Thus Defiled 'Blasphemous Coven' Demo 1993

Firstly a big thank you to Balbulus for allowing me to contribute to the The Woodman's Axe. I have a lot of demos that I will be uploading over the coming weeks and months but here is a fairly rare one to kick off with.

THUS DEFILED from Hove, near Brighton in the UK, began their career as a Blackened Death Metal act in the early 90's before getting a record deal and changing their style to the full on Black Metal sound we know them for today.

This is their 1993 demo Blasphemous Coven, ripped in 320kps and complete with full inlay scan in the folder. ENJOY.


1. Intro
2. Invocation 
3. Desolation Of Twilight
4. Ascend...

Thanks Witchclan, and welcome to the blog.

I saw Thus Defiled back in the 90s at the Devil's Church club at the George Robey in London. Some great amateur firebreathing!

Thanks Witchclan, my dub of this demo was poor quality so I'm happy to grab yours.

Good to see you contribute some old demos here.

Cool - no problem at all.I have a VAST collection of demos I have collected over the years so gradually I will keep adding.

Hi, I don't know if this blog is active anymore (so many have gone in the last year or so..) but i was wondering if this Thus Defiled Demo could be re-uploaded to anywhere, or if someone could send it to me.
It would be heavily appreciated.
I searched back in 2002 for them, and a couple of times after, but never found them, or downloads for them; then i miss this and other blogs posting the second demo! Recently found the second demo, but still after this one - and a rehearsal tape that went under my radar too.

@Ruptured Souls:

I've now posted the demo at my blog so you can grab it from there. Hope that's fine with Balbulus & Witchclan!

Yes, that's fine with me, I have no immediate plans to re-up any links.
