Zorn
Rehearsal Tape 2001
[Independent]


As with many European bands, Zorn's sound can be traced back to the early Norwegian scene. In this case, one can hear a heavy Mayhem influence, both in the guitar patterns (Euronymous) and in the vocals (Dead). Production is purposefully harsh but actually well done on what is probably a 4 or 8-track device. One can not comment on their ideology, because the j-card for this tape is minimal. Satanic symbols are employed and various audio samples from the Third Reich are used as an intro to the tape and an outro.
