​Video of the day: Live footage of Post-Soviet metal band Cerber

Noizr Zine shares a randomly discovered video titled "Советский Black Metal (1991)" ("Soviet Black Metal (1991)"), a 3-minute 1991’s live footage of the Post-Soviet metal act Cerber.

The video, with a trve 144-240p quality, features the band performing its own track "Битва с Сатаной" ["Battle with Satan" in Russian]. All four members of the band matches their music perfectly — all of them are dressed in black (but in dark blue/gray ripped jeans and with thrash style hairdos), with wide bracelets on their hands and with corpse painted faces. The overall atmosphere is completed by Cerber’s vocalist who waves a scythe during the set.
