Geistus

Geistus is the black metal alter-ego of Mike Scheidt of Eugene, Oregon doom legends, Yob. Mr. Scheidt obviously was moved by the works of Von, Blasphemy, Beherit and other such early kult luminaries, however Geistus has a bit more going for it in the skill department. This was released in very limited numbers by The Funeral Agency, which was the short-lived cassette only label that I used to do. Geistus has expanded to two members and has recently played some live engagements around Oregon. This tape kills.

This rips. I only had the tape, but no tape deck since I moved. Thanks A.

Whoa, I bought several Funeral Agency releases (Angkor Vat, Varghokarghasmal, both Lascowiecs) a few years ago, and I've been reading your blog for quite a while, so there's a pretty awesome synergy happening there! I'm glad to know of these releases that I missed out on.
