line-up on release unknown

Review: First up are two rehearsal tracks by Yaotzin - the band that impressed me with the debut mini-CD Heaven Burning Bleeding. But Yaotzin turned out to be the kind of band that released every rehearsal or recording they ever did, resulting in a long list of more-of-the-same, totally pushing me towards avoidance. Don’t get me wrong, a track like The Incarnation of Satan is worthy stuff but really deserves a fierce studio production, and not a second rate rehearsal sound. The Mayhem covers Freezing Moon and Deathcrush are okay, and they probably work really well live or as a well-produced cover. However, I’m not waiting for a rehearsal of these songs, other than by an early Mayhem line-up.

Adonai Sathanas has chosen a very weird sound for its vocals. While the instruments are sounding pretty decent - although I suspect them being a rehearsal - the vocals are weirdly balanced above the music, with a sound that immediately brings to mind a microphone stand in a shower. The Bathory cover Satan My Master is enjoyable, and the vocals seem to be a little more balanced here.

Nord offers very low-fi black metal, starting after a keyboard-intro that would have sounded too ramshackle even in 1990-1992... The black metal needs a few moments to warm up, but there are some moody riffs on Waar ooit leven was worth listening to. The drums are totally ignorable though, and sound like my own teenage-experiments in the early 1990s. Conclusion: intro and outro should have been skipped.
