This demo was sent to me by Media Tree Recordings, who found it suitable for my blog. Æsahættr is a BM project from Montreal (Quebec, Canada). Though not overtly political (lyrics focus more on anti-christian themes and liberation from religious thought), Æsahættr is still radical black metal. The cassette can be purchased from Media Tree Recordings in North America (, or Sunyata Recordings in Europe. ( The myspace page is:


  1. oh yes, side b is awesome. you definitely need to get that. this demo is one of my favorite bm releases this year.

  2. hell yea

    was waitin for this

  3. sometimes quite "punky". i like it!

  4. Reminds me of Nattens Madrigal at times.

  5. It's worth noting that all song titles relate to Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy, the first book better known as The Golden Compass.

  6. Æsahættr was actually the name of the subtle knife, i think. Great trilogy. Great album, too, of course

  7. The track on side b means "the last knife" in greek. "Machaira" is a poetic way to call the knife.
