"國殤 National Martyr" is an important album in the history of Chinese extreme metal/black metal. In the early days of the Chinese extreme metal scene around the year 2000, when most bands were trying to find their own sound, "National Martyr" was released by Shang label in 2006, it left a lasting impression and has continued to be an important influence on future generations of metal bands in China. Influenced by the 2nd Wave of Black Metal from Scandinavia, Resurrection has created its own style by imbibing the soul of traditional Chinese culture in all aspects of songwriting and lyrics, including Chu Ci Poetry of Qu Yuan (c. 340 BC – 278 BC).
As a label with its origins in Nanjing, it is a great honour for WV Sorcerer Productions to release this epic album on vinyl after 15 years. In order to preserve the original sound of the album, we have not re-recorded the album, but did a new mastering for both vinyl and CD, by our brother Cyril Meysson, to enhance the sound quality while restoring the original energy of the 2000s.
