BURIED BENEATH "The Last Rays Of The Moon" 1998 CD
In early 1998 the CD was finally released. The curse is lifted! Vindication has been achieved! The CD contains over 65 minutes of music with an 8-page layout complete with band history, a personal diatribe and old photos. To learn more, just read on...........

BURIED BENEATH was a black/death metal band that
I, Mikael, played guitar in from it's formation in May 1992 until it's
demise in August 1995. Basicly, I was never personally satisfied with the
results of our demos, especially the vocals. When I wrote a song, I would
bring it to the band with a certain "vision" in mind. I never fully attained
this vision. After the band split up, me and Tim (bassist) began a new
band called NIGHT
CONQUERS DAY which subsequently went on to record 2 CD's that
came out on HAMMERHEART Records in 1998 and 1999. But I still was bothered
by the waste of time and energy that BURIED BENEATH had been, and with
little recognition. BURIED BENEATH had also been fucked over twice. Our
planned debut CD in 1994 never came out (the
recording was released at the end of that year as our third demo),
and a 7"ep planned for 1996 also never came out due to a slovakian assfuck
who ripped us off! So in early 1997 I pulled out the reels for our 1993
and 1994 demos and "fixed" up the songs that I wrote. All of the vocals
have been completely re-recorded (except for one song which retains
original vocalist Jason) and keyboards have been added to the older
songs that lacked them due to other members disinterest in them back then.
A totally new mix was done at Watchmen Studio and now these songs sound
more like they should've been......as I envisioned them to be.......dark,
brutal and atmospheric Black-Death Metal; which is what Buried Beneath
had always tried to encapsulate. A contract was signed with MAJESTIC UNION
Records to finally put Buried Beneath onto CD. These new versions of old
songs are joined by a track deleted from the NIGHT CONQUERS DAY debut CD
recording sessions because it was actually a song composed while BURIED
BENEATH was still actively rehearsing (consider it a CD bonus track). The
CD layout has been put together by me and the Empress. The coverart (and
CD title) is the art that was supposed to be on the never-released 7"ep.
The CD booklet features art from various old bios, some never used art
that was supposed to go in the never-released CD'94, plus some old band
photos and typed lyrics. MAJESTIC UNION Records then acquired the assistence
of english label DARK TRINITY Productions to press the CD's. So both labels
collaborated on this release. There is also a Cassette MC version in Eastern
Europe available. I got sent a copy of it, it's pretty fuckin' cool! They
changed the layout to adapt it to the cassette version. One song was deleted
though (the NCD song)
Although BURIED BENEATH is R.I.P., once more we arise from the dead to devour the living one last time before returning to the grave to be forever buried beneath the ages.......this time not so forgotten. The curse is lifted. Listen and experience.
