Quite possibly the bleakest thing ever recorded, this brutal 6-track demo from an intentionally nameless Portugal black band will absolutely blow you away. Blistering fast black metal punctuated by endless blastbeats and genre-typical unholy screams from the Abyss, this limited CDr comes with absolutely no information whatsoever save for the DIY black cardboard sleeve it's crudely packaged in. Released by ultra-indie label Latrina Do Chifrudo ("The Horned Latrine" - ha), even they don't know where this blasphemous 30-minute aural assault came from. Compared to some of the lo-fi black metal out there the demo is surprisingly legit - real songs (shit one of them runs almost 9 minutes) and a respectable sense of intention behind the whole thing. I was predicting an unlistenable wall of harsh "black" noise on my first guarded listen and was really surprised how good it fucking was. Enjoy.
