|At the pressing plant now, to be released August 17th (PRE-ORDERS TAKEN NOW!):
SSR006: Black Crucifixion - "Promethean Gift" Gatefold Lp
If you thought that "The Fallen One of Flames" was dark , then prepare yourself for a night supreme!
Finland's black metal pioneers Black Crucifixion recorded two mini- albums in 1991 and 1992. The first one "The Fallen One of Flames" has been re-released several times on the both sides of the Atlantic. But the second, "Promethean Gift" has remained a mystery for all except those few lucky who have managed to get their hands on the original pressing released by Lethal Records. Now the wait is over as both a gatefold vinyl and a special CD pressing come out on SoulSeller Records. Both editions feature unseen pictures , massive linear notes and new revised design by the band. Also four previously unheard bonus tracks complete the album making it eight songs of the original darkness from the Arctic Circle!
It would be an understatement and a shame to call Black Crucifixion' s "Promethean Gift" a black metal cult release as nowadays everything recorded in the nineties is supposed to be of value. But consider this: The original four song mini-album was recorded in 1992 and has been sold out ever since! This full length special edition comes with four previously unreleased bonus tracks from the band's early career, including a majestic demo recorded in of their first rehearsals in 1991!
This may be the first black metal release that started to take the genre forwards! This is where dark metal was spawned! This is PROMETHEAN GIFT!
1. Promethean Gift
2. Serpent of your Holy Garden
3. Journey into myself
4. Flowing Downwards
Side B: (Previously unreleased bonus material):
1. Suomi Finland Saatana (Studio track 1996)
2. Black Crucifixion (Demo 1991)
3. Death Water (Demo 1993)
4. Flowing Downwards (Live 1993)
