SALEM recorded their third and last demo on this day in 1983 at September Sound, Huddersfield. Salem won a "battle of the bands" at Huddersfield Polytechnic, following which they recorded the last demo at September Sound, Huddersfield, in March 1983, which demonstrated the maturing song writing of the band. Although a number of record companies expressed an interest in the music, the band imploded and played their last, sell-out gig in Hull on 31 May 1983. - Official biography.

22 Years Ago: NAZXUL release Totem (thy mark, my mark)

NAZXUL released their debut album on this day in 1995 through Vampire Records, the NSW label that first released SADISTIK EXEKUTION's The Magus in 1991. We have always considered our sound to be a part of the black metal cult and shall always remain that way. The authentic manner of our sound more than likely comes from each members contribution to our cause.

These signs were followed by great famine, and a little after those, that same year on 6th ides of January, the ravaging of wretched heathen people destroyed God's church at Lindisfarne. Ever since 1997 with Eld I think we have been going down that road more and more, towards a broader musical horizon, and not trying to repeat ourselves.- Grutle Kjellson / Enslaved interview, Cryptic Rock, 2015 ENSLAVED released their third album, Eld, on this day in 1997.

21 Years Ago: PAN.THY.MONIUM release Khaooohs & Kon-fus-ion

Just before I moved to Örebro, we started work on this...what was meant to be our last recording. The guys came up to Örebro to finish it off, with more overdubs and stuff, and after a while Relapse was interested in releasing it.I like this one more than Khaooos. It's got more epic moments and not so much unmotivated riffing. 3.7 out of 5- Dan Swanö, Prog Archives, 2011 PAN.THY.MONIUM released their last album, Khaooohs & Kon-fus-ion, on this day in 1996. Avant-garde death metal from Sweden!
