1 Review for 'Vlad Tepes - Celtic Poetry'
As most of these demos by Vlad tepes are very similar to each other and contain different rehersals/recordings of the same couple of song, i won't write a full review for all of the. Furthermore, i've already said most of the important stuff on reviews for the previous demos so i'll just stick to the highlights of each individual release!
First of all, all the songs apart from Under the Carpathian Yoke were released here for the first time in their discography and this version of Under The Carpathian Yoke is very much the same as the one released on The Return of the Unweeping. I stil maintain that you should check out the more recently remastered versions or the 1995 version on the split album with Belketre.
The first song Drink The Poetry Of The Celtic Disciple is a very cool song but a bit too overlong! the riffs and solos performed on this song are not that special and memorable so you might be bored in the middle of this song!
The 3rd song Diabolical Reaps almost sounds like a b-side to the Under the Carpathian Yoke song. They have a very similar riff and vocal approach. Overall, this song is very primitive indeed. The instruments and vocals are very loosely performed. This said, the final bass line for the song is incredible ( if you manage to hear it of course!)
The final song Misery Fear and Storm Hunger is probably the highlight of the album. An incredible nude type of loneliness and coldness. Even though the instruments and vocals are not tight (Again!) but the overall feeling of the song is agonizingly desperate!
Overall not a bad listen but it's still far away from their top-shelf materials!
