Leviathan - Howl Mockery At The Cross Digi-CD
Leviathan’s “Howl Mockery at the Cross”: Demo’s for those seeking the past of Black Metal’s Future!
Here we have a nice collection of demo era Leviathan.
Similar to Demos 2000, and a handful of Wrest’s demo material, we see a stronger tendency to a more traditional, Celtic Frost, style of black metal. The overall atmosphere on the album is sometimes psychotic and sometimes just plain evil. There are some bands who make compilation albums with songs easily found on the standard editions of their common full-lengths, and there are some bands who compile rare songs from demos or the like. “Howl Mockery at the Cross” is a solid example of the latter. The release contains a collection of Leviathan songs recovered from damaged demo tapes. Consequentially, the recording quality varies from song to song. Some of Wrest’s best work can be found here
Appropriate listening if you slit you wrists to: Anaal Nathrakh’s early years, classic Burzum, Emperor’s demo, Xasthur
