Alda - demo (2009)

ALDA "demo"

Year: 2009
Genre: Cascadian Black Metal
Country: USA
Label: self-prod.

Track List:
  1. The Seed and the Hailstone
  2. The Evergreen Womb
  3. Fimbulwinter

Alda are a new 4-piece Cascadian black metal band. I found their demo (which was available for free as a  CD-R at their live shows, btw) in the same blog where I've found albums by Mania. If you like WITTR or Skagos, you'll definitely like Alda. Their sound isn't very brutal, but rather melodic, and despite they aren't comparable with the best Cascadian metal bands, they're a very promising band. Can't wait to hear their first LP (which was released only a month ago).

I haven't found any explicit political statements by them. But according to this text, they're undoubtedly environmentalists, so I think it's safe to post their demo under the "green anarchist black metal" label. Overall it seems like their beliefs very much resemble the beliefs of aforementioned bands (WITTR, Skagos, etc.)

  1. Do you think you can find/post their first LP? I can't find it anywhere and would love to listen it to. This demo is a marvelous piece of work.
