Black Howling - Forgotten Land, Throne and Crown

Here is the first demo released by this raw two-piece act from Lisbon, Portugal. This release offers quite a fulfilling cold atmosphere that is at times melancholic. Four excellent tracks add up to about thirty minutes of pure, lo-fi Black Metal indulgence. Highly recommended.


Vagézaryavtre - Tsaévarya Vagézaryavtre

Vorbd Dréagvor Uézréèvb and Meyna'ch came together in 1996 to create the most vile, disgusting thing either of them have ever released. Imagine Brenoritvrezorkre, but slowed a bit..and covered in melted trash and dead rats. This four song demo is the fucking DEFINITION of no frills black metal, and is practically unlistenable unless you are prepared for the atmosphere that the LLN is so notorious for creating.

Miles Davis - Live Evil

This strange release was recorded live on December 19, 1970, as well as February 6, June 3, and June 4, 1970...each time with a different line up. This is a pretty weird album for Miles, but if you've ever heard this album's predecessor Bitches' Brew, you may have a better understanding concerning the aim of this record.

Nurse With Wound - Soliliquy for Lilith

Utterly trance-inducing as well as consuming.. a mandatory listen.
Released in 1988, here it is in two parts.

Saatkrähe - My Tomb

An absolutely haunting release courtesy of France's Saatkrähe. This demo consists of four powerful tracks, very reminiscent of the style of Black Metal demonstrated by LLN during the early 90's.

My Tomb

Grausamkeit/Blod Besvimelse split

This incredible demo was released in the year 2000, but sounds nearly as old as any classic Black Metal cassette I've ever listened to. Grausamkeit truly offers some of his best and raw material on this release. The first three tracks are absolutely raw and unrelenting in perfect lo-fi cassette quality. The last three tracks of the split are instrumental and make very little sense. What's even more interesting about the last three tracks by Blod Besvimelse, is that the project's sole member is none other than B.S.O.D. of Grausamkeit's wife; as the two can be seen on the demo's cover together.
