Limited Edition Imitation Black Leather Digipak:
This extremely limited edition (25 copies), with 4 bonus tracks containing the entire "Hall of Pain" demo exclusive to this edition, comes in a uniquely designed, extra-large digipak that has been developed by, created by, and also locally produced, exclusively available from Nokternal Hemizphear. Each digipak has been individually hand-cut in the creation of the inner wooden inserts (the body of the digipak) and then with the skills of a local seamstress, imitation black leather has been perfectly cut and sewn to form a spectacular collector's item. The digipak easily opens and securely closes with a black onyx magnetic snap to conceal the locking mechanism of the digipak inside the design instead of outside. The disc for this limited version has different artwork and sits in a black digi-tray. The 12 page cloth booklet is housed in an imitation black leather booklet and individually sewn. Lyrics to all 16 tracks are included along with hand-numbering for all underground enthusiasts! The outside of the digipak and the booklet have band logos and symbols (patches) sewn to them as well. Clothe booklet and digipak logos/symbols custom printed by Starve the Flesh Clothing. Minor deviations from the pictures and the specs for each digipak are possible and inevitable due to the nature of handcrafted items such as these. These digipaks are made to look and feel like they are a true embodiment of the underground heart. And the best thing is that they will only look rougher and more underground as time goes on! This edition is strictly limited to 25 copies worldwide and will NEVER be made again!
"Hey, shut your mouth, rip out your voice. When I heard your stupid rules, my face is transformed. It's deformed... global government, covert murderer, authority terrorist...
puppets from hell"
Hit the streets and preach the truth - is the anthem of Black Leather. Crusty, groovin', blackened, thrashy punk metal is the mode of operandi for this war cry of the soul. A militia with the heart to reach the lost, preach the truth at any cost, and give evil a good smack around! Indeed, from the master mind that has brought us Diamoth, Anima Mortuum, and the lesser known ambient project Syhirious Meh Ihrnthlaier, Psychotherapist Zvi Tacussis diagnoses the root cause of the spiritual symptoms prevalent in society... sin! Be it corruption, lies, blasphemy, the origin of species, governmental terrorism, or the occult, this doctor of psych is not bashful in pointing the finger to the only solution for the pandemic, being that of Jesus Christ.
Overcome by his desire to understand the human mind, our resident psycho-metal-therapist, works at a drug and alcohol rehab center with group therapies during the day and at night brings light into the darkness continuing the process of further breaking down the mental and spiritual diseases possessing millions! As stated best by Dr. Psych himself, "In Chile and in the world, it is not common to find Christian psychologists, but I am one. It is less common to find Christian psychologists delivering the word of God and giving a word of salvation, but I am one. First I'm a Christian, saved by the blood of Christ, then I'm a psychologist. In my work I utilize methods that are justified on a theoretical framework in psychology, but I also work with the presence of God and I speak about His wonderful wisdom in His word. Therefore, Black Leather is a catharsis of my experiences, I cannot say that with Black Leather that I had the intention to evangelize, but on the other hand, rather to talk about my experiences. Black Leather is a moment where I sit and pull out all that is in me, putting everything good and bad at the foot of the cross of Christ, some songs are psalms, others are spiritual war, others are cathartic vomit."
The doctor of psych, like a mad scientist, formulated quite a brutal brew for your listening desires when he pulled from the musical influences of newer Darkthrone, Celtic Frost, and Warfare binding them as one with monster beats of Junker Jorg-like attitude, a hint of old school Mortification and rebel themes of the underground. Tough as nails! Behold warriors - its total punking black metal! Crusty as all get out and ready to rock deep into your bones!
Guest vocals by Fire (Elgibbor, Fire Throne, Katumus) on the track "Infernal Kingdom" seals the deal with the mind of black metal raw and real.
"Crude words, true undersound. Sounds in the streets. Evil is crushed. Strong grace, we are the underdogs. Killing demons in spiritual camps."
Lyrics from "Puppets from Hell" and "Black Leather"
