Limited-Edition (only 500 made available) RE-MASTERED IMPORT ['Real'] CD of "Traurer" manufactured and distributed internationally by Sabbathid / Dozin Destroyer Records Japan! (2009)
Raw primitive Slavonic Black Metal ['Elite'] cult from Rivne, Ukraine! With some long dark-ambient tracks, juxtaposed against inadvertantly trance-inducing repetitive drum-machine, and atmospheric guitar distortion, MOLOCH's overall attack can be described somewhere in-between a VINTERRIKET meets GANZMORD / DODSFERD (without the "roll") blend, and somewhat reminiscent of early (old) BRANIKALD demos (which were originally released by now-defunct Autistiartilli Art, the elite NSBM label from Canada), Italy's ENTHRONING SILENCE, or fellow countrymen MANIERISME, the Japanese horde who were influenced by MUTIILATION and KRISTALLNACHT. An alternative facet of hypnotic 'Necro' BM recommended only for diehard [Underground] collectors.
After near-countless releases (including multi-discs 'Box-Sets') on many different labels (including the band's own De Profundis Prod.), "TRAURER" was the first domestic release (available from Nevada, USA based ClovenHoof Productions, but only on CDR), and followed by "Depression of Surtr" released by BlackMetal.com on actual ['Real'] CD. This new IMPORT ['Real'] CD of "Traurer" is manufactured and internationally distributed by Sabbathid / Dozin Destroyer Records Japan features new cover-art and 'improved' layout artwork, in addition to 2 BONUS TRACKS! The first song "Herbst" is an alternate edit taken from the "Lebensabend" (2008) Box-Set. The second song "Hail Black Metal Krieg!!" is also a new 'previously-unreleased' version that is different from other editions of "Traurer".
