DRUDKH have chosen to release their latest creative outburst in a string of split-EPs. For their first cooperation the Ukrainian underground black metal veterans have joined forces with legendary Norwegians HADES ALMIGHTY. Mastermind Roman Sayenko has drawn lyrical inspiration for the two tracks from the poetry of Ukrainian writer Volodymyr Svidzins'kyi (1885-1941), who was murdered by the Soviets after years of censorship and repression. Musically the two tracks "Golden Horse" and "Fiery Serpent" rank among the finest of DRUDKH's works combining raw harshness, epic melodies and excellent songwriting skills into black metal masterpieces.
In August 1989, four musicians, hiding under pseudonyms wicked: Captain Death (Spyros) (drums; ex-Vomit and Sound Polution), Mutilator (Jim) (bass; ex-Rotting Christ), John (guitar; ex-Danger Cross) and Necroabyssious (Stephan) (vocals; ex-Sickness Mind) - have joined forces under the banner of the dark Varathron. The result was a set of rehearsals legendary demo "Procreation of the Unaltered Evil", recorded in October 1989. The recording was terrible quality, but very blasphemous. In those days it was something special. Tape instantly attracted attention.
