Goat Semen - Southamerican Terrorist Black Death Destruction

Formed in the year 2000, this is the first demo from Goat Semen. A raw blend of black, death and thrash metal is demonstrated here flawlessly by this Peruvian horde. These same songs were re-recorded with much higher production and reissued on the 2002 self titled demo as well as the 2004 split with Peru's own Anal Vomit. The versions offered on this first demo are barbaric and relentless lo-fi bursts of Satanic and blasphemic rage. Also pay attention to the clusterfuck of a drum solo that happens in "Warfare Noise".

Anti Cimex - Raped Ass

Released in 1983, here is the Raped Ass EP by Sweden's Anti Cimex. This D-beat classic absolutely punishes from start to finish with a rage that is uncaptured by any other band from this time period. Aggressive riffs and shredded vocals make this easily one of my favorite punk releases ever.

Ravenclaw - Winternacht

Primitive and raw black metal from Germany. Solo project of Gaamalzagoth of Moonblood, Azaxul etc. Released in 1996


Tzaphkial - Anahata Chakra, Kundalini, Luciferi...

In 1994 Tzaphkial released their only demo before the group became inactive. It's sole member Abrahel joined France's infamous Bekhira one year later. I'm not really sure how I feel about this tape, there are some good moments on here but it has it's fair share of amateur moments as well. Overall, this is a strange tape that I'd say is definitely worth a listen.

Sadorass - In the Chill of the Dark Forgotten Forest

Released in 1996, this is the first demo from Sadorass. Strange and sloppy black metal from Germany.
