– 20 years of metal in various shades of black.
Black Crucifixion pioneered Finnish black metal along with Impaled Nazarene and their fellow Lapland-dwellers Beherit.
After releasing the cult mini-albums The Fallen One of Flames (1992) and Promethean Gift (1993) Black Crucifixion reacted strongly against the growing popularity of black metal and went stealth.
In 2006 the band surprised many with the release of Faustian Dream –album on which they had been secretly working on for ten years.
Now the band celebrates their 20th anniversary with a new album Hope of Retaliation and selected gigs. The nine songs and 39 minutes feature four new studio tracks combined with five fresh live versions of Black Crucifixion classics from throughout their career.
The album displays the aggressive northern edge of the band’s current incarnation and the song writing matches and at places even exceeds the finest moments of their previous decades.
Release date: Early May
