Jucifer - Nadir

Jucifer's Nadir is a rough gem from the Grindcore Karaoke Bandcamp. Their self-recorded cassette from 1994 has been transferred to digital and mastered by Scott Hull. Extremely heavy sludge and doom combined with the dreamy, pop-influenced melodies from Gazelle Amber Valentine. As she writes in the charming liner notes included with the download, this is something pretty raw and sketchy. But it does paint a vivid picture of why Jucifer became the cult legends they are today. Here's a review of the re-issue from The Sleeping Shaman.

Update: Jucifer have started a fundraiser because their
engine needs a lot of repairs (there's only so much we can fix with duct tape +coathangers) we need funds so we can finish recording our new album and put it out for you guys (the right way... on incredible sounding vinyl with beautiful packaging)
You could also buy Nadir from the official Jucifer Bandcamp instead of downloading it for free. Just saying.
