Purtenance - 1992 - Member of Immortal Damnation

A while back I posted the Purtenance Avulsion demo, an excellent slice of masterful Finnish death metal. After the release of that demo, the band dropped the "Avulsion" from the band name and released a 7" called Crown Waits the Immortal in 1991, which I still have yet to obtain a copy of (some fucker on ebay beat me by $1 in in the last minute of the auction). And after that was released, they unleashed their magnum opus, one of my favorite pieces of Finnish death metal, Member of Immortal Damnation, in 1992. They took all the elements that made that demo so great, such as the well crafted song writing, the chunky Euro-death riffing, the perfectly placed sluggish doom sections and blood soaked production, and cranked it up a few notches.

This is an excellent death metal album. As I said, it's one of my favorites to ever come out of Finland. Enjoy.

Apolion's Genocide - 1993 - Olupicsid Nu A Anedro Sathanas Demo

Apolion's Genocide were a Columbian black metal band who, despite being around for 7 years (or more), only released 3 demos. This is the only one I've heard, but I've been told that the other two do not compare, but that also isn't saying too much considering how incredible this demo is.

The music on Olupicsid Nu A Anedro Sathanas is very atmospheric and haunting black metal, somewhat similar to the first two Samael albums. But like I said, only somewhat. This demo really stands on its own in terms of uniqueness. For the most part, this demo is pretty doom-paced but of course it is completely and undeniably black metal, with it the atmosphere created by the cold and chilling guitars, creepy bass, double tracked vocals (one a higher black metal rasp and another a death growl), excellent use of organ synths and crawling drums (although that is not an uncommon quality found in doom metal). It may not sound like anything mind-blowing, which is really why you need to hear this for yourself.

This demo will surely possess you as it did to me, and that is a promise. Download, download, download.

Brainstorm (Ukr) - 1995 - Brainstorm 7"

Brainstorm are an obscure Ukrainian band who played some REALLY bizarre death metal/ritual music (for lack of a better term). I really can't even describe it. It is just so dark and ritualistic. I advise those who partake in the consumption of good mind-altering substances to do so before listening to this one.


Doombringer - 2008 - Primeval Sorcery (Demo)

Doombringer is a side project of the Polish black/death masterminds Bestial Raids, along with the excellent Cultes Des Ghoules. But with Doombringer they get rid of the black metal influences and create some damn good death metal in the vein of the ancients. I really think these guys can do no wrong. Utter filth!

Mystifier - 1989 - Tormenting the Holy Trinity Demo LP

Ever since last wednesday when I got the fantastic Mystifier 1989-1993 Baphometic Goat Worship boxset that was just put by NWN, I have been listening to nothing but Mystifier, and this demo in particular.

Tormenting the Holy Trinity is my second favorite Mystifier recording (Göetia being the first), and the reasons why are plain and simple. This demo definitely shows them at their rawest and most bestial stage and is pretty much the epitome of all things unholy and evil. Everything is extremely fast without ever getting old, and even at the first stage of their progression to the masterpieces that would follow for the next 4 years, they still had song writing skills that were above a lot of other black/death metal contemperaries, as well as more interesting lyrics then the average band of that era. But of course the lyrics are nothing compared to what was to follow on later releases, where they began to discuss things such as the occult and dark literature.

Highly fucking recommended, along with the rest of the boxset. Download and buy!

Tudor - 1990 & 1991 - Zombie demo & Skeletor demo

Tudor are a Czechoslovakian band who used to play some REALLY excellent black metal, as shown on these two demos. Like the majority of 80's/early 90's Czechoslovakian black metal, Tudor had a unique sound not really resembling too many other bands of that time period. Instead of just conforming to what was going on in Norway at the time, which is what a lot of bands started to do in the early 1990's, they followed down the path that was created by all the great black metal acts of the 80's in the sense that they drew a lot of influence from thrash and speed metal, but still added their own brand of wickedness to the mix and pumped out some truly awesome black metal.

What you will hear on these two demos is crude and unrefined thrashy black metal of the highest order. The overall production and sound is not terrible, but still pretty raw, but the music well makes up for it. Like I said before, this is some truly excellent stuff. Highly, highly recommended.

If anyone has a rip of tape-only Bloody Mary album or can make me a copy, please contact me at pbschofield@gmail.com.

Eternal Darkness (Swe) - 1992 - Twilight in the Wilderness (unreleased MLP)

Eternal Darkness played some excellent and bludgeoning Swedish doom/death. I already posted their 7" simply titled Doomed, and if you liked that then you surely will like this. Twilight In The Wilderness was never released to due to label complications and was forgotten about until the label Morbid Wrath released a compilation that included some of the songs from this recording, but not all of them. But this version that I'm posting does contain all the songs, which I think everyone would prefer. It is an impeccable take on the whole death/doom genre was thriving in the early 90's, but done with that unmistakable Swedish atmosphere and delivery. Highly recommended.

And now here it is. Enjoy.

Hellias - 2007 - Night of Damnation 12''

This great reissue done by the superb Nuclear War Now! Productions includes the 1988 Noc Potepienia EP on side A, and an excellent live recording from 1989 on side B.

In the 80s, Poland's metal scene was full of unique and interesting bands with their own sounds, and Hellias were no exception. They were a rather goofy looking bunch, but they played some of the most sinister thrash metal you'll ever hear.

One of the things I love about these two recordings is the guitar tones that both guitarists attain. It's not very often that you hear great fuzz tones in thrash metal. Usually bands go for a crunchy and a straight forward distorted sound, which works fine, but it's just refreshing to hear a great fuzz tone. But what difference would a great guitar tone make without killer riffing to accompany it? Well that is not the case here whatsoever. The riffing here is very creative and unique and never repeats itself. I love it when bands favor the higher notes with this kind of metal, and that is exactly what Hellias do. The drumming is more straight forward, but it gets the job done and it's not as if this band's music really requires anything too technical or flashy. And now on to the vocals. The vocals are really what gives this band the evil atmosphere that is evoked while listening to this. They sound like an early proto-black metal but with more snarl. They are extremely well done.

This is just one of the many great NWN! Prod. reissues and I highly recommend it to all fans of thrash metal, and just fans of metal in general. There is nothing here to not like. So here is my own vinyl rip of the LP. Enjoy.

Your comments are always appreciated.

Vulcano - 1986 - Bloody Vengeance (my own 320 kbps rip)

I'm sorry for my lack of posts this week. I'm going to try and make it up to you all by posting a few different things at once.

Vulcano's Bloody Vengeance is a well known Brazilian death/thrash/black metal classic, and rightfully so. This album is the epitome of all things bestial and evil, and to this day it still has not been topped. I'm not going to go into detail as to why, because you just have to hear it for yourself.

This album isn't hard to find, but the only rip I've seen of this online is at a 128kbps shitrate (how the fuck do the original rippers think it sounds okay?). Even if there is one at 192, I still thought those who don't own the album would appreciate my 320 kbps rip.

So here it is. Enjoy.

Savage Death - 1985 - Mass Genocide Demo

This is a vicious demo from one of the US death metal pioneers, Savage Death. Aside from the opening riff of the first song sounding almost exactly like that of the opening riff in Death's "Infernal Death", this band didn't sound like too many other bands in 1985.

So here is the cult classic, Mass Genocide. Enjoy.

Saturday, November 8, 2008

Sinoath - Demos

Forged In Blood (1991)

Sinoath were an Italian band that formed in 1990, and played a truly haunting and atmospheric mixture of black metal, death metal and doom metal and strangely never received much attention. Part of their distinct sound comes from the excellent use of keyboards. Instead of overdoing it and making it sound cheesy, they use the keyboards to give the songs more dynamics and to add emphasis to the bone chilling segments.

This is some highly recommended dark and eerie black/death/doom metal. Enjoy.

Still In The Grey Dying (1993)

Reencarnacion (Col) - 1988 - 888 Metal

Reencarnacion are a band from Columbia who have been around since 1986 and, despite some inevitable line up changes and a brief hiatus, are still together. 888 Metal is their first LP that has gained a massive cult following and has been reissued 3 different times, the last being by the almighty Nuclear War Now! Productions (as seen in the picture I took).

At the time of these recordings, Reencarnacion played a very raw form of black/thrash, but had some additional weird and unique aspects to their music as well. A lot of the music on 888 Metal is very fast, and the riffing is overall pretty simplistic, but the way they execute it with their unorthodox song structures accompanied by the occasional bursting out of the black/thrash madness with some all out bizarreness. They have some mid paced sections, and they do change the tempo up quite a bit, but the slowed down sections are still equally as aggressive as the rapid ones. There are certain parts that are just plain weird, which is one of the things that makes this album so atypical, and is one of my favorite things about this album. One song in particular where you will find a good example of this uncanny bizarreness is the last song, "Reencarnacion (II parte)", where they throw in some dissonant violin, acoustic guitar and strange vocal segments, all interwoven into their signature off kilter song structures.

This album took a couple listens to really sink in and grow on me, but it was well worth the effort and it eventually became one of my favorite black/thrash albums of the 80s, which seems to be the case for a lot of other people. So if you don't dig this at first, try giving it a couple more shots, but I'm sure it will click right away for some of you.

Death - 1984 - Live In Tampa 11/9/84 Tape

This is a great sounding live recording from 1984, back when Death were clearly still heavily influenced by Venom, but had begun developing that great early proto-death sound. It was recorded when they were called Mantas, but they had changed the name to Death by the time it was released. It has some early versions of songs that would later appear on the Death's first and finest offering, 1987's Scream Bloody Gore, such as "Evil Dead" and "Beyond the Unholy Grave", as well as a lot of songs that never made it onto any official Death albums and would only be seen on other demos, plus a cover of Venom's "Poison".

The musicianship, as expected, is pretty sloppy in some places, but personally I think it just adds to the overall sound. It continues on the path Venom had paved for all early extreme metal bands, where you don't have to be a virtuoso musician in order to make some groundbreaking and brutal metal.

This is an excellent recording and a good look into the first stages of what would become the US death metal scene. Enjoy.

*NOTE: If anyone has any other pre-Scream Bloody Gore recordings at 192kbps or higher please contact me on here or email me at SaturatedGoatTrumpet@gmail.com

Diocletian - 2005 - Demo I

Diocletian, hailing from New Zealand, play bestial black/death metal in the Blasphemy/Bestial Warlust/Archgoat vein and they do it damn well. They are definitely one of the best current bands in this genre.

Here is a rip from my own copy of the tape. Enjoy.

Mourning (Hol) - 1992 - Greetings from Hell

So I'm back from my two week trip to Florida with no internet, and this album was getting played pretty frequently throughout the trip. It's an obscure piece of death/doom from Holland, home to other classic death/doom acts such as Semptiternal Deathreign, Delirium and Asphyx. Great stuff.

Purtenance Avulsion - 1991 - Demo

Purtenance Avulsion released one demo under this name before shortening it to just Purtenance, where they released and EP and a full length (both are also very good). The music on this demo is very solid, well written death metal with nice transitions between the face paced death metal sections and the sludgier doom sections. The production is also pretty good for a demo which is always a plus.

Celtic Frost - 7/10/86 Cleveland + Onslaught (UK) - 1984 Rehearsal

Here is a live Celtic Frost recording from 1986 and an Onslaught rehearsal from 1984 (a double whammy!).

As expected, the Celtic Frost recording has a rough sound to it but you can still hear what's going on and it's just nice to hear a live recording back from when they were a great band. The Onslaught rehearsal also has a rough sound to it, but that is expected considering it was probably recorded on a boombox. For those who don't know or just are not familiar with early Onslaught, Onslaught started out playing a crust/punk proto-thrash sound, not too far off from Sodom's early demos, Hellhammer, and Impostor (Nor).

So here they are - nice, rare and raw for ya. Enjoy.

Celtic Frost - Live 7/10/86

Onslaught - 1984 Rehearsal

Autopsy Torment - Orgy With The Dead 12'' LP

This here is the first Autopsy Torment full length. Like their other material, this is old school death metal that is more on the simplistic side. Those familiar with this band will know what to expect. It stays mostly mid tempo throughout the album, but the way it all gets delivered is what keeps it from getting boring. One of the things I love most about this band is Devil Lee Rot's sickening vocals. He sounds like he is choking on vomit while singing along to his favorite Bathory album after gargling some shards of glass. They really are that vile. And I can't think of any band that would be more appropriate to lay those sickening vocals upon other then the mighty Autopsy Torment.

Toxodeth - 1988 - Phantasms Demo

This is the 1988 demo from Mexican death metal band Toxodeth. I actually ripped this from the LP released in 2006 by Utterly Somber Creations. I'm not going to post pictures of the LP because, like all of those Utterly Somber demo compilations, the layout is absolutely horrendous (seriously, what the fuck are they thinking?). Anyway, this is a great demo. These guys were only 17-18 years old at the time and were one of the first bands on the small Mexican death metal scene. They went on to release 2 LPs, and I will upload one of them (1989's Mysteries About Life and Death) sometime in the near future once I get around to ripping it to my computer.

Here it is. Enjoy.

Wormphlegm - 2006 - Tomb of the Ancient King 12'' LP

This is NOT that godawful vinyl-to-128kbps rip that was TRANSCODED to a high VBR by some retard that you will find everywhere else on the internet. I wouldn't do that to you. This is my own vinyl rip.

Anyway, Wormphlegm are a terrific band. They make crawling, filthy, torturous DOOM that can't really be compared to anything I've ever heard before. Some people consider this band "funeral doom", but don't let that fool you. This is in no way that horrible, drum machine, trendy garbage that is often found with most other funeral doom bands these days. Actually, this band sounds more like something some Finnish death metal heads recorded while on opium and acid in 1992 more than anything else.

This is some really wretched doom metal, drenched in layers of filth and vomit. It moves along at an excruciatingly slow pace that rarely picks up, but never gets old. The guitars and bass are very down tuned and drone along while a chilling lead glides above them to keep things interesting and to create a very eerie atmosphere. Both compliment eachother perfectly and fit in perfectly with the guttural growls and piercing high pitched screeches. All of this is backed up by very, very slow, plodding drums that make Saint Vitus's Armando Acosta sound like Mike Browning.

Part 1
Part 2


Death Vomit - 1993 - Death Vomit

Death Vomit were a short lived Russian death metal band who released this full length LP and a live tape. I haven't heard the live tape, but this LP is pretty damn good. It's not really anything out of the ordinary nor is it unique, but who cares? The riffing and the rhythm section are both pretty tight and the vocals sound a bit like Luc Lemay on Obscura, but not really as airy.

So like I said, this album isn't anything out of the ordinary, but it's still good. It has a pretty funny album cover too.

Saram - 2007 - Sinners (compilation)

Saram are a band from Peru who used to play blackened doom metal, but later started to play with a more black/thrash sound. This disc compiles recordings from 1992 to 1998, which is before they started weaving thrash into their sound. The sound quality varies pretty much from track to track, some worse then others, but the music itself is consistently good blackened doom metal that makes great use of synths. The band also has members from the Peruvian metal hordes Goat Semen and Anal Vomit (ridiculous names, but great music). As usual, this is a rip from my own copy of the disc. Enjoy.

Part 1

Mortuary Drape - Into The Drape/Mourn Path LP

This is the compilation LP that was put out by Iron Tyrant Records in 2007, which contains both the 1992 Into The Drape EP and the 1996 Mourn Path EP. Mortuary Drape play remarkably occult sounding black metal (or as they call it, "evil necromantical black metal"), and create an atmosphere that makes it almost seem as though you are attending an actual Black Mass. I put both of these EPs on my "15 Favorite Black Metal Releases of All Time" list.

I ripped this from my own copy of the LP.

So here it is, in all of its evil glory. Enjoy.

Saturated Goat Trumpet - 2008 - The Goat Trumpet Placenta Tape

Saturated Goat Trumpet is one of my bands, and although it isn't metal, I still thought I'd post it anyway. We play a style of music we like to call "Avant-Brown Music". I guess it could be described as a mixture of Sonny Sharrock's Monkey Pockie Boo, Acid Mothers Temple and The Nihilist Spasm Band, but much, much browner. Each song has a general theme instrumental-wise and we just build off of it for the rest of the song.

This is our first recording and was recorded on a Tascam Porta 03 4-track tape recorder, with analog equipment, some nice mics and a decent mixer.

The line up is as follows:
Karissa Lawrence - Vibrato vocal insanity and kazoo
Marcus Dingman - Mandolin, plastic recorder and keyboard
Paul Schofield (me) - Clarinet squeals and honks, keyboard, drums/other means of percussion

The tape cover was drawn by Alex Shenkan.

Please listen with an open mind and enjoy.

666 (pre-Törr) - 1983 - Nekrofilie demo

(Yes, I do not really understand this picture either, but I couldn't find a cover scan of the demo, so this is what I have to use.)

Anyway, 666 were Törr before they were called Törr. This demo is supposedly from 1983 (but it might have actually been recorded in 1985), which shows that by the time these guys were in their first recording stages, they already knew exactly what they wanted to do, and they did it well. Nekrofilie contains 4 songs and 1 intro (sorry, I can't find the last song). Two of which would later appear on Törr's brilliant first demo, 1987's Witchhammer, as well as the Armageddon LP and the Kladivo na Carodejuice LP. The one that didn't, the title track, is a 17 minute blackened proto-thrash epic, with plenty of different parts to keep things moving along at a nice pace, preventing any sort of boredom from sinking in.

This is a nice, raw document of the early stages of what would become the mighty Törr and is recommended to those who are already familiar with their music. However, if you are a newcomer to their music, then I suggest starting out with any of the pre-Made in Hell LPs or the Witchhammer demo.


Ignivomous - 2007 - Path of Attrition 12'' MLP

Ignivomous! The modern kings of dark and dismal old school death metal, following in the footsteps of classic acts such as Incantation, Depravity (Fin) and Demigod (Fin), but adding their own unique flavors, making them more than just a worship band. This is the vinyl reissue put out by NWN! Productions of the band's demo.


Sunday, September 14, 2008

Hadez - 1993 - Aquelarre

Now THIS is some well written black/death metal. Being a fan of Blasphemy and the like, I obviously have no problem with ruthless, hyperspeed assaults, but it is definitely refreshing to hear some stuff with the same amount of fury and aggression but with more variation in the song writing. This band not only incorporates crawling doom passages into their bestial, blasphemous offerings, but they also throw in some chilling lead work, kind of like Swedish black/thrashers Nifelheim, as well as some occasional dissonance. The riffing as a whole is just top notch and flows perfectly within the construction of the songs. They remind me of Abhorer in that way. The sickening double tracked vocals that come in during the doom passages are also something of note. They are really one of the highlights of the album. His growls are great, as well as his higher pitched screams. SO fucking good. I can't stress enough how great this album is. A true masterpiece.

Enough of my stupid babbling. This is some excellent Peruvian black/death metal. Listen and enjoy.

Once again, I apologize for my lack of posts this week. AP classes are a bitch.

Mercyful Fate - Live 1982 - Copenhagen After Midnight LP

I got this bootleg of a live 1982 Mercyful Fate recording fairly recently and I enjoy it quite a bit, despite my hatred for shitty picture discs (I actually enjoy LISTENING to my records). The set list is great, although since it's from 1982 there is no Don't Break the Oath material. But of course it's not too big of a problem due to their first two releases are both masterpieces as well. As far as picture discs go, the sound is pretty good. A little muddy, but what do you expect? One disappointment I did have though was King's vocals cracking a couple times during "Black Funeral", one of my favorite Fate songs. Other then that, this is a great recording. It also has the song "Return of the Vampire", the previously unreleased track that didn't make it to the first two LPs.

Here is my own vinyl rip. Enjoy.
Part 1

And sorry for my lack of daily updates like what I was doing in the summer. School has started up again so I don't have time to do it everyday.

Necrosanct - 1993 - Desolate

Like Necrosanct's previous effort, the mighty Incarnate LP, Desolate delivers relentless death metal that does not let up for a second. Although this is not quite as good as Incarnate, it's still Necrosanct, so you know you're in for some bestial and fast death metal that carries on the ferocious nature of Incarnate, making this worthy of more than just one listen. The production is not as raw as Incarnate but is still pretty raw sounding.

This is a 320 kbps rip from my own copy of the CD. Enjoy.

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

Expulser - 1992 - The Unholy One

Expulser's The Unholy One is another great piece old school Brazilian metal. This is mostly fast paced death metal with a good amount of thrash influence. But unlike some other Brazilian classics such as Bloody Vengenace, Campo De Exterminio, Morbid Visions, and Immortal Force, this came out in '92, when the death metal sound had already been established and most of it's thrash characteristics had been altered. The material from the split with Brutal Distortion is also on this disc, which has more of an 80s death/thrash Holocausto type sound.

Törr - 1990 - Armageddon LP

Armageddon is the very first Törr album, the brilliant black/thrash/speed metal masters from the Czech Republic. Although this album came out in 1990, it sounds like it could have been recorded between 1984 and 1988, when black metal was at it's peak and still had a lot of thrash and speed metal characteristics. And that isn't just because some of the songs were on demos made in the 80's, because all of their best material (everything before Made In Hell) has that great 80's black metal sound.

Like all of pre- Made in Hell era Törr, this album shows an incredible amount diversity between song styles which is one of the many things that makes this band so great. Some songs are at a slower pace such as "Žal" and the title track, while there are other songs that are all out rapid black/thrash assaults. But those aren't the only two sounds on the album. That would be a bit too one dimensional for the mighty Törr. The majority of the songs on here are made up of great non-repetitive riffs that make band's ability to write some great, versatile songs very clear. The diversity within the songs is also due to the vocalists (Vlasta and Ota) wide range of vocal styles, which can change section by section a number of times within just one song, as well as Radek Sladký's simple but effective, varied drumming.

This album is one of the best albums to have ever come of the black metal scene. Here is my own rip of it. Enjoy.

Upsidedown Cross - 1993 - Evilution

Upsidedown Cross have been one of my favorite bands for a long time. Evilution is one of the most demented and fucked up albums I've ever heard. Musically it is a unique mixture of sludgey doom metal, psychedelic and noise. All this insanity is accompanied by the sleazy vocals of Larry Lifeless, ex-vocalist of Kilslug and who is also involved in the bands Angry Hate and Adolf Satan (both are great names). And when I say this is demented doom, I mean this is REALLY demented.

They started in the late 80's, released a self titled LP in 1991 (which I will upload when I rip it from my vinyl), released this album in 1993, and an EP in 1994. Then in 2002 they re-formed and recorded a song for a split 7" with the hilarious sludge band Sloth (US). I'll upload the EP and split 7" sometime in the future as well.

Here is my own 320kbps CD rip of the album. The only thing that sucks about Evilution is that it never got the proper vinyl treatment. Just tape and CD. Enjoy anyway.

Obscurity (Swe) - 1986 - Ovations of Death demo

Obscurity were pretty much the first band in Sweden to release a death metal demo. But this is not your usual Swedish death metal. Ovations of Death contains a really raw and primitive early death metal sound, kind of like the Poison (Ger) demos. Obscurity were not quite on the playing level as bands like Nihilist and Sorcery, which may be why they are so overlooked.

This is great if you're into ugly, early forms of death metal. Enjoy.

Leprocy - 1988 - Brutal Occupation demo

Leprocy were a Canadian thrash band who released 3 demos. They played a hybrid of dirty thrash with elements of power and traditional heavy metal. This band clearly had what it takes to make some killer thrash, and it's a shame they never recorded an LP, although this demo kind of makes up for it.


Thursday, August 28, 2008

Violent Dirge - 1993 - Elapse

What we have here is some pretty technical death metal. But don't let the term "technical" scare you away because this is far from the modern day "tech. death" bullshit from utterly terrible bands like Cephilac Carnage and Beneath the Breakdowns (aka Beneath the Massacre). The death metal on this recording is unadulterated and raw technical death metal full of outstanding riffs, flailing solos and Luc Lemay-esque vocals. The drums are also great because they manage to come off as sounding less intricate then the riffing, but without undermining the music and technicality at all.

The production is pretty dirty, which I like a lot. If I had to make a stylistic comparison, it would be more to bands like Insanity that blended eccentric, technical riffing with more straight forward old school death metal sections rather than Atheist, Hellwitch or later Gorguts. Those bands had more complex arrangements and would stay in the "technical" vein throughout whole songs (not that that's bad. I love those bands).

Here it is. Enjoy.

Transmetal - 1988 - Muerto en la Cruz LP

Excellent deathly thrash metal from Mexico. It's a really great album.
