CORONER's 1986 "Death Cult" demo has been made available for download at MetalKult.com.
Originally part of the road crew for fellow countrymen CELTIC FROST, Swiss thrash trio CORONER — made up of bassist Ron Royce, drummer Marquis Marky and guitarist Tommy T. Baron — went on to become one of the most progressive extreme metal acts of the Eighties.
The connection between the Zurich band and CELTIC FROST was so strong, in fact, that CELTIC FROST frontman Tom G. Warrior offered to handle vocals for the emerging band's demo. Warrior and CORONER entered Switzerland's Magnetix studio on October 10, 1985, and nine days later they walked out with the impressive four-song 1986 release, "Death Cult".
While subsequent bootlegged CDs included the bonus tracks of "Arrogance in Uniform" and "Hate, Fire, Blood", the original four-track demo consisted of the following tracks: "Spectators of Sin", "Spiral Dream", "Aerial Combat" and "The Invincible". (Only "Spiral Dream" would make it onto CORONER's 1987 debut LP, "R.I.P.")
