a Conjured to Baphometh recording, also by L.A.D. and in that vein.

UPDATE II: Yup, it's partial Conjured to Baphometh demo, not "My Inner Blasphemy" and links are removed. I will make a repost with Lord A.D.'s sending, stay tuned! And eventually CtB demo too.

Wow heheh! I wasn't expecting this! I'll contact Ronan about this and see what he has to say about it. :)

Heh, neither did I! Did you grab Lord Azazel Djinn's rip already or wanna me to fire it to you via yadi or something? It's very much different so I wonder what is the recording R. sent you then??

I didn't download it yet, I didn't know where to download it from. So, yeah, you can send me that too, I'll listen. I don't even know if Ronan will know what it is... but I'll try to figure out. If I/Ronan don't manage to solve the mystery, hopefully L.A.D. someday will identify it.

Well, now you have it and let me read what you thought about that! I'm pretty sure R. has mixed the tapes up (assuming he has original) or dubbed it over and forgot about it.

This shows exactly how useless modern mass media is. The worst scandal of the last fifty years, and all I keep reading about in the papers is this Donald Brexit guy who became president of Russia or something. When will CNN report on the great Malitiae/Conjured to Baphomet mixup?

Sorry about the shitty quality - there was no reason, since my original file was a decent wav. Just saved to a crappy mp3 format in Cool Edit. I'll get around to ripping the other two any day now.

No problemo, it works decently enough despite the low bitrate - perhaps it may whet the appetite for the inevitable vynil kvlt limited compilation to be released later this year? ;)

As for the mass media, what can you expect? I should've made a youtube video about it and lo, headlines everywhere!
