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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
