The only demo by this obscure French black metal act. If you're lucky enough to find a copy, you'll hear why. You should be able to tell how average it is by looking at the cover. The music is simplistic and amateurish just like the cover art and layout.

The vocals throughout remain raspy and nearly hidden. During the quiet parts of the first song they are especially annoying and not very evil. Or is Satanachia going for suicidal? If he doesn't stop singing, I just might kill myself.

The guitar is your usual wail of indistinct fuzz. The second song has some decent riffs, but the guitar tone is absolutely horrible. Throughout the third song the guitar is inaudible underneath the organ. At least these guys were smart enough to not even bother with a bass guitar.

The drum machine is generally horrible throughout this demo. Only on the last song is the drum sound more pronounced and more creative. It really fits the feel of the song, and the blast-beats really stand out. The previous tracks had a thin, cardboard-box sound that often plagues this genre of metal.

It's limited to 133 copies. Don't let that fool you into thinking this is rare and desirable. It's just an average, amateurish demo. They were likely unable to give away the other 533 copies. It's definitely not a release I would make room for in my fallout shelter.
