Belkardt - "To Reach The Silent Black Monolith"

Pretty awesome and old Russian black metal. Aside from that, little to be shared in terms of information about the band and release. This is a demo from Belkardt dating back to 1996 which was self released. I would actually really like to own the cassette demo for this, it's really great black metal. Awesome plodding drums with superior fuzzed out melodic guitar work and nice gurgly vocals kind of drifting in and out of the mix. A couple mammoth 10+ minute tracks, one 8+ minute number, and a closing 2+ minute song. Half the allure of this particular .zip is the sort of worn cassette sound that comes through in the rip - it really adds to the character of an otherwise already great black metal ritual.
