Vandød was a rather short lived old school black metal band from Trondheim in Norway. Playing a
style true to the old Norwegian black metal roots, cold and grim yet with a melodic twist. Taking
their inspiration from the early days of bands such as Ulver, Emperor, Burzum, Darkthrone, Kampfar
and Taake. The idea behind the band came to mind by Varskrik (Vocals) and Svartsinn (bass) in the early winter of 2002,
wanting to play old school black metal in a time when most other BM bands were reaching for the stars.
When they soon were joined by Gjenferd (guitars) and Myhrd (drums), the band quickly had a handful of songs
and decided they needed two guitarists to make the sound the way they wanted it to be. Enter Hinmand, the melodic
sound got implemented and Vandød became a very respected band in their short few years of grimness.
Varskrik and Svartsinn have since the band split up, been wanting to release these songs because the demand
has been surprisingly high even to this...
Nové jméno polské black metalové scény.
Varmia were established in 2016 in Olsztyn, Poland by guitarist & vocalist, Lasota. The band’s name is taken from the historical region in northern Poland, Warmia. It reflects the band’s lyrical content which is inspired by pre-Slavic qualities and heritage of the Warmia district. Varmia carry the ethnic Slavic spirit into the recording by utilising Slavic instruments and recording the material fully live.
Entitled, “W ciele nie” is the band’s second album that follows up on the outstanding debut, “Z mar twych”.
Varmia favour the natural and authentic sound. That is why the new album was recorded in a makeshift studio in an old barn, while the vocals and ethnic instruments were recorded live in the forests in Warmia, a region in northern Poland. The result of this is black metal loaded with wilderness and heathen spirit.

Melancholický, přírodou inspirovaný náladotvůrný black - doom metal s prvky folku. Digipack. USA.
The bands music can be best described as a combination of sorrowful black metal with a very doomy atmosphere, combined with elements of folk. Although the band definately has their own sound, one could easily find comparisons to bands like OPETH, AGALLOCH, PRIMORDIAL & WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM.
"Sovereign Nocturnal", the bands debut album is miles ahead of their 2007 demo "Pacing the Cyclic Nether" in terms of maturity, songcraft & production. With the three songs combining for a total running time of 41 minutes & 15 seconds the emphasis has been laid upon a musical foundation of progressive yet feral riffs intertwining with delicate passages that only make the heavier parts that much more potent, not unlike early Opeth & Agalloch! Combined with lyrical content based upon the premise that the human race is insignificant compared to the grand power and prestige of...

Rituální ambient industrial. Reedice alba z roku 1992. Digipack.
In the name of Ulex, in loving memory of John, here comes Vhril! Vhril began life as Ulex Xane’s (Streicher, Zero Cabal fame) own solo project in 1991. He and John Murphy (rip) had been friends since the early 1980’s and had long wanted to do some duo recordings together contributing to each other’s projects on several occasions and playing live together. John became interested in the Vhril concept when Ulex had told him about its occult associations exploring Thulean esoteric paths and Vril energies in a ritual setting. Together they would record material during extended sessions/meditations and assemble it into specific tracks later: John often brought tapes of material he’d recorded elsewhere to be used as a basis to add other sounds in Ulex’s studio. Later on when John went up to Sydney again he took the Vhril idea with him and morphed it into his Shining Vril project (but that’s another story, folks). In the vein...
