28 Years Ago: ROTTING CHRIST record the Decline's Return demo

These same three guys would go on to record several classic albums, but on this day in 1989 they were recording a rehearsal demo in Athens. Raw blasts of death metal/grindcore, or "music(?)" as they list it on the tape.

Ooouuuuaaaoooouuu...... How did you describe this demo???? Who traded it with you????????? Yes back to the tape trading season we were in contact with many bands and fanzines and when they were asking us for a demo tape we had nothing to send. So we took the decision to record a demo tape with a normal deck in order to trade with bands. So we did it...... But this demo is not an official release. Just a rehearsal demo as we used to say back then.
...
I prefer to remain them as cult releases, because everything that is appearing nowadays looses its feeling, looses its true underground feeling and this is something that we do not want.
