(Century Media Records)
This masterpiece was already recorded in 1992 and in my humble opinion it’s one of most important European Death Metal albums of all times. DEMILICH played a very, very own and unique style and I can’t name any band with a similar sound. The main trademarks are the ultra deep (but still naturally sounding) voice and the very unique riffing. The voice of Mr. Antti Boman definitely is much more brutal than any of those new school frog noise or gore grind clowns. This voice is Death Metal to the bone!!! The guitar work is remarkable and there are some really weird riffs and some fine leads. The production is amazing too and fits perfectly to the dark and obscure atmosphere. Although this recording was done more than a decade ago it still sounds damned powerful. DEMILICH delivered some unholy, well structured, semi-technical and brutal anthems of bizzare Death Metal. This is a Death Metal monument and definitely a must have!!! The first and original release of “Nespithe” was in 1993 by Necropolis Records, by the way, it was the first Necropolis release ever. Then it was re-released with a different cover artwork by Repulse Records back in 1996. Also included on this re-issue was the “The Four Instructive Tales… Of Decomposition” demo from 1991. This new version is identical with the Repulse CD, including the same artwork, booklet etc. and, of course, the four bonus tracks. So if “Nespithe” is still not a part of your collection you definitely should get it now !!! Don’t miss it this time!!!
