This is how a demo should be!

Black Metal demos in general are very difficult to like, but there are some that create a very charming character by being even more primitive! This is one of those latter ones.

All of these three tracks have been recorded properly on later releases, but as I said, this demo is better on some tracks.

The first track is almost like an old German military march, with simple drumming and uplifting riffs, but the re-recorded version on the 2003 full-length is far better.

The best track on this release is by far the second track, it's one of the best Burzum worshiping songs I've ever heard, and none of the re-recorded versions are as good as this version, simply because of that glorious cold atmosphere. What an epic track.

The third track is also much better than the proper recordings of the song, simply because it's not as raw as the other versions, and this soft focus production gives it an almost hypnotizing effect.

All in all, a must have demo!
