CASSETTE TAPE. Early death metal had a particular intensity about it. Bands played their hearts out to show how much they meant it, because they had to – their credibility depended on it. Nowadays we know those albums as classics. And it’s not just nowadays – they’ve almost always been regarded that way. So it should surprise noone that musician fans would want to return to that ethos. That’s what Vircolac are all about, and all credit to them, because they’ve done it the right way.
