The Meads of Asphodel - The Early Years

4/10

There aren't a whole lot of demo recordings that I really find essential, and these early demos from the Meads of Asphodel definitely don't qualify. Metatron hadn't found his sarcastic vocal style yet, and the synthesizers are just beyond cheesy and don't gel with the metal parts at all. There are also a few unreleased tracks and bonus tracks that only appeared on some editions, but they just aren't as strong as the actual album tracks.
I just don't have much to say about this release, so I'll just say that it's for diehard fans only and leave it at that.
