The Day Man Lost

Carnage's 1989 demo The Day Man Lost tape is one of my favorite pre-'90 Swedish Death Metal demos. Fuzzy, crusty proto-krush that comes off way cooler than Dark Recollections, their only "real" album. The bass breakdown in "Aftermath" is just beautifully fucked up. The Day Man Lost is so crippling and just over four minutes. Listen to it over and over again.

Drippy hand lettering, mushroom cloud, and crooked cut-and-paste all crammed onto one tape cover - this must be good.

Brings back fond memories of when death metal was king. Before the Norsk black metal it was the Swedes and their death metal. Is it a drum machine?

Alesis HR-16! Man, I wish this had been the music on Dark Recollections, I'd still have it.

Death metal as it should be- short, sweet and brutal.

Thanks again, Aesop
