When The Epidemic Arrived/Worst Afflicted Rapture

(Legion Blotan - BLOTCD01) CD $10.00

The French black metal horde’s first two dark and incredibly well recorded demo albums on one CD. Nearly 50 minutes of mid-paced, diseased black metal with agonizing and painful high pitched screams. “Epidemia Mortaliis are grim and true and raw,” according to Aquarius, “and as with most black buzzers, owe much to their mighty Scandinavian forbears, but … EM … have their own distinct and slightly skewed take on black metal, which results in a sound both buzzing and brutal, but also stumbling and weirdly lo-fi.”
