YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. This is THE DISMEMBER which made me wrap in leather, cover in blood and headbang till death. The sound in this demo is possibli the most rotting, bastard, deathish the band ever had, except maybe for "Pieces". No matter how you see it, this demo is forcefully one of the best demos ever recorded, if not the best Swedish death demo. It has one step more speed and sheer energy than the debut Lp, although the songs "Sickening Art" and "Dismembered" are bubstantially identical, the sound is darker and the vocals deeper, and the sick solos replaced by more straightforward casual notes (eheh) and some effects likethe kayboards in "Sickening Art" replaced by a short whining sound.
"Defective Decay", their watermark, is for the scond time here, this time blessed by Matti's outsanding roars, some higher than the should be bass slaps, and not a single veil of harmonizer as in the recent recordings. The sludgy, rasping guitar sounds are vaguely GRAVEish in impact and straight in your face force, but are characterized by some absolutely DISMEMBER rhytmical, loose twists that make 'em perfect for headbanging and acts of random vandalism. This demo IS the demo you should hear. By the way, I have seen some other copies later made by Nuclear Blast I suppose, which actually had a light blue print on the tape and on the cover. I haven't heard them but I assume they're the same. This demo came in a blank tape and contained Matti's address (bid for it ehehe). At the time, I remember, Nuclear Blast was publicizing it in their xeroxed, 4 sheet catalogs (distant times uh?).
