Awakening

Releases like this are Cosmic Hearse's Raison d'Etre. Swimming Through The Past was the only official release from Downer Dutch death/doom delinquents, Awakening, Just two primitive, and rather teenage sounding cuts from a band obviously trying to figure out what they want to be. There were a million bands like this in the early '90s, so they tended to get ignored, now in 2011 people work very hard (and often fail) to capture this sort of ancient spirit and atmosphere.

Just discovered this recently; Paragon Records had (possibly still have) copies of this 7" in their distro for CHEAP. Really good stuff, leave it to the damn Dutch...
