Strid - End of Life/Strid

Before depressive black metal became about taking your promo pictures with slit wrists and making your vocals sound like a crying owl there was Strid. From the vast snow covered lands of Norway Strid are often considered the first "depressive" black metal band, using simple guitar playing and audible bass melodies Strid were able to create somber and superb black metal. In this download you will get the 2 song self titled Strid EP and the one song End of Life Demo. Although both releases are slightly different in style they both convey the same emotions quite effectively.

1. Det Hviskes Blant Sorte Vinder
2. Nattevandring
3. End of Life
