Side project of the mighty Black Lourde of Crucifixion, Hearse issued two demos between 1997-1999 before being put to rest. These long-lost slabs of Funeral Death / Doom Metal were re-issued as a mere 400 copies LP-only release in 2003 and then, sadly forgotten again afterwards.

Once again exhumed from oblivion, those demos will expose a grim, raw facet of Death / Doom not commonly found in other works of the genre... Pace is mostly mid-tempo to slow, but the drumming is quite active. The overall sound is rough and compliments the dark riffs and melodies, creating a gloomy and dreadful atmosphere, you have to experience yourself to fully grasp it.

This new CD-version will contain both demos, liner notes and old pictures from the band. 8 tracks are featured, which altogether make for a playing time of 50 + minutes. Cover artwork by Mark Riddick.
