Reverorum Ib Malacht - "What Do You Think Of The Old God, We Call Him Judas?" (2005)

Reverorum Ib Malacht's What Do You Think Of The Old God, We Call Him Judas? is an intimidating demo, not just because the band's name and album title are ridiculous, but also because the music is very disturbing. With lo-fi black metal being coaxed through dark ambient Judas becomes a very intense listening experience! The second of the 2 songs, "... And Bathe In Cold Holy Water," is a terrifying piece of music and can contest with any track off a Gnaw Their Tongues release.

Münn - "Selbstmordwald Rehearsal Demo" (2008)

In 2008, Woodsmokers, Münn, made their lone rehearsal demo available to earthlings before realizing that they were not fit for this world and hurriedly shriveled away back into the forest mists, never to be heard from again. Often reminiscent of a noisier Moss, Münn's Selbstmordwald Rehearsal Demo brings any listener to their quaking knees. This 80 minute demo is harsher than a hobo's morning breath, each song louder and heavier than the next. In short, the Selbstmordwald Rehearsal Demo offering is not of this world, in fact it is...

Raksha Mancham - "Phyidar" (1992)

Released in 1992, Phyidar is a compilation of Raksha Mancham's first three vinyls, plus extra songs. Rooted in Buddhist influences, this could be considered tribal drone - widely experimenting in ethnic sounds and styles. Poetry is recited over more modern guitar. Chants, moans, shouts, breaths, repetitive primal beats, and other ancient bellows and lyres transcend the listener to a proverbial time of solemn myth.

Aix Em Klemm - "Aix Em Klemm" (2000)

Aix Em Klemm's self-titled debut (and only) release is one that is never going to leave my headphones. With warm drones and exquisite melodies, Aix Em Klemm ranks among the likes of Stars Of The Lid (Adam Wiltzie is half of the band after all) or Loscil any day. Expect bright and therapeutic ambient atmospheres with the occasional fleeting airy vocals that aid in sweeping the listener away to another dimension.

Blaspherian - "Infernal Warriors Of Death" (2011)

A very grim release with excellent doom riffs and deadly vocals, Blaspherian plays old-school doom laced death metal that is very menacing. Infernal Warriors Of Death has an awesome album cover too so check it out and get into it:
