Nåstrond – From A Black Funeral Coffin
Label: CRYPTIA Productions – LCF 1
Format: Vinyl, 12″, Limited Edition
Style: Black Metal
This is the first 12″ vinyl reissue of the self-released demo tape “From a Black Funeral Coffin” released in January 1994 and limited to 666 copies. Actually this is the very first stuff recorded by these Swedish demons together with “The Black Winter” demo published slightly before. On the B side there are some three extra tracks which are alternative versions previously featured on the two first demo tapes and recorded again in 2002. Besides the track “Funeral Winds from the North” (only included in “The Black Winter” demo) all the band’s early production is to be found in this LP. The sound is raw and hellish as fuck, being truly representative of the early nineties raw black metal that surprisingly came out from Sweden (not all the swedish bands focused on the melodic stuff). Regarding the album design I prefer the black and white drawing on the demo type with red marker over the title.
