December's Fire – Vae Victis CD (Arachnophobia Records) Old-School Dungeon Synth, Avantgarde. ambient / black metal. Originally released in 1996 by Last Epitaph Productions from Germany, Vae Victis in many ways embodies the aspirations of the Polish metal underground of the mid-90s period. Especially of those who sought new ways of expression on its fringes. Piotr Weltrowski, member of Hefeystos and Behemoth collaborator, was at the forefront of this current. December's Fire was his solo undertaking. We have pathos, ceremonial aura and dark poetics on the one hand. While on the other, synth-based, marching compositions, strongly inspired by the works of Laibach and early-Cold Meat Industry. These were the elements which made December's Fire debut stand out from the rest. Yet, at the same time, it complemented a specific zeitgeist of those days. Verses of songs such as ‘Patrz jak płoną dzikie róże’ (translates to: ‘Look How the Wild Roses Burn’) or the title track, were given a passionate interpretation by Behemoth's Nergal, and they are now something which dozens of fans know off by heart.
