Gehenna - _Black Seared Heart_
(Holycaust, 1996)
by: Drew Snow (6 out of 10)
Ho hum, another demo of a now well-known black metal band pressed onto CD. Wait a second though, this one's a bit different. First of all, it's not on Necropolis (thank goodness). Second, there are some previously unreleased songs and demo versions of released songs to fill out the space and make it viable as a full-length, albeit at a paltry 32 minutes. What's on offer here is basically more of the same, demo tracks which aren't particularly good (that's why they were never released in the first place), and some songs you've heard before, but only with worse production and a few minor alterations from their album versions. Oh, and try to hold back your excitement, but there's an intro and two (yes two) outros to be heard as well. When it comes down to the bottom line, you have to ask yourself if you really need another album like this. If you're a big Gehenna fan, the answer of course would be yes, however, if you aren't a follower of these painted warriors, you'd be better off to stay away..
