As some of you may have heard, we’ve managed to track down the elusively enigmatic Romanian black metal outfit PERSEKUTOR and have made the arrangements to release a special 7″ for them on Black Friday.

Special thanks to Daciana Birladeanu for being our fixer on the ground in Transylvania (and arranging contact with the band) and our attorney Bryan Christner for assistance in clearing PERSEKUTOR from contractual obligations under Thousand Year Reich, their former label. It’s been a long road with a lot of obstacles, but we’re thinking everyone will ultimately agree that the juice was worth the squeeze.

Metal historians will recall that PERSEKUTOR‘s 2006 debut (Angels of Meth) was oft-heralded as one of the best albums of the year, scoring a perfect 10 out of 10 in Decibel Magazine and garnering heaps of praise from Fenriz of DARKTHRONE. Naturally, Decibel continues to be at the forefront of every happening in the metal underground and has already published a rare interview with guitarist Vlad the Inhaler.

As a bonus, we’ve premiered the track “Power Frost” in tandem with said interview.

Enjoy both here:
