DRAWN AND QUARTERED
DRAWN AND QUARTERED
Crusaders Of Blasphemy
(self-financed)
26:01min

This is what I call "perfect Death Metal"! Dark and brutal riffs à la IMMOLATION, MORBID ANGEL, INCANTATION, deep vocals comparable to good old Craig Pillard (ex - INCANTATION, DISCIPLES OF MOCKERY), driving tempo and an overall sinister atmosphere, that makes you feel like sitting in a crypt surrounded by the carcasses of young women, ha ha!!! DRAWN AND QUARTERED achieved exactly this on their 2002 MCD, entitled "Crusaders Of Blasphemy". Under the banner "Death Metal against Christianity" the Seattle four-piece creates blasphemous hymns since 1996 and in 2000 "To Kill Is Human", DRAWN AND QUARTERED's debut saw the light of day. The five songs on this new MCD continue the dark tradition of the bands I mentioned above, but with a slight individual note in form of some melodic leads and riffs that do not affect DRAWN AND QUARTERED's brutality, but make the band differ from its inspirators. Songs like 'Worshippers Of Total Death', 'Kill For My Master' or 'Vengeance Of The Unholy Inquisition' are excellent blasphemous Death Metal and I honestly hope, that DRAWN AND QUARTERED get the chance to release their second full-length CD soon!!! Support this band!!! Check out the band's website: http://takeoff.to/drawnandquartered and be sure to listen to MP3's of 'Crusaders Of Blasphemy' and 'To Kill Is Human' under the following link: http://uk.artists.mp3s.com/artists/340/drawn_and_quartered.html You can also email Kelly Kuciemba (guitars) for additional information: doublek666@webtv.net.

DRAWN AND QUARTERED
DRAWN AND QUARTERED
Crusaders Of Blasphemy
(Ancient Spirit Terror)
32:04min

Being a CD addicted, I would of course have prefered to see "Crusaders Of Blasphemy" being re-issued on compact disc as well, but at the end of the day a tape version is still better than not having the featured material at all. Originally this used to be a five song promo CD, recorded at DRAWN AND QUARTERED's rehearsal space on an 8-track back in 2002, in order to present their new material to Moribund Records, who were pretty much interested to release a new album by the band (which they really did - as you all will certainly know - about a year later). But due to the fact that Seattle's finest Death Metal merchants were really satisfied with the result, they pressed a couple of additional copies and used to spread them around at their shows at the time. All of those copies are gone by now of course, but the guys at Germany's excellent Ancient Spirit Terror Zine simply couldn't live with that (just like myself) and decided to give this material a second chance. So, they gained themselves the rights to re-issue "Crusaders Of Blasphemy" on cassette with two additional, previously unreleased bonus tracks! But beware, it is once again limited (300 copies only!), so make sure to order your copy quick before it's too late again Just like their ABAZAGORATH tape release, also this one is nicely packaged, with a pro-printed black & white cover, even featuring the lyrics to both the exclusive tracks ('Bloodbath Communion' and 'Slaughter The Disciples'). Those two songs originally got recorded in 2003 for a split 7" EP that never came out, so even those die hards among you who already own the original promo CD should make sure to get a copy of this as well! If you've checked out the reviews on DRAWN AND QUARTERED's other releases somewhere else on our site (or even read the in-depth interview), you will of course already be aware of what to expect musically from these guys: blasphemous, brutal Death Metal in the vein of INCANTATION / IMMOLATION or older MORBID ANGEL, always performed with the necessary dark feel to it and highly impressive from start to finish! Within a very short period of time DRAWN AND QUARTED have turned into one of my personal all time Death Metal faves, which should easily speak for itself! So, this tape is definitely a must have item for every dedicated Death Metal worshipper around! It sells for 3 Euro / $, plus 1,44 Euro postage inside of Germany (ask for individual postage rates if you're ordering from other countries) at the following address: Vasili Vasilopoulus, P.O.
