Cryptic Tales - Anathema (1992)

Crushing Polish death/doom. Ugly, blasting death metal, ethereal epic doom, and a beautifully punishing combination of the two, colored occasionally by ghostly keyboards. It's a demo, but make no mistake: this is a high-water mark for the subgenre.

Track listing:
1. Anathema
2. Steeple of the Nightmare
3. Live in Vinnless
4. In Grave Rotting Is Slowly
5. Voices Inside the Beast
6. Putrid Mutants

There will be only death
