XII writes the music and I could say that there is a sort of connection as we’ve been friends for 13 years. This record was done during eight years because of many mental situations, but the first two songs were done in 2009 and we kind of followed unconsciously that musical pattern. Lyrics were written in like 10 years as I hunted the Dadaism technique.”

“What really catches my attention right off the bat is V explosive vocals. The utter sound of hatred and disgust he puts into every lyric gives these songs their almost epic feel. His vocals demand your attention! Yet, it doesn’t seem like he’s being fake or over the top, which is something all too common with a lot of black metal.”

Today, Blood & Fire Productions mastermind V is invited to the local radio station Radio Rock 89 (Asociația Rock 89 Constanța). The broadcasting starts at 19:00 CEST, when you can listen to V talking about things related to Blood & Fire, the shop, the blog and so on, but also, he will shed some light upon his black metal project called The Wake featuring Night In Gales’ member XII.

“Hier ist für jeden etwas dabei. Das hier ist Black Metal, der sowohl den Fans der Neunziger als auch den zeitgemäßeren Black Metal-Fans von heute gerecht wird; ein guter Kompromiss!”

“In definitiva, ‘Earth’s Necropolis’, pur non inventando nulla di nuovo, si propone come un disco interessante per gli amanti di sonorità abrasive ma melodiche in ambito estremo.”

“Το πρώτο τους άλμπουμ έχει καλό ήχο, τα φωνητικά είναι πειστικά των διαθέσεων, εντοπίζονται και κάποια εκτελεστικά ολισθήματα που μάλλον θα βάλετε σε δεύτερη μοίρα.”

“I The Wake sputano un veleno particolare, gli effetti con molta probabilità varieranno da persona in persona, ma sul fatto che sia un potente veleno non potremo che concordare.”
