The first CUT is the DEEPEST

Hey, may be you already heard this old Cat Stevens cover song ? Apart from Cat Stevens himself, a lot of other artists sung it, making it become one of the most widely known ambiguous sugared love song.

I'm sure that you never heard about this version, performed by the evil Black Metal band Carpathian Forest. I must confess that only the title is borrowed from the song, the rest truly deals about the opposite of love (Death , anti-Christianity, Satan). This song perfectly express the overall feeling of the album :

Let's compare the chorus of the old saccharined love song :

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest
'cause when it comes to being lucky she's cursed
when it comes to lovin' me she's worst
but when it comes to being loved she's first
that's how I know

with the black metal anthem :

Step forth to the Devil's Warfields
And see His world through possessed Satanic eyes...
I am the enemy of God !!!
And the purest fire burns within...
A hunger for Death !!!
The world Abyss !!!
You live like filth under your false judeo-god...
The first CUT...
A man-made black messiah !!!

Which version do you prefer ? (you already know which is mine)
