The first full-length album by Mrakobesie presents more straight-forward satanic black metal than the "Black-Red Dawn...". Maybe it's caused by a major change of a band's lineup. Now Mrakobesie is a five-member band, including two guitarists and a live drummer. The quality of sound has been increased significantly, and the majority of tracks have lyrics dealing with subjects more common to black metal - satanism, mysticism, death, sins of the flesh, etc. Below is a track list translated to English:
  1. The Eye Of Typhoon
  2. Dead Forest
  3. The Necromancer
  4. The Beast
  5. Christian Whore
  6. Dreams Of Black Sainthood
The latest two songs are the cover versions of a Russian civil war song and a WWII song respectively. The black metal versions of these songs sound just amazing, and these two tracks are the highlights of a whole album.

"The Beast" is a latest release by Mrakobesie, as far as I know. I've no idea if the band is still active nowadays, but at least they were still active last summer. As of 2007, they reportedly were working on the next album, which would be called "Власть Сатаны" ("Reign Of Satan"), and the lyrics would be 100% political. Don't know if it was released ever.

  2. honestly the closest thing to a good Black Metal video i've ever seen, and i've been a fan of the genre since i was 13. (im 28 now)

    and the best part is that it celebrates the side that actually WON.

    I kind of think that, with such topics at hand, it is oxymoronic to label one a serious revolutionary communist comrade when one incites such immoral and hedonistic acts to be perpetuated upon people.

    Socialism/communism is supposed to be a movement, a society to be created and grounded upon mutual love, on the struggle of the proletariat and oppressed for a more humane society for, instead of indulging on petty self-destructive bourgeois pleasures (not that pleasures are but, but I kind of think this is just liberal).

    All I'm saying is that communism is entirely anti-antithetical to evil

    1. Thanks. The lyrics definitely were posted on facebook not so long ago, but right now I can't remember where exactly (however, I'll search for them). I don't think this album is available for purchase anywhere, but you can search for their split w/ Nazgulum, if you want (it was released on CD, and maybe there still are some copies left).
