Demoncy - Within the Sylvan Realms of Frost LP
Definitive reissue of Demoncy’s 3rd album of USBM, recorded in 1996. “Within Sylvan..” stands out in Demoncy’s catalog as being atmospherically distinctive and follows a different, more majestic style than featured on ‘Joined in Darkness’ or ‘Faustian Dawn’. The guitar tone and masterful use of keyboards give the tracks a freezing and cold atmosphere usually reserved for Scandinavian bands from that time period. Still the songs feature Demoncy’s no-frills song writing style and their solid rhythms might remind some of mid-period Legion of Doom (Greece). Finally this album is given a quality reissue treatment (appropriate, non-photoshopped cover artwork!) with a gatefold jacket and heavy vinyl.
