revel in flesh

Proud new addition to the Skull Fucked tape collection in the form of this original edition of the "Only Shreds Remain" demo from the mighty Nihilist. Self released back in 1989. That's the year I started primary school. Bare bones presentation, but I guess that these things really only served to really spread the bands name back then. Just to get the music into circulation. Nothing more.
Now this might not be the best of the three proper tapes that this band did before they signed to Earache Records and got massive with the new name, but out of just about all of the late 80's/early 90's Swedish death demos from that trading scene, "Only Shreds Remain" is a total genre classic. My absolute favourite Nihilist/Entombed song can be found here too. I plan to chase down the other two Nihilist tapes over time as well.
