Wintermoon - Reh. Demo 1/1995 + The Mightiest Stand Above (1995)

Two lo-fi demos of warped, ritualistic Finnish black metal. Sounds like it kinda wants to be epic, melodic black metal, but someone shot them full of morphine. Watery keyboards, delay-heavy rasps, sparse interludes, disjointed songwriting, and generally slower tempos.

Track listing:
   -Reh. Demo 1/1995-
1. Under the Wintermoon
2. ... And Snow Covered Hills
3. Wind Through the Battle of Souls
4. Faunus
5. The Forest Calls Me
   -The Mightiest Stand Above-
1. First Journey... (Intro)
2. Night So Cryptic Is All Mine
3. Our Once Proud Northern Land
4. Final Journey... (Carries)

  1. Fuck yes! Finnish dark metal glory!

  2. "Watery keyboards, delay-heavy rasps, sparse interludes, disjointed songwriting ..."

    Those fun-lovin' Finns! Apparently these guys were the Finnish Monkees. They had their own Saturday morning TV show, where every week the whacky foursome got lost in a dark forest and were disemboweled by insane ghost-lizards. But so many pre-teens committed suicide after watching the show it got cancelled after only fourteen series.
