DODSFERD is the personal project of Wrath (a.k.a Nikos Spanakis), originally from Ierapetra, Crete. They were founded 21 years ago in Athens and they took their name from DIMMU BORGIR’s song coming from “Stormblast”. “Suicide And the Rest Of Your Kind Will Follow II” is their eleventh album (part I was released in 2009).

With the help of Sarvok (bass, keyboards, cello) and N.D. (drums), the multi-talented Wrath (vocals, guitars, lyrics) has released perhaps the most personal record of his career. The album began to be written in the first months of 2020 and the dark quarantine period in which Nikos had permanently returned to his place of origin. It contains two tracks, the 18-minute “Suicide And the Rest Of Your Kind Will Follow: The Red Lake Of Your Innocence” and the 17-minute “Servants Of Ego And Filth: The Bastards Sons Of Nature”. The style remains misanthropic Black Metal with many changes and varieties, vocals (from clean and melodic to extreme growls), distorted black metal guitars but also acoustic guitars, changes of rhythms and speeds, reminding the works of SHINING but also BURZUM, mainly because of the vocals. In any case, the band has a personal style and identity, without copying anyone, in those two really “sick” compositions! A big plus for this release is the addition of cello in some parts, but also some very nice and unique orchestrations.

Lyrically speaking, in this release Wrath brings out his innermost soul and personal demons, referring to the very bad feeling of loss but also to the struggle for a world full of higher ideals. He brings out his rage and hatred for the human species, something he had already done in the first part in 2009. The album is released in a very beautiful and luxurious digipack by his company F.Y.C (Fucking Your Creation) records.
