SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Those Who Caress The Pale is a re-release of Ved buens Ende´s demo from 1994 with the addition of a bonus track. This re-release is from 1997. Ved Buens Ende is a very innovative and strange Norwegian band with close ties to the Norwegian black metal scene. Their music can´t be characterized as black metal though and I would label It avant garde extreme metal instead. Ved Buens Ende only made a sole album in 1995 called Written in Waters and Those Who Caress The Pale was the demo that led to a record contract with Misanthropy records.

Ved Buens Ende consisted, at the time of the release of this demo, of Vicotnik (Dødheimsgard, Code, Manes, Naer Mataron) on guitar and vocals, Skoll ( Arcturus, Fimbulwinter, Ulver) on bass and the infamous Carl-Michael Eide (Dødheimsgard, Aura Noir, Cadaver Inc, Infernö, Virus, Satyricon, Ulver) on drums, guitar and vocals. This was also the threepiece who recorded Written in Waters.

Ved Buens Ende has a unique sound that is both aggressive and depressive/ melancholic at the same time. The music sometimes remind me of the most raw Voivod albums mixed with primitive black metal but with strange twist and turns. This is really a twisted and perverted dark band. If you´re a fan of Written in Waters this re-release of the demo is a very worthy purchase. The Carrier of Wounds and You That May Wither are also featured on the debut album but the rest are new ( old) songs that didn´t make it unto Written in Waters. Both A Mask In The Mirror, The Plunderer and the instrumental Those Who Caress The Pale are must haves for the fans of Ved Buens Ende while the bonus track which has been added to this re-release called Insects part I is really useless. Insect noises and tortured screaming and yelling for a couple of minutes before there is silence for about 4 minutes until the insects noises reappear. Totally and utterly useless IMO. Some might find some perverted joy in this but to me this is annoying.

The sound quality isn´t professional but it´s still very good IMO. Not in a traditional sense but the sound does help bring out the right emotions in the music. This is a very low-fi production even though I have heard worse.

The cover art with the small odd sculptures suits the music well.

Ved Buens Ende has in the last year become one of my favorite extreme metal bands. They are so unique and strange that you won´t hear anything like them anywhere. Even though this is a demo and there are only three new songs worth my time the quality of those three songs plus the two songs which also appear on Written in Waters are so high that I can´t help reward this twisted release with 4 stars. It´s really a shame that Ved Buens Ende only ever recorded one album, but on the other hand the cult which surrounds the band is so much bigger for that exact reason. Those Who Caress The Pale is an excellent addition to their sparse discography and to your avant garde extreme metal collection.

3 stars 'Those Who Caress The Pale' - Ved Buens Ende (6/10)

Although released officially in 1997, 'Those Who Caress The Pale' is a demo that predates Ved Buens Ende's full-length opus. It does seem somewhat redundant to hear this album after hearing the fulfilled vision of the band on 'Written In Waters', but as it stands, 'Those Who Caress The Pale' is a very good demo that shows plenty of the potential that the band would later go on to realize in greater detail. As anyone who has heard 'Written In Waters' can attest, the band has a very unique sound to them, one that twas years ahead of its time and much different from the typical Norwegian black metal that the band was surrounded with. While 'Written In Waters' makes quite a bit of the material here obsolete, there is thankfully enough stuff not yet heard to make this a worthy listen of its own.

Much of the music here is dominated by abrasive, harsh riffs and the decidedly un-metal crooning of vocalist Czral. Many of the songs here would later be re-recorded for 'Written In Waters', with musicianship and especially the vocal performance being tightened up for it. Here, I get the sense that the band is just as capable as they were on the full-length, but they were less meticulous about it, moreso wanting to get the music out, rather than focusing on the details. This shows, and much of this demo is muddy and obscured by a fairly thin production that some would say was typical of the black metal scene of the time. The standout tracks here are the same ones that managed to find their way onto the full-length, although for a Ved Buens Ende fanatic looking for a few extra minutes of dissonant riffing and maniacal vocals, this recording is far beyond what I would normally expect of a demo.
