Demo Diving

my library use to consist of only lp's and the occasional ep here and rthere before i discovered that demo material wasn't just horrible rgarage tracks no one was ever meant to hear. here's some of the rlatest ive been spinning.
1 Demilich
The Four Instinctive Tales... Of Decomposition


If you liked Nespithe hearing this is a no brainer. It's a little more primitive than the aforementioned album but it still rules. I actually prefer the production here to Nespithe and it's got one of the best track titles ever, And the Slimy Flying Creatures Reproduce in Your Brains
2 Depravity
Remasquerade


The Silence of Centuries is one of my favorites from Finland, but this holds Depravity's best track, In Deaths Embrace. I guess this is technically an EP but it fits the mold of this list well enough. Essential listening.
3 Convulse
Resuscitation of Evilness


It's got four tracks that show up on World Without God but i think they're executed better here than they are on the LP. It's essentially everything that makes the Finnish scene good; doom, gloom, death, and a little more gloom.
4 Agonized
Gods...


More from Finland of course, i haven't actually listened to this enough to really have a fully formed opinion, but its essentially more of what you'd expect from the Finnish scene, albeit a little more vicious.
5Disgrace
Inside the Labyrinth of Depression


One of my favorite demo's to come out of Finland, melds a little more aggressiveness in with the doom and gloom sort of akin to what might have happened had Adramelech and Convulse's deformed mutant child died at birth.
6Adramelech
Spring of Recovery


Speaking of Adramelech, here's my favorite death metal ep of all time, which consequently has my favorite death metal artwork of all time, which i actually am getting in mint condition from Italy as a christmas gift to myself. Revived is Adramelech's best track, if you liked Psychostasia definately give this a listen.
7 Adversary
Remains of An Art Forgotten


Bands like Entombed and Dismember are what made the Swedish scene legendary but there's tons of great stuff from the time that never quite got that kind of recognition. Remains does what it does very nicely and isn't too murky for fans of the more popular bands to enjoy. Awesome shit.
8 Festerday
Demo II


I'd actually known about Festerday long before i actually heard them. I always liked ...And Oceans as far as sympho bm goes and knew they started out as Festerday but never bothered to check them out until i started diving into the finnish dm scene. The demo is surprisingly well produced for a demo, and it's kind of interesting overall but nothing really special. It has less weirdness than i was hoping for, because that's why i always had a soft spot for ...And Oceans. The groove bass at the beginning of the second track actually fucking sucks.
9 Carnifex
Decadence


No not the shitty core band, Carnifex was another early finnish dm band that released this fucking awesome ep as well as a split with the above band. It's essential to anyone who has an interest in finnish dm. There's better, but its still worth a listen.
10 Cartilage
In Godly Flesh


Another demo from an early finnish dm band that's definitely worth checking out.
