In this age of redundant re-releases of bands noone cared about and never will, we are proud to offer the only official vinyl reissue of this timeless Satanic black metal masterpiece and a true piece Dutch black metal history. In order to retain the spirit of the early 90's, this release reflects the orginal as much as possible, and therefore has no modern sellout gimmicks like useless bonustracks, photoshopped new artwork, rockstar liner notes or other unnecessary stuff.
Recorded back in 1992, fully improvised and in a state of Satanic possession. Now finally reprinted on vinyl and CD to kick all posers in the teeth.
Back when this was released in 2012, it was one of my fastest selling release to date. Now I have some copies back in stock. Together with Funeral Winds, Hekel, Countess and Heretic, this shaped Dutch black metal terrorism. 20 years after its original release, finally availabe on vinyl again. Limited edition of 666 handnumbered copies.

This young man is a real up and coming force in black metal. His stuff reminds me of The Ruins of Beverast; this is just about as high of a complement as I can give a project, as I consider Ruins to have almost perfected what black metal should sound like. Grandiose and gross (love that vomiting sample); Cthulhu's black metal band. Matthew Arnold

The avant-garde black metal equivalent of a bad acid trip. Claustrophobic, terrifying, unnerving, and one of the best boundary-pushing metal records I’ve listened to in years. Cole “Master ov Crabs” Galando

What’s left to say that hasn’t already been said. I shall just add my voice to the consensus; HAIL THE TRUE BATUSHKA! I won’t even regard the other imposter because it’s simply an inferior band. Regardless of other bands, this album is the best to release this year; a testimony to what metal and powerful music can bring to the table. Buy this. Now metalm8200000
