Enochian Crescent

Enochian Crescent - Telocvovim Enochian Crescent . Omega Telocvovim Black metal patrol featuring members and ex-members of Cartilage, (The True) Black Dawn, Vomiturition, Rotten Sound and ... And Oceans. Well-played and produced though their output is, the band is destined to be remembered as the penguin band whose vocalist Janne "Mr Wrath" Kuru was hospitalised midway through the show supporting Emperor at Tavastia Klubi for he accidentally cut his wrist a little too deep. The knife he used was one that his father had received as a gift for 20 years of duty.

An anecdote for all ye true men: Emperor refused to climb onstage before the place was scoured thoroughly.

Euthanausea
