CULT OF FIRE "Píseň černých Vran" 7" EP (Doomentia Records 2023)
From one master to another…MANIAC BUTCHER shouldn’t need any introduction: as one of the former eastern bloc premiere black metal band, they pioneered the kind of blasphemous and brutal yet instantly recognizable sound that till resonates within today’ scene. Former drummer-turned-guitar-player Vlad Blasphemer proved to be very instrumental in this crowning achievement and his tragic and sudden death on August 4th 2015 instantly put an end the band.
Gone but not forgotten… On the sixth anniversary of Vlad’s passing through the other side, Prague’s revered horde CULT OF FIRE recorded a cover of MANIAC BUTCHER’s “Píseň černých Vran”, originally included on the band’s third album from 1997, Krvestreb. Impressed by the result, a full blast of late 90’s black metal majesty, DOOMENTIA stepped in to offer to release it on a very special one-sided 7 inch, featuring all the lyrics and one of Mark Riddick’s most elaborate and stunning artwork ever. Hail death, hail Vlad Blasphemer!!!
