Hagor – “Demo (2010)” – [Nutzz Recordzz, The]

Black metal and darkness from Redwood City.

Their black metal is mainly fast, raw, and noisy, and these recordings are intentionally very lo-fi. Some songs have tortured screams and some are instrumental. In addition to the black metal songs, the band also records dark, keyboard-based interludes which are influenced by dark ambient, medieval, goth, and ritual music. These interludes sounds like soundtracks to horrifying, obscure VHS tapes.

Though much of their music has yet to be released, the band has been recording (straight to tape) since 2006. The members of Hagor are Xaphan (drums/guitar/keyboard/vocals), Abraxas (guitar), Tavarish (guitar/keyboard/bass). All three members are involved in other projects such as Dark Echo, Tetrapharmakos, and Axaxaxas Mlo.

Interludes: #1, 5, 7, 12, 18, 21
My favorite of the black metal songs: #10

Track lengths range from 23 seconds (#3) up to 5 minutes.
