In case you’re not familiar with the concept of “Freebie of the Week”, here’s a brief explanation… Each week I go on a little hunt through the vast wastelands of the Internet in search of FREE and LEGAL downloads. So, all of the downloads featured here will be obtainable through trustworthy means… and they’ll be guilt-free. For example, I will only ever feature music available from official band websites, profiles (such as MySpace, Reverbnation or Facebook) and Last.fm (or equivalent).
I’m ashamed to say that I have only recently found out about this band… But, they are awesome, so I will play the crap out of this album/EP/whatever it is to make up for it
Heathen Deity’s “For The Glory of Satan- Walpergisnacht” is available to download FOR FREE (or you can name your price if you want to send some cash the band’s way) by clicking here. Alternatively, you can just use the widget below:
Heathen Deity formed in May 1999 by Vocalist Dagon, with the sole intention to create the true essence of English black metal and to also pay tribute to the masters of the genre that had inspired them…
The band recorded their first demo, entitled “Whispers of the Unlight” in the Summer of 1999. This recording was the only one they did utilising keyboards, the band wasn’t really happy with this recording and has not seen the light of day…
The following months the band performed at a handfull of venues within the UK, the bands popularity grew and they made contact with such UK black metal acts as the mighty “Hecate Enthroned” which they played with on numerous occasions.
The band after a few line-up changes and a busy rehearsal schedule then entered Purple Studios in Norwich, England to record an e.p. to be called, “Walpugisacht, For the Glory of Satan” in the Summer of 2002. This release comprised of tracks from the first demo and new tracks written by Azrael and Dagon. This release received great acclaim in the press, being reviewed by many fanzines and Terrorizer magazine.
The band then set out across the UK to promote the E.P. Headlining a few shows they proved to their following they would not lie down and die. The band then played a great show at the London venue “Electrowerks” in support of “Hell Born” and “Reign of Erebus”.
Now in 2010, after a hiatus the band are set to finally record the debut album. With the writing force of Azrael and Dagon once again firmly in place and the drum stool occupied by long time Heathen Deity drummer Sathan the fires of hell are again re-lit…
