Metgumbnerbone - For The Raven



Cassette, C90
UK, 1984
Ripped by Styggelse


Metgumberbone is mostly known as the author of the "Ligeliahorn" LP, released by a great label - a-mission records -, but quite boring as stated by Asmus Tietchens, who decided to offer his brilliant "Seuchengebiete" LP to the same label to show the difference ("After listening to this album I was convinced that I could deliver a better description of an atmosphere of emptiness and isolation than them, because firstly I'd be doing it without all that childish theatre, and secondly because I'd be able to describe it much better soundwise"). A remixed version of "Ligeliahorn" was later released on CDr and is available here.
"For The Raven" was probably recorded after "Ligeliahorn" and I like it better. According to Styggelse, this is an "unreleased cassette originally intended for release on Nekrophile Rekords in 1984".

Thanks for this! Speaking of A-Mission Records: hope to find a decent rip of the Possession LP one day.
