I was really struggling to see why anyone would want to put this out until I started researching a bit.
I mean, these are really shitty quality recordings and, to be honest, especially the live material on the first disc is an embarrassment to demand people's hard-earned cash for.
Then I found out that Varg Vikernes, Abbath and Jørn Inge Tunsberg (formerly of Immortal and now of Hades Almighty) played in the band! Lo and behold! Now I see reason in the madness.
Did they ever play in the band at the same time, though? No, not really, but still...
Next question: And would it make this music better if they had? That would have to be a big an resounding 'NO!' Shitty music is shitty music no matter who made it.
To be fair, the second disc has music on it which shows some potential. The style is a thrash inspired, groovy kind of death metal, some of them with growl, some with a near-black metal vocal. The sound is a slightly better demo sound than the disc one material, but still, I'd venture any day that your money is better spent on practically anything else out there on the market, unless of course you're a hellbent fan of anything Vikernes, Abbath or Tunsberg came near. It should be obvious by now that I do definitely not belong in that category of music lovers.
