Well, yes, here you got it, the demo tracks of the death metal beast Deicide when they were previously known as Amon. This release is divided into two parts: the Sacrificial Suicide demo, and the Feasting the Beast demo, so for all the morons who keep asking "Is there a misprint in the track listing? Why is Sacrificial Suicide named two times here?" i reply "No, is not a fuck up, the song was recorded twice in two entirely different demos".

Now, let us comment on the first demo. Production wise, it isn't too different from Deicide's debut. Interpretation wise, it isn't too different either. The songs are almost identical to the versions that ended up on the first LP. There are six songs in total. Nothing too spectacular.

Now, for the second demo. Like i mentioned in the title of this review, THESE are the ones that are worth the price of adquisition. The Feasting the Beast demo starts with one fucking piece of evil ambience track, with some screams and beast sounds. Then the first proper song kicks out, and comes as a real surprise for those who expected something similar to the first demo. This isn't similar at all! What you're hearing here is the most raw, primitive, animal sounding material Deicide has ever made in its career. Emphasis on the "animal" part. This isn't just death metal anymore, it's black/death played in the finest fashion! This sounds like four enraged demons picking up instruments and recording a demo of the most brutal shit they could figure out to do, all under vocals that resemblance a combination of pig, dog and elephant barf vomiting over an overdrived mic. Yes, is really that cool!!!!! Fuck all the new Deicide material, this is by far the Beast in its prime. If it wasn't such a fucking short demo, i would give it a 93% easily. Buy it or die, cunts!!
