Zyklon-B was a project band that was started in Norway back in 1994 with several members of other known Norwegian Black Metal acts. The result of this short-lived collaboration was the 11-minute long MCD “Blood Must Be Shed”. It was hastily produced, under simple conditions, and in a very spontaneous manner. The music was labelled as Black Metal, Death Metal, Mass-Murder Metal, etc. Basically, it’s Metal in its most raw and pure aggressive form. Even if the production does not do the music its full justice, it is played with conviction and emotion. With sound samples of various sub-cultural figures and religious-fanatics from around the globe, and a number of dismal and sinister keyboard ambiences, it creates a certain atmosphere that enhances the pure metallic aggression. The MCD was originally released by the now-defunct Malicious Records and has been out of print for many years. It has since become an underground cult release that is near impossible to find and therefore much sought after by many die-hard extreme metal fans. The project generated some controversy due to its extreme name, but as the original release states, this project never held any form of political or racial attitude, nor sympathy for any kind of doctrine. It was merely a statement of the extreme! It was simply aggression against the downfall and general stupidity of humanity, and the loss off decency and values in the modern man.
This is a Black Metal Cult classic that you cannot miss out again!!
