2 stars The Nocturnus Demos is a compilation album released in 2004 by American, Florida based progressive death metal act Nocturnus. The compilation contains Nocturnus two demo tapes from 1987 and 1988 respectively. Both the Nocturnus (1987) and the The Science of Horror (1988) demos had only been available on cassette tape until the release of this compilation. As a curiosity the songs from the second demo appear first on the compilation while the songs from the first demo is placed last. If weīre talking about quality thatīs a wise choice as the quality is much better on the The Science of Horror demo. I prefer a chronological track order though and find it a minor weakness about the compilation that it isnīt so. The music on the first four tracks ( from the second demo) are old school US death metal with progressive elements while the tracks from the first demo are raw and primitive old school US death metal.

The Nocturnus Demos is only a fan release and even fans of the band might not want to use their life savings here. A 1.5 - 2 star rating is warranted.

UMUR | 2/5 |
