ABAZAGORATH
ABAZAGORATH
The Ancient Cult
(Ancient Spirit Terror)
40:14min

Well, here we go with the re-release of the first demo of ABAZAGORATH, from 1996. It was limited to 100 copies, and thus for the die hard ABAZAGORATH maniacs who would not have had the chance to get it, Ancient Spirit Terror has put it out again on tape format, limited to 222 copies. To the four songs of the "Summer 1996 demo" you'll find the addition of 3 other unreleased tracks recorded on a 4 track between 1998 and 2002. So all in all I can warrant you that if you're in for the dirty sound, you'll be more than happy. The whole is very Norwegian sounding, with a vocalist that reminds me a lot of Nocturno Culto's type, whereas the music is more to be put in the area of old (very old) EMPEROR, with less keyboards though. It might wake up the werewolf hidden in each die hard fan of this kind of nordic Black Metal, even if the ABAZAGORATH members are American. The songs are quite different from each other, which is already good for this kind of Black Metal. This is not bad, but a bit flat in the end, even for the more recent songs which suffer from a very bad sound quality. I think that this re-release might appeal only the underground Black Metal purists, because of this particular sounding that reminds a lot on the old demos from the good northern Black Metal era.
