Obscure Nordic-influenced Slavonic Black Metal cult from the Carpathian mountains. Raw, somewhat primitive and necro-ish atmosphere inspired by BURZUM and DARKTHRONE. Maybe comparable to STRIBORG, but a lot "better" in many ways, this is the first MOLOCH release for BlackMetal.com Records, "Depression of Surtr" is also the band's first full-length album to be officially released on [Pro-Manufactured] 'REAL' CD (Not 'cdr'), an elite tour-de-force featuring many 'previously-unreleased' tracks, rarities, cover-versions of BURZUM and DARKTHRONE songs, and also includes a teaser for the next album "Der Schein des schwarzesten Schnees", to be released exclusively on BlackMetal.com Records in the very near future! (2009)
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".
