And one more album from the 1st hald of 90's that didn't get much publicity in the time of its release, but became highly valued today. Demilich were one of the few early death metal bands that managed to play really outstanding music without being super technical. Surely, there are loads of much more technical and atonal DM bands all around the world, and the use of extremely guttural vocals isn't something unique either, but nothing can be compared with the completely otherworldly and bizarre atmosphere offered by "Nespithe". Just look at the song titles - like in case with Abu Lahab's "As Chastened Angels...", they're as weird as the music itself. And what's the best about all the releases from Demilich - they're all freely available off their official page in a variety of formats (mp3, ogg, flac):
