Birthed in 2002 as solo act of Carpathian artist Sergiy Fjordsson (Psilocybe City Life, Saturn Form Essence, Silver Sphere Moon), MOLOCH delivers cold, misanthropic, and desolate mid-tempo black metal, influenced by second wave artists like Burzum and early Darkthrone. Amidst the relentless torrent of demos, EPs, splits, albums, and other recordings over the past thirteen years, Verwüstung -- German for "devastation" -- is arguably the most belligerent and riff-powered chapter of Moloch's prolific discography. The collection of eleven raw and stripped-down songs shows minimalistic aggression, enriched by few synth driven, meditative, ambient passages, with Fjordsson handling all instruments except drums, which were executed by session member Gionata Potenti (Acherontas, Ad Hominem, Darvaza, Deathrow, Fides Inversa, ex-Glorior Belli, ex-Krieg).
Released in a one-time limited CD run in 2014, MOLOCH's Verwüstung will now be reissued in a quality LP version, featuring the previously unreleased track "Große Geister Aus Dem Vergessenen Königreich Der Stille," the entire album fully remastered for vinyl by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, bringing these fully analog recordings to a new level of intensity. The record will be pressed on both gold/black haze and solid black 12" vinyl - 150 copies each - enclosed in a luxurious black, white, and gold heavyweight jacket with printed inner sleeve.
