Mefisto - The Truth (1999, demos from 1986)














My favourite demo band of all times, this Swedish band played a mix of speed and black metal (first wave) that no other band has ever been close to. They were, along with Bathory one of real pioneering "extreme" bands in Sweden. Released two fantastic demos in 86, Megalomania & The Puzzle. Here they are re-released on one CD (or LP) in 1999.

Some of the best demos ever recorded. Fans of black/thrash will salivate over this.

HOLY FUCK!
I've always heard abouth those demos before, but I've never had a chance to ever hear them.
How in the FUCK is Mefisto's name not always mentioned right along with the likes of Bathory and Hellhammer when it comes to the history of the genre? This isn't some barely-audible poorly produced, poorly played “trve kvlt” bullshit that only scenesters would like, THIS IS A FUCKING MASTERPIECE. A real forgotten classic, that *never* should have been forgotten, it is to black metal what Death Strike was to death metal.

Awsome post, Corimngul! Thanks for sharing this one, it's a fuckin' gem…

I'm way too evil and true for a normal thank you for this masterpiece, so I say: Bathory, eeuh, Bulldozer, naaah, Hellhammer, well ofcourse, Mefisto, goddamn rulez!! I know these demos from tapetrading days but there were copied over and over again so all I had was some white noise with a band playing under water. Corehead666
