Staff review by
Our precious genre of 'Heavy Metal' is now, say, about forty years old. In these forty years there have been quite a few bands that tried to scare us. From Black Sabbath through Demilich to Darkspace and Esoteric. Occult symbolism, harsh noise, whirlwinds and sandstorms, underground caves, mad monks, labyrinths and cosmic terrors, we've seen much and by now we're used to much. Right?

Reverorum Ib Malacht's "What Do You Think Of The Old God, We Call Him Judas?" is a gem. A gem, I tell ya.

It's only a demo, it's only released on cassette, it has a muddy production, it is everything 'cult' Black metal is. But it is more. It is genuinely blasphemous, it's fantastically insane and intensily terrifying. On "What Do You Think", all cliches of mad monks roaming through ancient dungeons and performing other obscure activites become frighteningly real. A must-check.

Got Mayhem?

I must be a sucker for rare, low-fi Bm demos because I like this thing a hell of a lot. Very few pieces of music have ever made me feel nervous or apprehensive and this is one of them. Apparently after this release the band went to a different, less metal, style of music which is a shame because they really had some great stuff going here. Recommended, quite a bit.
