DISCIPLES OF BELIAL–Goat Of Mendes(Praxis-UK-1995)

Horrific evil technoid mixed with death metal in this classic vinyl by Disciples Of Belial aka Jason Mendonca . In the late 80s Jason joined David Gray to form the satanic metal-band Salem Orchid (the previous incarnation of Akercocke).
The band fell apart in the early 90s. At this point, Jason moved to North London where he gained an interest in purely electronic music and put out records as part of Disciples Of Belial and Lorenz Attractor. He slowly moved back into satanic metal sounds around '95/'96 when he met up with David again. Soon after Akercocke was born. Originator of the infamous VFM parties in the UK.
A small review on Discogs by DjDstroy: This record is a big classic. Goat Of Mendes is one of the best tunes iv ever heard, so simple but so perfect with very pounding crystal clear bass lines throughout, the tune plays at a very fast pace giving the listener very little time to even breath. the record is full of evil satanic sounds and voices. not for the faint-hearted... ENJOY!
Praxis is a label and record shop for harsh experimental electronic music led by Christoph Fringeli based in Berlin (first located in London/UK, then in Berlin/Germany, then in Basel/Switzerland, now again in Berlin/Germany), its official webpage is here.
Enjoy it.
