Demonica = 2 CD, DVD Sleeve = (CD)
Before I begin I'd like to say that this album doesn't actually contain new Behemoth material. It is a limited edition 2CD box-set, compilation consisting of old demos, covers and some previously unreleased tracks from Behemoth's early days as a black metal band. These songs, like many of their demos, have been influenced by the bands from second wave of Norwegian black metal, notably Mayhem, Hellhammer and Darkthrone. The result is 2CDs worth of wonderfully haunting, atmospheric black metal reminiscent to that of early Emperor. Also present in the mix is a handful of fast-paced re-recorded tracks such as 'Transylvanian Forest' which are bound to attract the attention of fans of Marduk or Ragnarok; along with covers of Hellhammer's 'Aggressor' and Mayhem's 'Deathcrush'. The highlights include: the instrumental 'Goat with a Thousand Young', the relentless 'Marduk-esque' pummeling of 'Transylvanian Forest' , the eerily atmospheric 'From Hornedlands to Lindisfarne' and the melodic 'Thy Winter Kingdom'. The two cover tracks reveal the lengths to which the band was prepared to go to sound like their idols. So whilst their version of 'Deathcrush' may have persuaded me to see Mayhem in a different light, the cover of 'Aggressor' has done little to make me consider listening to Hellhammer.
