Pacta Daemoniarum / Crasse
(Hospital - HOS232) 2xCD $17.00
Diapsiquir's two remarkable double-albums on End All Life warrant the term avant-garde, without regard for blueprints, a rare honor. An obscure and controversial French outlaw black metal band known for their decadent activities, this 2xCD contains their first two demos -- Pacta Daemoniarum from 1999 and Crasse from 2001 -- both of which spit twisted, vociferous, manic vocals over complex, orchestrated, highly distorted chaotic metal. It never rests and is fully absorbed in the savage, sexually violent, drug-laden nihilism of French subculture.
