Some of these guys would later go on to form the great Different Seasons (see next post), and play a style somewhat similar to them in the slightly symphonic way, using synths. However, the contrast is a bit ugly in this demo, because we're hit with a 2+ minute beautiful atmospheric, almost church-like intro, assuredly to be followed by majesty in grace in music form, but instead, we're hit hard with chunky, almost brutal DM with pounding blast beats and simplistic riffing with a dark, crunchy growl.

Then out of nowhere... the synths! Bizarre. Still very interesting to listen to, even if the main song is almost exceeded in length by its intro. Worth a look to see how Different Seasons developed their style.

NOTE: The entire demo is 11 tracks, but eludes me for now...


  1. Weird! It says it was deleted, but the file still exists and is downloadable from my Mediafire account... All I did was replace the link (which was exactly the same) and it appears to be working now.

    Let me know if it still doesn't work.
