CD Reviews

(4 out of 5 stars)

"What we have here is a package consisting of unreleased tracks, a live song and a demo recording from 1992. Carpathian Forest is one of the very few Norwegian black metal bands that hasn't wimped out. You get different variations of their sound on the CD. Their infamous Bloodlust and Perversion demo has everything you would expect from a Norwegian band circa 1992: cavernous mayhem mixed with a sense of sadistic pleasure backed up by a raw production. Their style of mid-paced black metal hasn't changed much during the years, although it has progressed but without losing an inch of their grimness and identity. Plus, it's very easy to see how Celtic Frost has been one of their biggest inspirations. The live song, "Martyr/Sacrificulum" is savage and unrelenting, while the other songs contains the quality and burning rawness we would expect from this band. Excellent release, vital for black metal purists."
A plain rip off

"This is what Id like to call "season of mist trying to make an extra buck" cause thats just what it is. I loved c.f.'s past works and was hoping this (tho not an album) would be another great release. Well I was wrong, it has a few cuts from albums that are pretty good songs, and then the TERRIBLE bloodlust and perversion demo, with production so bad you can barley hear anything and a drummer that cant play at all! Im seeming to be finding less and less in this senceless black metal....(excluding black metal bands with substance, ex. Leviathan (us)Xasthur, early darkthrone etc.)Not worth your money at all."
