1 stars Beyond the Darkest Veils of Inner Wickedness is the second demo cassette from Swedish old school death metal band Therion. The demo was limited to 500 copies and was released in 1989. Iīm a bit confused here as everywhere were I have looked this is said to be the second demo from the band and I want it to be the first. This is simply due to the lack on quality on this demo and the somewhat enjoyable debut demo Paroxysmal Holocaust.

The music is old school Swedish death metal in the vein of Entomed, Dismember, Grave, Unleashed and Carnage. Itīs pretty primitive and the compositions are very imature and really not very memorable.

The musicianship is untight and the playing seems uninspired and especially the vocals are a problem to me. First of all the rythm is so lame and the growling is too weak to be convincing.

The production is also worse than on Paroxysmal Holocaust which shouldnīt be possible but this time Iīm annoyed and itīs really hard to set through the whole demo.

As you have probably noticed Iīm not very impressed with Beyond the Darkest Veils of Inner Wickedness. Even the diehard fans should listen with caution as this is so amatourish and trivial. 1 star is of course my rate here.

UMUR | 1/5 |
