Xandril – "The Vision of Rotting Darkness: The Demos 1985-1988" DLP
Best known for their contribution to the classic ‘Teutonic Invasion’ compilation with the speed metal masterpiece ‘Terminal Breath’, Xandril are widely considered one of the greatest 80’s speed metal bands to never have released an album.
Xandril delivered a unique blend of raw and energetic German speed metal with a touch of sophistication at times bordering on progressive, complimented by the untamed, emotional vocals of female frontman Bettina Paschen.
This double LP includes the lesser known ‘Rehearsal ’85’ demo along with the classic demos ‘Rotting Paradise’, ‘The Vision’ and ‘Perfect Darkness’, plus previously unreleased tracks from the ‘Rehearsal ’85’ session. All tracks have been restored from original tapes and mastered for vinyl by Patrick W. Engel at Temple Of Disharmony. The LPs are packaged in a gatefold cover with 4 page insert featuring loads of unseen photos, detailed band history and lyrics for the first time! Each DLP is hand numbered to 500 copies, and also includes a picture card in tribute to Xandril bass player André Philipp who sadly passed away earlier this year, each card individually signed by the other members of the band.
