December's Fire Re-Releasing "Vae Victis" Album

"Vae Victis" by December's Fire is a landmark of its own epoch, and now thanks to a reissue by Arachnophobia Records, this gem will be available once again. The remastered CD is due out on the 25 of April. 2017.

The newly remastered title track is streaming below and pre-orders are online here. Whether for authentic fascination or tongue-in-cheek nostalgia, the memory of the only December’s Fire full-length lives on.

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.

Verses of songs such as “Patrz jak plona dzikie róze” (translates to: “Look How the Wild Roses Burn”) and the title track were given a passionate interpretation by Behemoth's Nergal, and they are now something which dozens of fans know by heart. Marcin Rybicki of Left Hand Sounds studio was responsible for remastering and refreshing the sound of "Vae Victis."
