Vigor Reconstruct: A Benefit For The Soroka Family

Here at Metal Bandcamp we have been fans of Markov Soroka's many projects for years. Like Drown, Aureole, Krukh, and of course the mighty Tchornobog. This, though, is not a celebration of another new release from Markov, it's a benefit compilation with a sad background:

Here at Metal Bandcamp we have been fans of Markov Soroka's many projects for years. Like Drown, Aureole, Krukh, and of course the mighty Tchornobog. This, though, is not a celebration of another new release from Markov, it's a benefit compilation with a sad background:

Markov Soroka's father suffered a severe heart attack earlier this summer and, though he survived, was left without a job nor insurance in the wake of such tumult. Now the Soroka family faces at least $66,000 in medical bills. It is our hope that this compilation, featuring some of the very best of the metal (and beyond) underground, will help ameliorate some of the financial woes which they face.
Musically there's much to enjoy here (Mare Cognitum tearing through "Cosmic Keys to My Creations & Times"? Yes, please). The fantastic King's X cover by Panopticon led me to rediscover a band I had forgotten all about (I'm currently deep down a King's X Youtube rabbit hole). For another look back at good times, here's a couple of candid Tchernobog merch actions shots from when they played (remember live music?) Kill-Town Death Fest last year:

Oh, one last thing. An important message from the compilation organizers:
We will also concurrently be running a raffle for the original hand-painted artwork by Calvin Cushman, as well as original artwork by Karmazid (Tchornobog logo et al). At $5 per ticket, you are welcome to purchase as many "tickets" as possible (Paypal the total amount as Friends and Family to sorokafamilybenefit@gmail.com) between 10/2 and 10/4 (at midnight PST), with the winners being announced 10/5. Global shipping will be covered by the artists.
