Hellhammer - Demon Entrails (Prowlin' Death Records, 2008)...

These three demo cassettes: Satanic Rites, Death Fiend, and Triumph Of Death, were released in mere handmade handfuls back in 1983. Including raw(er) versions of such later classics as "The Third Of The Storms", "Triumph Of Death", and "Revelations Of Doom", as well as many otherwise unheard Hellhammer hammerings, such morbid morsels as "Dark Warriors", "Crucifixion", "Decapitator", "Ready For Slaughter", and, er, "Bloody Pussies", it's 29 tracks, 102 minutes of truly ancient evil that any self respecting black/death/doom metaller should revel in. With a twanging low-end of rubbery bass, lurching riffs, pogoing rhythms, echoed vocals, these decidedly lo-fi recordings sound almost like a no-wave take on metal. Accidentally avant-garde (unlike Celtic Frost's later efforts to intentionally be so), Hellhammer were so wretched and fucked up that they've defined "necro" for all time - AQ



  1. Wow, thank you so much! This just rips. Awesome blog, I'm going to link you up on mine.

  2. Now when they say they are going to give you this record free of charge, two things are involved. It is either you are given old information or they just let you know they have what you are looking for and then direct you to a place where you have to pay to be able to use it. public recordsAt the end of the whole process, not only will you be frustrated but you may also end up paying more than you should have paid have you gone to the website directly. This is not to mention the amount of time you just wasted.

  3. what the hell is that cover? I mean I like the heavy metal, but this cover is so creepy, that thing look like a mix between the goatsucker and great Cthulhu.
