Wyrd - Unchained Heathen Wrath demo '00


Today I'm sharing another one of my all time favorite demos. I believe everybody knows this band, but in case you don't - here's short introduction: Wyrd comes from Finland, the band was formed in 1997 under the band name Hellkult and in 1998 they changed name to Wyrd. Band features members from many other well known Finnish bands such as Azaghal, Lathspell, Oath and Valar (just to name a few). Unchained Heathen Wrath is band's first demo released under the band name Wyrd, it was released in 2000 by Chanteloup Creations as a tape limited to 200 copies. It was also released as a CD by Dragonthrone Productions.

There are 7 tracks on this demo tape with total length of around 30 minutes, and the style is pretty unique mix of black/doom and raw black metal. It is kind of like a unique mix between Forgotten Woods and Ildjarn. My favorite song on this demo is third track titled Hel which sounds like some Viking black/doom metal and is one of the most memorizable songs in black metal, riffs are truly amazing with very strange singing vocals and loud, amazing bass lines. If you find yourself enjoying this song, I'd recommend you to listen to Rautavaris - their style is quite similar to this song and it's a very good Finnish black metal band.

Conclusion is - this demo has already leaked on web long ago in high quality, but I'm sharing my rip today because I really love this demo and would recommend you to listen to it.
