TAPE 2010 by Zwaertgevegt
1: Nachtelijke dwaling
bonus: Die dwoad
12: Verkrachting der engelen - Christfighter cover
Review: The creepy intro Nachtelijke dwaling is quite a promising start for this tape, but when Meester van die bremsen starts (why not correctly de bremzen or is there perhaps one specific bunch of bremzen to be mastered?), we hear an old-Mayhem riff turned into fast drum-computer driven noise, comparable to old Botulistum demo material. The music is basic and simple to its core, but not really powerful or aggressive - which could have been the case with any attention to production. Apart from the drums we hear one buzzing guitar offering Von-like monotony. The distant reverberating vocals sound more like a passing breeze than actual lyrics. The demo also features an Apator cover, Circle of Fucking Life, which is always a plus in my book, but cannot touch the original. The second half of the demo has another cool intro, but the tracks that follow are comparable to the others, and the (lack of) production seems even less powerful. The last track of the bunch, Verkrachting der engelen, suddenly leaps forward with a completely different distorted harsh sound and atmosphere. These two minutes might be a surprise, but not an improvement, but what to expect from material of the dubious, sick Christfighter. Anyway, I know the title prepares us for filthy and horrible decay, but it would have been nice if it hadnt been taken this literally.
