NARSAMUM (Malaysia)
Dream Of Death
Muzik Box Productions, 1999

I've been waiting to hear something from this band since their demo 1994. I didn't have the chance to hear it but after reading few interview, I get a bit of info about them. Later in 1997, there's been a plan to release a split tape with Thailand's Heretic Angel but due to problems on the Thai's side, the plan are cancelled. At first I was quite hesitate to buy it. The price is not the usual price for cassette EP, a bit expensive for me. Having to fork out RM 12 for only 4 songs, I expect something killer from them. I guess there are tracks re-recorded from their old demo like "Blasphemy..." (also the title of their demo) for example. The music is death metal, melodic at times and has a bit of greek (Rotting Christ) riffs. The songs are not bad but doesn't have the extra energy for me to keep on listening.
