#159 Grimwod - Humanities Last Judgement
This is a tape I purchased and ripped a while ago but forgot about, as you do. I picked this up as it was the only release on Putrescence Noire that I couldn't find anywhere. Was I disappointed? Hell-fucking-no.
Starting with a 10 minute long metal track that invokes punk and metal, this tape segues into an archaic-sounding ambient number that reminds me VERY strongly of the first Mortiis tape "A Song of a Long Forgotten Ghost". Not only does it have the same tonality and feel to it, it even has a crackling effect from the tape rip (sorry about that) which I was unable to reduce - however, it adds charm to the ancient sound of it, so bonus, I guess.
I'll apologise for the quality of the later tracks. The rip almost sounds slightly warped, like a REALLY old cassette, but when the music is this good, who the hell really cares?
