PERSEKUTOR are from Târgu Mures, Transylvania. They don't merely play Romanian black metal. They ARE Romanian black metal. Guitarist/vocalist Vlad The Inhaler and lead bassist Ion "Iron Slasher" Slasescu are goat herders by day and black metal masters of the universe by night. They have been through several drummers over the years, including one who claimed to be a descendant of famed Romanian pan flute virtuoso Zamfir. Their current drummer is the enigmatic Doktor Impossible. "Power Frost" b/w "The Twitching Hour" is PERSEKUTOR's first and best new material in seven years. The title "The Twitching Hour" was stolen from Repulsion main man Scott Carlson, who had planned to use it for something but was too slow on the draw and you snooze/you lose, etc. It was used with his permission, which was given after the fact. The band's previous album, "Angels of Meth" was the first to ever score a perfect 10/10 in Decibel Magazine. The band is routinely championed by Darkthrone frontman Fenriz.
