MERZOTNA POTVORA 'Halas Z Pekla' (2021) CASSETTE
Spirit Coffin Publishing Presents... [TOMB-04] An official cassette edition of Kyiv, Ukraine based black/thrash metal duo MERZOTNA POTVORA's debut full-length 'Halaz Z Pekla', a high energy metalpunk record that blazes through its ~32 minute riff fest and punctuates the event with a ripping Razor cover! Originally released on Norway's Duplicate Records in mid-April 2021, I'd been immediately impressed by their stylized performances, classic black/thrash riff attack and intensely defiant attitude. FFO: Infernö, Flames, Törr.
32:19 minutes. Ltd. first run of 150 Burgundy tapes. Double sided J-card, full color innards, layout by Spirit Coffin Publishing. Manufactured in Canada.
