3 stars A huge development in production graces the third demo EP by DEMILICH. Continuing their musical journey into the horrific and macabre on ...SOMEWHERE INSIDE THE BOWELS OF ENDLESSNESS.... the band continue to evolve their sound a few notches. While Antti Boman's trademark gurgled vocals on the vocal fry register have become familiar territory by now, the rest of the band has really taken off and the compositional approach has progressed way past the simple Bolt Thrower influenced death metal of the first demo. Mikko Virnes' drumming skills containing complex patterns and occasional blastbeats are the most noticeable on the evolutionary tree between demos and at this point has become the rhythmic leader upon which the guitars, bass and chord progressions have constructed themselves around.

It must also be mentioned that Aki Hytönen's bass and additional guitar duties have also developed a distinct sound apart from the other instruments. There are also guitar solos of the Morbid Angel type spastically weaving their way into the scheme of things. The band has in effect reached the point of proficiency as heard on "Nespithe" and in fact all five tracks are early recordings of tracks that appear on "Nespithe." But hold on! ...there's still one more demo EP before we get to that classic. No need to hunt this down as it was released in cassette form only and probably impossible to find in that format. Instead find this on the digitally remastered compilation "20th Adversary Of Emptiness" which includes every single thing the band ever recorded. This cassette contained no artwork and was released only as a naked cassette. Now that's death metal!!! 3.5 rounded down
