Heretic – Tape traitors (2CD)
A monument of a release compiling the bands’ five demos recorded between 1997 and 2002 plus a bunch of unreleased and rare demo tracks, outtakes and compilation tracks, for a total of 37 tracks / 2+ hours. In the 90s, almost no one played this style of primitive and harsh midtempo black metal. The band was influenced by their comrades from Beherit, Barathrum, Blasphemy and other obscure acts that roamed the underground in those days. On this compilation, you can hear early versions from tracks that later appeared on Black metal holocaust, one of the most possessed and pure Satanic albums ever recorded in the Dutch underground. Comes on double CD with a big fold-out booklet with many old photos and liner notes by Goat.
