I have always been curious about them but never got the chance to try and would like to buy instead of listening from Youtube for previews. Can anyone recommend me which of theirs I should try first of the following:

1) Thus Spake Zaratustra
2) Cult Of The Black Pentagram
3) Glory for Centuries

I know that 2 and 3 has been released together in one release, so it narrows down the option to either 1 or 2 and 3.

There's also a cd/tape that compiles the three releases. Here you have 1 hour of music so really you should try to listen to all of their material. I personally prefer Cult of the Black Pentagram. If you're interested to know more about them there was an insightful intervie in the last Sinister Flames zine.

I don't like Glory for Centuries very much tbh. Their later stuff is better.

If you mean the "Liber Diabolus: 1991-1996" compilation, I have heard it sounds terrible/probably sourced from MP3's.

I'd like to know how the Witching Hour LP represses sound.

All the reissues suffer from horrible digital noise reduction, making almost everything sound like cheap mp3s, especially the first two releases.

Such a shame, considering what a great band they were.

Anyone with the original tapes that can share good rips?

Yes that's the one I meant, I had no idea since I own the originals (though I'm sure I have this Liber Diabolus on tape). So there are no authentic sounding re-release of Xantotol?

Wild guess but for three orig tape would cost around 60 euros total...

More according to discogs/ebay Smile
Anyway I don't collect tapes anymore/don't spend more than 10 € for this format.
I remember there was a blog with a nice tape rip of the second demo, but the link has expired.

I prefer the two demos, but everything is great.

If someone does have good quality tape rips (.wav format) drop me a line as I'd very much like to do a proper clean-up/remaster of them. Both re-releases sound dreadful.

^You heard the man!

I just own the 2009 digi reissue of Thus...
The material is so strong that I didnīt notice any sound issues but havenīt listened to it for years tbh.

I have a shirt in XL with the digupack design in storage, anybody in need hit me up.

I own original copies of all three. Give me some time over the holidays to rip them, and I'll send you the files at the beginning of 2018. Don't hesitate to remind me of that in case you shouldn't have heard back from me till mid-January.

Just checked my external hard drive, and as it turns out I ripped "Thus Spake Zaratustra" and "Cult of the Black Pentagram" already.

@ Devoured Death: Can you also work with the .flac format or do you specifically prefer .wav? In case of the latter, I'll do new rips. If not, I can send you the files straight away. They're pure, straight rips from start to finish, no track separation, no editing, no nothing, and I'd dare to say that my copies still are in pretty great shape audio quality-wise.

My Witching Hour "Thus Spake..." LP sounds horrible. The compressed watery cymbal sound drives me nuts. I'd love some rips from the original tapes if any of those are floating around.

I've got Liber... and I don't find that it sounds terrible. Then again, I don't have originals to compare it to.
