This 3 in one album split my face into 3 parts. The first part (Bad Beaten Demos 2008) being badass and tantric. the second (Odal Demos 2006) being garage like and creepy. the third (The Grave Kill Demos) being hilarious and terrifying. I started this record on the wrong side by accident! It came faced the wrong way in the album. Did the band pack it this way? Did someone else? Writing this review now…I feel terrified by the trickery. This began my terrifying journey into this albums heart.
Regardless, each album had recurring themes/instruments/sounds. My favorite being a crazed witche scream. This scream haunts me as I write this. I swear a REAL WITCH is screaming into this microphone. I have no doubts. I also heard a dog barking several times in each record. That dog had to have done that by accident! They must have just kept his barking. The dog was yelling at the ancient witch spirits.
The beginning of the newest sect of the album (the front side) was comical at first. Cheesy harmonized guitars like some sort of BRO showdown. I started to get depressed when the last part of the side redeems itself hard! The end really makes you feel like you’re dying. But its the kind of death that gives you resolve.
