Moloch's Verwüstung reviewed briefly at @PlanetMosh.

moloch - album cover art aWith Moloch, a true and grim underground black metal band has emerged, with most of their releases available as strictly limited editions! Hailing from dark, frozen Ukraine, Nocebo Records released an eight-song picture disc of Moloch’s material, titled Verwüstung. All lyrics are in Ukranian, but the song titles are in German, to “whiten” them a bit. It’s understood that the Ukraine is currently a “conflict zone”, and their technology might not be the greatest, but Nocebo should have insisted that the band at least record something professionally. This sounds like a 4-track recorded band practice. What’s nice about such a raw recording is that you can hear the skill of the musicians: occasionally meandering meter, vocalist overpowering his mic, and on. Sergiy and his “kultivated” fans must appreciate the message more than the vehicle. Tailor-made for humanity-spurning, cellar-dwelling black metal elitists, this disc is a collector’s item in the making.

Sergiy Fjordsson – Guitar, Keyboard, Vocals
Alzatoth – Guitar
Gionata Potenti – Drums
