PURITY THROUGH FIRE is proud to present a brand-new EP from VAMPYRIC TYRANT, Zorn und Hass, on CD and 12" vinyl formats. The CD version will be released on December 21 while the vinyl version will follow next year.
Formed in 2020, VAMPYRIC TYRANT are a Teutonic black metal duo forged in the fires of old. The band is helmed by ex-Grabunhold member Graf Nekromant, joined by drummer Akatash. As foretold by their moniker, VAMPYRIC TYRANT indeed offer an iteration of vampiric black metal, but one locked in the dungeon of the '90s, as well as equally pursuing the epic ruminations of the legendary Moonblood.
Now joined under the banner of PURITY THROUGH FIRE and with the addition of bassist König Grausamkeit, VAMPYRIC TYRANT enter their next epoch with a four-song/19-minute EP fittingly titled Zorn und Hass. Grim yet stately, raw yet refined, the ghoulishness they offer here is as ethereal as it is insistent. More than that, each of the four tracks offers its own labyrinth of nostalgia and despair, perhaps hitting its sorrowful peak with the crying-orc instrumental "Ein Traum." Then, Zorn und Hass concludes in mesmerizingly hooligan fashion with the six-minute, organ-led "Totschlag."
Together with this new release, PURITY THROUGH FIRE will reissue the band's debut EP, Das Schwert der Sterne, on CD and later vinyl as well as reissue their debut album, Schwarze Schwingen, on vinyl. VAMPYRIC TYRANT on the march!
