#173 Dark Virgin - Promo '93

Here's some more from the fabled wants list talked about previously. This is the only release from the French act known as Dark Virgin. They broke up shortly after this, and in all honesty I am not too surprised.

I had really high hopes for this release - considering it's age, it precedes all of the well known French stuff, and is even dated before the LLN material (Except Moevot - but I doubt this group knew of them back in 1993...)

It's all irrelevant as to be honest, this is nothing  more than interesting and fills a great niche. It's a good job this wasn't a reflection of the zeitgeist of the time, otherwise the French circles as we know them would have been utter shit.

Scans included.

  1. I can't say if it's much better than Chapel of Ghouls, Zelda or even the 1st Belkétre demo (which is dated on that exact year) but i can say that is quite different.

    Pity that the quality of the recording somehow hinders the potential of this demo.
