Bone Alley--Demo{N}  2014  pro cdr   {Cold  Raw Rec.}
BoneAlley  comes  out  of  the  Canadian  black metal  scene .Bone Alley  play  very low/raw  sounding  black metal  that  is  pretty  hard to  hear  {unless you  turn the  sound  way up} usually  I  love  this  style  of  demo/raw sounding  production  but  this  is  too  much .The  music  is  decent  with  some good  riffs  and  drumming    but  the  low quality  of the  production kills  it.Hopefully  the  band  can  do  a  better  job  with  their  next  release.
