As the title says this is Atras demo collection!
It contains the complete first four demo tapes and all together it has 14 tracks, You surely get a lot of meat for your cash!
First thing that strikes me (soflty) is that these demos compared to the later albums is that they have more of a introverted melancholy and not so much in the way of anger etc, the production is more like tape demos(duh!) and has a lesser clear production but it works fine, just cram up the volume and listen carefully!!
I personally prefer the albums with their stronger feelings and hatefull vibes but this demos has many other qualities like the foggy & depressive internal landscapes.... that grows and twists under your skin.
I like myself best the first and the last demos mainly for the first one to be really muddy and gloomy and the last for speeding things up a bit and has more of a stingy sound & putrid emotion.
All in all this is Atras respectable but filthy birth and if you like Atra you should own it!
And this is cd is your only chance now.
