DEMOndays XII

ALRIGHT. One from the collection here, something I first heard thanks to Cato's inclusion of it on the Thrashing Rage Vol. III comp. from 2012. Apparently I played the very same track on a pretty ripping South American bands-only show later that year, here.
But anyways, back to Chile, where Occult hails from. Other than this and the what's on the Archives (nothing), I don't know anything about the band except it reminds me of Körgull The Exterminator or maybe Infernal Curse from Argentina or Damnation from Sweden. So yes, kind of Bathory-infused thrash. Killer stuff, all scans in the zip folder. No bootlegging!

Occult (Chile) Metal Darkness [2011]
1. Defenders of Black Steel
2. Supreme Power
3. Metal Darkness

DEMOndays XI

ALRIGHT. Definitely almost forgot about this again, until I just sat down and stuck on this demo and was like "AHHH". Although this maybe isn't as good as the first demo, it's still far better than most demos of this style and era, and beyond. Two classic demos, ughhh.

Pentagram (Chile) Demo II [1987]
1. The Malefice
2. Profaner
3. Temple of Perdition
I am hoping to some degree this post will become "interactive". By this, I mean that most of my files are rips from the internet and some, as killer as the music is, are not very good/high quality recordings. Also, sometimes the artwork is incomplete or low-res. So, what I am asking here is for people to help improve these demos. If you have a better recording, higher-res artwork, info regarding the demo, etc, PLEASE either mail it direct to me here or simply add a link in the comment section. Go on.

DEMOndays X

OKAY. I know I am day late, again, but between beating Bosnia in the play-offs last nite and the general drudge through the daily mire, I just didn't have the time. SO, here it is—the classic "Anno Domini" demo from Hungary's Tormentor, featuring one Attila Csihar on vocals. This post is somewhat of a pre-cursor to tonite's show, volume five in the black metal series, Unholy Forces of Evil. I can't say anything about this to equal its ferocity, so just click the link below and you will be informed. One thing worth mentioning is that this was due to be their debut LP, but it got dropped and ended up coming out as a demo.

Tormentor (Hungary) - Anno Domini [1989]
1. Intro
2. Tormentor I
3. Heaven
4. Elisabeth Bathory
5. Damned Grave
6. In Gate of Hell
7. Tormentor II
8. Trance
9. Apocalypse
10. Lyssa
11. Anno Domini

DEMOndays VIII

ALRIGHT. Apparently I either forgot yesterday was indeed Monday or that I have this week-beginning obligation (both, actually), but here it is, nevertheless—volume VIII of the DEMOndays series. This week you are getting one track, but a great eleven-plus minutes. Perfect for the fog/changing season, should you be reading this in the Northern Hemisphere, that is. More black metal on the next Maniac Monday on November 17/18.

STRID (Norway) - "End Of Life" [1993]
1. End of Life
