NEW FOR 2009 ON BLACKMETAL.COM RECORDS LABEL!
We proudly present:
"Depression of Surtr" CD
Cult misanthropic Slavonic Black Metal from the Carpathian mountains
and the deep Underground of a Rivne region village in Ukraina.
Raw atmospheric Nordic-influenced style with a very personal touch inspired by BURZUM, and DARKTHRONE. A predominantly mid-paced, somewhat primitive and necro-ish execution with ringing distorted electric-guitar skirl and anguished grim vocals all contributing to the melancholy, utterly drepressive ['Post-Suicidal'] mood. MOLOCH's distinctive calibre of dark art elicits tangential, but positive comparisons to PEORDH, I SHALT BECOME, NAZGUL (Spain), and STRIBORG. The cosmic, delirium-inducing attack is even reminiscent of the classic "Dog's Blood Rising" by early CURRENT 93.
Unlike other Ukraine bands who defiantly reject Scandinavian culture, MOLOCH chooses to focus on Nordic and Teutonic influences such as Norse mythology and German literature. The majority of the tracks explore themes based on the Nine Worlds of Norse cosmology with titles such as "Svartalfaheimr", "Lyosalfaheimr", "Asaheimr", "Jotunheimr", "Helheimr", and "Vanaheimr". Highly-recommended for diehard fanatics of cult Black Metal, and definitely for those who bravely ignore the dross and mediocrity of mainstream culture, in search of extreme emotion and grim aural sensibilities....
