Since this demo was released in 2007 in a limited edition of 200 cassettes and was sent to magazines and webzines as cdr for reviewing purposes in 2008 it is about time that I get round to reviewing it.

All of you are probably wondering what kept me this long… first off I am not one of the quickest around when it comes to reviewing stuff. Actually Mr. Procrastination would be a name well-suited to yours truly. At times I am slower than the music on this demo. Another reason for my procrastination concerning the review of this demo is that upon first listen I was so blown away by it, and also upon subsequent listens, that I thought that I was missing some sort of element which would make it less impressive. After having had this 28 minute disc for about half a year now it is safe to say… it is still as impressive as the first time I heard it.

One of the best demo ever heard. For the doomsters it will be re-released on September 27th in a double cd together with Coronation Of The Black Sun
