Pire Gah Hoath Raclir Od Jalpor

This 1993 demo from ancient Canadian death cult, Cremation, is fucking off the charts evil and bizarre. Cremation was formed in Edmonton, Alberta by J. Read (who went on to Conqueror and Revenge,) Rob Conway, and Owen Williamson with the sole intent of creating the most vile occult Death Metal ever. Lo-fi, archaic and absolutely mesmerizing, Pire Gah Hoath Raclir Od Jalpor is a brief but caustic stew of otherworldly demonic voices and a swirling vortex of pestilential riffing. The good folks at  Nuclear War Now have just released a brilliant near complete discography of Cremation demos. You would do wise to get one of those immediately, as NWN stuff is limited, goes fast, and seldom returns.

Nice to see see great Canadian metal. I'm going to go buy one of those demos right now : D

What the hell? This is great, and by great I mean it sounds like mental illness captured on tape. And I love those song titles. Though "The Moon, the Mist, and Baphomet" really should have been a love ballad.

I can tell from the cover that this fucking rules.

Nice. Nuclear War Now continues the hot streak. Five horns up to the Dark One, Aesop.

Speaking of NWN, if you are going to order the Cremation stuff, might as well go ahead and get the Sixx "Sister Devil" it is amazing. Hot streak indeed.

Reeks of Incantation. Awesome.

I know I am a douche for wanting to check this out just from looking at the damn cover... fuck it, I want to check this out.

I vote that with the Oprah leaving TV, we put Aesop on the tube.

Sounds like Corpse Molestation + Incantation + a tiny bit of Kataklysm. FFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUCK.

Grk! said...

Cheeeerrrrz.

Aesop is right about that Sixx record. Between that, the Citizen's Arrest reissue, Embrace of Thorns LP and the Perversor LP early this year, NWN is on a roll...

Thanks for posting this demo, Aesop. I have been putting off buying that demo collection, but after hearing this, I think I'll correct that.

Cremation lyrics dealt with various forms of forbidden knowledge and the path of the Antichrist
