Tormentor (Hun) - 1987 - The 7th Day of Doom

What we have here is a fully remastered and partially restored version of Tormentor's legendary 7Th Day of Doom demo, all thanks to a kind gentlemen who likes to go by "A.O.R.". What this A.O.R. fellow did is truly incredible, you would never have guessed that this was from a tape source.

This demo is, in my eyes, one of the greatest black metal recordings of all time. Like the LP that followed, it was an incredibly original take on the late 80's black metal sound, drawing influences from a number of different sub-genres and combining them all to create the most evil sounding music ever committed to tape. All of the elements that made the 1988 masterpiece, Anno Domini, so great are here, and are just as strong. The masterful song writing with tons of mind melting leads, Attila's morbid screams, tight musicianship, and an overall sense of perfection that is never lost.

This is a brilliant recording with a brilliant remastering job, and you simply need this.
And I thought this was funny:
File size: 106.66 MB
Yet another awesome thing about this recording.

Hi, I have a request and I don't know where to turn but to the single greatest blog on the web!

I am desperately searching for the 1990 "Øev Alkoholika" demo with Czech band Moriorr. It's a long shot but you may have it, or can get hold of it?

All the best from Uppsala, Sweden

Holy fuck I downloaded the original demo, and then this version, and I really can't believe how good of a job the remaster is.
