This is the very last release from Abigor has this band no longer exists now. The tunes are "Dawn Of Human Dust" (from "Channelling The Quintescence Of Satan") and "Repulsor" (from Satanised"). According to the info this EP should had been released in 2003 but was hugely delayed.

Debut EP of this particular band. The vinyl includes sticker with an early logo drawned by It. The logo is an awful scanned one.

"Messe Noir" was originally recorded live in Pittsburg, on 6th June 1989. So, this is the re-release ofthe early Acheron's material and shows what would become the famous pro Crowley Black/Death Metal. The lay out is beautiful, with a silver printed logo and lyrics in the gatefold. Note the mistake on "Noir" which shoulds be written "Noire" in French.

Even thought there's no info sheet, all lyrics are printing in the gatefold cover. This is nothing but an amzing release with the best 2 tracks from Arckanum so far. "Boka Um Kaos" was the first vinyl release from the label and they did a fucking worth job here. Nothing to complain about.

This 7ep is the same quality than GRenade EP, so excpect a descent job here when it comes to lay out and printing quality. The arghoslent side is the most interesting as Morbid Upheveal plays more chaotic and less easy to get in Metal.

Stargazer's part is pretty great as the band delivers an original avant gardish Death Metal. The Arghoslent one is ok but beeing outstanding. The lyrics from the American band are a bit stupid. Thick cover gatefold carboard

The bands asked for an ultra primitve vinyl, so there's no info sheet, nor that much info about the tunes here. Neverhtelss, the lay out, beeing basic, turned pretty well and the cardbord is thick. A 7EP that reminds a lot early 90's B.M releases. Musically these songs are taken from rehearsal, the Bekira's one being the most captivating.

"Fallen Angel" is the vinyl re-release of the early Bulldözer single from 1984 with the two famous tracks "Fallen Angel" and "Another Beer". This is a nice re release with a thich cardboard cover. An info sheet with lyrics would have been welcome.

"From The Vault" is a bootleg EP inlcuding "In The Chapel in the Moonlioght", Dethroned Emperor" (reh. '84), Morbid Tales (demo '84), "Return To The Eye" (demo '84). The high point of this release is that is gathers old tunes from rare materials. No info sheet.

Cruelty "Marching In Blood" is about 3 tunes taken from a live session in 1986, in Brazil. This EP gathers all the 80's early Death/Thrash feeling, close to Sarcofago, Chakal and Co. The vinyl has a thick cardboard gatefold with a band biography.

A new 7EP that has a very Nunlsaughter design when it comes to the cover. Lyrics are inlcuded in the gatefold, that is pro printed glossy one. The gatefold cover cardboard is a little bit too thine. Note that Craig Hornvel from Nunlsuaghter is part of this band.

This is a poor bootleg of Darkthrone with 2 '92 rehearsal tunes ("Under A Funeral Moon" and "Unholy Black Metal"). There's no info sheet, and stickers on the vinyl aren't printed. Supposed to be limited to ??? 10 000...?

The Demoncy tune is taken from the recording session of "Join in Darkness" and also features on "Empire Of Fallen Angel", with a different version. The Dark opus utne is less interesting as some riffs sounds untuned, or even false. THe EP lacks of info sheet with lyrics or at least recording information. The carboard of the cover is top quality.

A thick and heavy picutre EP offering 2 tracks of old school D.M in the vein of early 90's stuffs. The quality of the printing on the picture is at the top. The only shame comes from the band title that is nearly impossible to read due to a complex logo and the lack of info sheet with the vinyl.
