Morbid Winds – The Ruin of Forgotten Desolation [Demo]

morbid winds – the ruin of forgotten desolation [demo]

Info

A proper little winters blast of early 90’s Black Metal worship, as Polish Black Metal band Morbid Winds deliver their second demo release entitled ‘The Ruin of Forgotten Desolation’. If you discount the low key but evil sounding intro and outro tracks, ‘The Ruin of Forgotten Desolation’ features four relatively short doses of  gripping Black Metal fury with murky but not full on lo-fi production. ‘Nocturnal Portal’ has an almost bouncy feel to it’s guitar play similar to some early Darkthrone whilst ‘Flesh Temples Annihilated’ introduced some very pleasing and haunting synth melodies into the background whilst anguished vocals rise out of the nocturnal gloom that is Morbid Winds sound. As the demo winds along it’s bleak and morbid journey it becomes rife with early 90’s atmosphere and melody, whilst the raging, abrasive guitar work in ‘Into Eternity’ adds to the aura with a grinding, savage darkness. There is even the faint blows of medieval trumpets sounding, maybe calling the dark hordes to some nocturnal battle. An absolutely stonking demo this from the depths of the Polish underground, and available on CD or Cassette through Worship Tapes and Morbid Chapel Records. It came out in 2020 but there may still be a few copies around, I’m going to go and hunt them out… (Luke Hayhurst)
