ALTAR DE FREY - Original Sin - Anthology of the Early Years - LP

19,91 €


Altar De Fey originated in San Francisco in the early 1980s as part of the emerging musical form that would come to be known as Deathrock. Out of the Zeitgeist flash of 70’s Punk Rock the new sound took the darkest elements of the counter culture into the ever deeper, gloomier, and more mature territory. The original incarnation passed through a rotating cast of characters centered strongly by the vision and experimental guitar of founding member Kent Cates. Eschewing the conventional chord progression/solo form entirely Cates’s guitar spins strands of melody and rhythm, tone, and texture in a style that to this day is all his own. The mood was perfected with the innovative tribal drumming of Aleph Kali and Butch Mason’s haunted confrontational vocals. Though the band had a strong base of support, no original recordings were ever released and the young members carried on into new musical endeavors. By 1988 ADF disbanded. This unique compilation brings you 11 original ADF songs recorded between 1984-1986 (demos, rehearsal records, live records). If you are into classic Christian Death, 45 Grave, Kommunity FK, Burning Image, etc.
