Mortality Weakness


This is the artwork of the issue of IN DARK PURITY 'Zine that will be totally dedicated to one of the bands that changed my life, MALIGNANCY.  The artwork is a mutation of MALIGNANCY's theme and IN DARK PURITY 'Zine's ideology.  "Mortality Weakness" is a song about progeria, a rapid aging disease. The song originally appeared on the "Frailty Of The Human Condition" split CD with INTERVALLE BIZAZARE released by Shindy Productions (Czech Republic) in 2002 and was re-recorded and featured on the "Cross Species Transmutation" EP released by United Guttural Records (USA) in 2003.  To continue the tradition of the 'zine to defile religion. I have chosen another image of your Mother Mary and deformed her to be the MALIGNANCY creature that originally appeared on the "Promo CD" (1998) with her son Jesus Christ, Saint Archangel Michael and  Saint Archangel Gabriel all with progeria.  Progeria and religion are both a disease to me.  I will explain the details of the artwork in the 'zine.  For now stay malignant and rot "perpetually"!

Paganfire - Wreaking Fear And Death

"Wreaking Fear And Death" (Promo)
Independent/Self Released

Finally a PAGANFIRE full length in my hands!  I'm pissed as fuck 'cause they are starting to be like AGATHOCLES and NUNSLAUGHTER with all the split releases and I've missed out on a lot and I can't keep up. 

I have the promo tape. It's signed by Vro (Vocals/Bass) and it was handed over to me by Jay (Drums) when he was in Singapore. It features eight songs. Recorded at Sumata Studio. Artwork (Sketch Version) by Norman Trinidad. It comes with a fold out j-card with a band photo, lyrics, credits, contact information, and insults. 

"Wreaking Fear And Death" totally represents what the band is about and what they stand for. It's their finest work in all aspects: artwork, songwriting, and the production. It shits on the previous releases. Though some are totally shit to me. So it double shit on the others, but they can all fuck off after listening to this. They are all irrelevant to me now as this is all I need from PAGANFIRE. It's solid, raging, and destructive!  Unfortunately, my favorite PAGANFIRE song, "Metal Thrashing Militants" didn't make it to this release. 

It's officially released by Afterlife Productions (Malaysia) and Mandarangan Recordings (USA). I have yet to get my hands on either version, though.  If you are interested to check out Thrash Metal from the Philippines. "Wreaking Fear And Death" is mandatory!

It literally wreaked fear and death on my cassette player as this was the last tape I listened to before it died. Ha!
