ASTHAROTH - Gloomy Experiments + Demos
Dark Symphonies :: 2CD :: 15€
Official reissue of the solitary album, originally released in 1989, from this legendary Polish Thrash Metal act. Underrated and buried within the underground depths, it was about time to unearth this long lost gem of very complex, original technical/progressive Thrash Metal. Somewhere between the atmosphere of Voivod and the technical aggression of Kreator and Necrodeath, Astharoth have the formula to deliver the goods, while managing to still forge a sound all their own. For the first time since 1990, this thrash masterpiece is available as a standalone CD, as the 2009 reissue which included some of the demo tracks was incomplete due to length. To remedy this, the bandīs complete "Wisdom of the blind" demo (1991), "Limits" demo (1992) and "Cycles of the sphere" demo (1994) are featured on Disc 2. Additionally, the bonus tracks "House of frustration" (taken from the original demos sessions) and "The drunk hate" (which was only available on the Metalmania 1989 compilation) are also included. Also for the first time ever on CD, the bandīs "Self-hatred" demo (1990) tracks are included. Each CD features the original classic artwork, as well as lyrics, new liner notes, and tons of exclusive band photos. In addition, the layout uses original elements just like the original LP release on Metal Master Records, for complete attention to detail, even down to the typeface.
