It's such a shame that this has never been released officially, because it's surely one of THE efforts of "still-rather-early-days-extreme-metal" and as such an absolute must.

In fact, for the level still getting ever harder metal was at back then, I would deem it most original and a revelation for even long-time fans of old school extreme metal.

It has some zombie rock/death metal elements but still is without BOTH the monotony/total lack of any melody OR abundance of sickly sweet underlying melody predominant nowadays.

Until this has seen an official release (if it ever does), having to deal with this release really isn't the baddest of things that can happen.

It sounds better and is less flawed than the original cassette tape releases (if I listen to what I have, anyway).

If you ask me, this sounds so good, that the original recordings must have been used in the making of this.

This simply is to good to stay unreleased, so thanks to whoever made it into this historic document.
