This is a review of another recording from Canada's Blasphemy this time a rare rehearsal from 1989 which captures their very raw take on black and war metal and the demo will be released to the masses in September by Nuclear War Now! Productions and called "Blood Upon The Soundscape".
Distorted amp noises along with some evil sounding black metal screams and demonic growls start off the recording before going into a very fast direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and harsh noises along with the solos and leads also being done in a very raw and chaotic style.
On the second track real guitars are brought into the music and also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the tremolo picking gives the songs more of a raw and early war metal feeling as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
On this recording Blasphemy had more of a raw approach to their early black/war metal by making the music more distorted and harsh, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover war, death, Satanism, rituals and darkness themes.
In my opinion this is is another great sounding recording from Blasphemy and if you are a fan of this band, you should check out this rehearsal. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hording of Evil Vengeance" and "Goddess of Perversity". 8 out of 10.
