CD Reviews

Like None Other
Bill Lumbergh | Initech | 12/05/2006

"Demilich was one of the most obscure and unique bands to emerge from the early 90's death metal emission. Sadly, this was their only full-length. However, Demilich will never be forgotten with the release of 1993's "Nespithe".

This album really is like none other. This band writes technical music like the bands mentioned above, but if you like mediocre production (it blends it well with the music, so don't judge), Demilich's got the good. The guitar work could easily be in league with Meshuggah, Gorguts, and Cryptopsy if you listen closely. Mikko Virnes is good behind the drum set and definitely one of the most underrated but talented drummers of all time.

Now, here's what may put people off: Antti Boman's vocals. Boman uses the gurgling vocal sound that may take some getting used to if you're not a big fan of the goregrind-esque vocal style, but if you can easily bypass that, then you can easily listen to the wonder that is Demilich.

As for acquiring the album, as the other reviewers have said, it's free and available on their website, along with demos and live recordings of the band as well. is where to go.

Also note, this band just played their last show ever in July 2006, so DON'T expect anything new from them. However, listen to "Nespithe" and prepare to hear an album like none other."
Great Album!

"I've noticed other reviewers have pointed out the obvious fact that this album can be downloaded. If you think about it though, any album can be downloaded with not much trouble. That said, most death metal fans buy music anyhow. This is a killer addition to any DM collection. These guys are real mavericks almost to the extent of Gorguts or Cryptopsy. Vocally this album stands way out, and I think the vocals sound sick as all hell, but they take a little to get used to as well. There is almost a tech/jazz inflection going on musically, but not to the point where it loses it's 'metalness'."

"This is some really sick and guttural DM!!! I don't know much about this band and this album is probably their only release, so I'm kind of disappointed... Anyways, this band shows some great musicianship and the vocals are some of the lowest and most guttural ever even though it's kind of weird..."
