Demo 2003

Rated 3.75/5 (75%) (4 Votes)

Another dose of this kick ass viking metal powerhouse, this is what actually started it all. Demo 2003 was released about two years prior to Turis Fratyr, and it has all the emotion and brilliance that the later would have. It's kind of hard to believe this is a demo, the quality is about as good as the album. This is of course a lot shorter than Turis Fratyr, only having 8 tracks, 3 of which are interludes. Besides two of the interludes being different from the album, the song Nach dem Winter does not appear on Turis Fratyr for whatever reason, which is sort of weird because it fits perfectly.

If you really like Turis Fratyr and are looking for something different from Equilibrium, you will not find that here. This is just a warm up for the explosion of Turis Fratyr; but if you are a huge viking metal fan, especially a band like this, you might want to get your hands on this. This is one of the best demos I have ever heard; and in a sense shows you that Turis Fratyr was not a fluke.
