Carved Cross - Demo I & Demo II

Carved Cross - Demo I // Demo II
self released // Fallow Field

I wasn't sure if Demo I has been around and I got Demo II from Fallow Field today so I thought I might as well megapost it. Very, very raw black metal by means of Australia. I don't know how I feel about these releases. I don't want to throw around blanket terms but this seems generic; not a lot stands out. Both of these tapes are dark; the music, the recordings, the artwork. I've always thought of Australia to be a sunny place but not according to these releases.


  1. Dark...yeah I can definitely see that, but they have that melody-hidden-in-the-murk thing going on & some great rhythmic lurch in there as well. True of pretty much all their releases, though these demos are the darkest & murkiest of the bunch.
