Today, Werewolf Records, in conspiracy with Hells Headbangers, sets August 17th as the international release date for Morketida's striking debut album, Panphage Mysticism, on CD and vinyl LP formats.
Hailing from the black metal hotbed of Finland, Morketida drive deeply into their native land's most mystical depths. Whereas so many nowadays Finnish black metal bands derive influence from the cryogenic fury of the Satanic Warmaster axis or the paradigmatic bestiality of early Beherit, Morketidareturn to the woodland wonder of such oft-overlooked hordes of Noenum, Vritra, and Blood Red Fog's most desolate musings. By no means plagiarists, the young mavericks behind Morketida similarly invoke a ghostly grimness, wandering within the night to thick-yet-spacious swells of ripped-raw guitar and foggy organ. Largely downtempo, this is black metal stripped of superfluous aggression but suffused with beyond-the-shade atmosphere. Indeed, this is Panphage Mysticism!
Werewolf Records is a Luciferian metal temple founded in 1998. The wolfish cry from the Carelian battlegrounds, Werewolf Records releases black metal and other dark arts motivated exclusively by theistic Satanist views of the founder Werwolf. In this age when black metal's worth is questionable, idealism and rigor are the exception when they should be the highest law. We uphold the law of the Wolf - the destruction of the weak and the false so that the original vitality of the dark magic art can continue to grow and create the foundations for an empire. Black metal is Will and Power. We deal with material that inspires us on our journey towards our own kingdom - a kingdom that is not yours, but bears a resemblance to the one there could be for you. Now in conspiracy with Hells Headbangers, the temple of Werewolf Records shall wage its war farther and wider than ever, with no spiritual surrender.
