“Fallen Angel of Doom….” is a monument of black metal! This album inspired an entire genre upon its release. The owner of Wild Rags! Records, the notorious Richard C., phoned Black Winds when the album was released and told him excitedly that the album was selling so well that he was having trouble keeping it in stock! For the underground scene it made an impact that still resonates to this day. Bands from all around the world were inspired by BLASPHEMY as soon as “Fallen Angel of Doom….” was unleashed. Everywhere from Brazil to Singapore, Finland to Germany, bands were taking cue from BLASPHEMY and playing the most merciless forms of black metal, and waves of other bands over the years came into being thanks to BLASPHEMY, including my former bands CONQUEROR and DOMINI INFERI! Black metal hit the highest levels of extremity when BLASPHEMY released “Fallen Angel of Doom….” still unsurpassed to this day! It took everything known about the genre and made it even more savage and malevolent, both musically and visually. The way it should be!
As the Nocturnal Grave Desecrater and Black Winds predicted on this album; “The Cursed Soul Bred by the Fallen Angel of Doom will return!” And as predicted, Nuclear War Now! Productions and my own label, Ross Bay Cult, are able to present to you this masterpiece of desecration on LP, CD, and MC formats. Darkness Prevails! ALWAYS….
