The second Treblinka’s demo doesn’t differ a lot from Crawling In Vomits. It’s always the same black/thrash/death mix in pure 80s style and I’m not saying this because I dislike it…not at all. I like this kind of sonorities. They were still true, sincere and with not so many influences from the other genres. The scene in Sweden was growing in 1989, especially for the death metal bands and here we can find also those famous Swedish death metal influences.
The atmosphere is quite ritualistic and obscure but excellent for a demo and the band has grown since their previous release, filling the sounds with good blast beats and sudden, long doom parts with a touch of melody like in “Nocturnal Funeral”. The refrains are always well audible too. The riffs on “Evilized” are truly brutal with a chainsaw guitars distortion, and exactly the guitars play the main role here: they are so heavy that capture your attention during each song.
