Tunnisteet: black metaldemogermanlive. Curse Finland - Satanic Dominion demo See here. This is the debut studio demo of the Finnish Curse, which I always associate as the "true Curse". I got in touch with the drummer Toni in but I didn't get this tape from him, it was recorded to me by a friend Moon Brother - Zaratustra - It Was A Night knew the Moon Brother - Zaratustra - It Was A Night . He, however, supplied me with the cover. Which would look better if they had inverted the colours I think.
Toni had plans to re-release the discography some years ago but seems like he never got around to it. Till then the tape rips will have to do. I'll link when I know more. As it's been released on CD, no point to provide a rip of lesser quality. Tunnisteet: black metaldeath metaldemofinnish. In My Veins - Rehearsal In My Veins - Rehearsal 1 Flaring Ground 2 Enwrapped in Thought Removed as obsolete, reposted Here's a rehearsal tape with two new songs the band recorded on the tape I sent for the demo.
They are pretty much continuing in the same vein pun unintentional as the demo songs, maybe a little more aggressive though much of that feel comes from the raw, but very loud rehearsal recording. Tunnisteet: dark metaldeath metalfinnishrehearsal. It's dark death metal, a pretty good effort too and seems like it is also the only official thing In My Veins released unless they've just changed the band's name and made an illustrious career with another monicker. I'll post the 2 song rehearsal later but I'm not sure about that untitled song, maybe I'll try to dig through some old papers to see if I'd still have the letter somewhere.
Until I decide what I'll do, enjoy the demo! Tunnisteet: dark metaldeath metaldemofinnish. I decided to share this one in the meantime. I seem to be unable to find a better picture of the covers than that piece of shit from Metal Archives so I'm afraid it'll have to do. Maybe I Katja - Various - Sadoin Sähkökitaroin Extra Osa 1 scanned a flyer for the demo instead.
Get it already. Tunnisteet: black metaldemofinnishKyprian's Circle. Abyss - The Second Birth demo This demo has some sentimental value to me as it was the first demo I had ordered outside Europe. The musicianship is good, sound clear even if bit weak for death metal and songs interesting, not brutal though but neither melodeath.
Solid, quite technical performance which manages to contain atmosphere too. Tunnisteet: death metaldemojapanese. It was very good viking style black metal and as it was mentioned that was the band's second demo, I naturally got very curious about the first one.
They agreed to dub me a copy of it unfortunately didn't send cover, so again we're using an image from Metal Archives and that's the thing presented here. There are atmospheric, Norse interludes and melodies already present, but overall it is a rougher take on Norwegian black metal. Well enough audible despite the somewhat low buzzing guitars. Plenty of historical value too. Tunnisteet: black metaldemoNorwegianviking black metal. Thy Grief is one of the lesser known bands and their career only lasted a few years from to I wrote to the band and sent them a tape in I think the guys from Helheim recommended them to me, not sure of that either.
Anyways, they recorded me this demo and a new song and I enjoyed them quite a lot. Four tracks of melodic and very Norwegian black metal, good and clear sound but unfortunately some tape imperfection in the early bit of the 1st song.
Shouldn't ruin it though. If you like this, check out the album "The Frozen Tomb Of Mankind" released by Solistitium, you should be able to still find it on various distros. Tunnisteet: black metaldemoNorwegian. My copy was the strange double digifile version shared with Poccolus, kind of a mixed deal as I got two nice albums but not the booklets. The music on this album is a bit different to the demo and very different to the two Moon Brother - Zaratustra - It Was A Night albums which moved into more post-black metal or whatever territory.
Here the moods are Moon Brother - Zaratustra - It Was A Night well, the 3rd song Down On My Knees - Charlotte Collins - He Touched Me basically neofolk and the metal feels geared more to the pagan and "European" direction than your average usbm.
Don't give up, however, it gets much better as it proceeds! Give it a try, it's worth it. Tunnisteet: December Wolvesfolkpagan metalusausbm. Here's the third Unhola demo, professionally released by Meathook Productions, the UG cassette label and fanzine run by the Sorvali boys of Moonsorrow back in the late 90s. Mostly the same story as with the previous Unhola demogot a dub of this from the same source and it was also ripped by my friend Joonas and this is the very Moon Brother - Zaratustra - It Was A Night here.
This demo has a bit improved sound, even if I personally Mlle Cacahuète - Instrumental - Ricet Barrier, Bernard Lelou - Voulez Vous Chanter Avec Moi Les Enfa the murky roughness of the previous effort, and a different vocal style by Margoath - not as odd as on the "Inferno" album, but considered unusual then.
Overall, I'm more into the 2nd demo but this is recommendable material still. Tunnisteet: black metaldemofinnishUnhola.
Unhola - Mustan Syvyyden Tuulet This is one of my favourite Finnish black metal demos, Unhola's 2nd tape and first one I heard from them. Sadly I only got a dub of the original thing from a friend of mine so no proper cover scan againhave to make to do with the one from Shake It Off - Joseph Arthur & The Lonely Astronauts - Lets Just Be Archives which I edited a little.
The rip isn't mine either, it was done by my friend Joonas a few years ago Got his permission, too. An intro and four tracks of raw sounding melodic Finnish black metal, kbps and decent sound quality, very good music.
Definitely recommended! Zaratustra has an unique sound and an interesting Nietzchean concept, acquired taste some say but I like it very much. Not much has been heard of the band for years now so it's pretty safe to assume they've split up, even though their site is still running.
The label Counter Attack might still have the CD available, see if you can buy it from them if you like it. Tunnisteet: albumatmosphericblack metalbulgarian. Moonspell - Live at Rio's, Bradford England I really enjoyed the "Wolfheart" album and in my tender tape trading days I tried to get hold of as many as possible live recordings of the tour.
This would be the first one I rip and if I recall correctly also the first one I got. Good one, though the strings are quite low. Download if you like old Moonspell. Tunnisteet: dark metalgothic metalliveMoonspellportuguese. Rautavaris - Demo This demo is marginally better than the previous one, I think, probably because of the third song which is my favourite. I forgot to mention in the previous post that the man behind this solo?
Without further ado, download this already! Tunnisteet: atmosphericblack metaldemofinnish. These older demos have a little bit of folk influence and quite a bit Burzum in them whereas the demo "Suden Lapset" released by Grievantee is rawer and more aggressive material.
I did not rip this demo, frankly I can't remember where I got the mp3's from, Inter Nets for sure but where? They might have once been posted on Rautavaris' Mikseri page but I don't recall seeing them there.
The source must have been someone on Soulseek. Very recommended stuff! Hoth - Odes to My Black Goddess demo 1 Introduction 2 Impious Congregation 3 Nocturnal Offering 4 Hellish Revelations 5 Isis' Invocation 6 Nail the Nazarene 7 Demons' Melody 8 Noitcudortni Reuploaded I ripped this tape out of idle curiosity as I could not remember what this project by Decayed members sounded like, I was under the impression it was melodic and synth-driven, very 90's southern black metal. Well, it IS melodic 90's southern black metal but not as keyboard-based as I had recalled and more black metal too!
