Assembled in 1996 by Mikael (drums) and Joel (guitar), they soon saw the band increase in number and consistence with the addition of Robin (bass and growls), Tommy (guitar) and Glenn (vocals). In the course of time they released the debut demo When the Night Betrays the Light (97), the following demo The Laughter of […]
1997 watched the birth of many things evil in San Antonio, USA. One of them was performed by Obliterater and Necroghoul, being later completed by Lord Vistigium and Inferno. The attack upon humankind would be self-labelled ‘brutal fucking war metal’, a pompous way of saying raw Black Metal. The gathering of murderous souls released ’98 […]
The Unconquered Land has a beautiful folk beginning, bards alike. CRYSTALMOORS play Pagan Metal as invoked by Uruksoth (vocals), Erun-Dagoth (guitar), Faramir (guitar and flute), Throrus (bass), Gharador (drums and percussion) and Gothmog (keyboards).
Born in the Pits of Portugal (although Hell could have been a good guess) in 2001 by the hands of Baal Sabbath (guitars, bass) and Devasth (vocals, programming), the intention was understandably to unleash the fiercest, most violent and destructive Black Metal manifestation ever.
PERDITOR was founded in 1997 by Azazel (bass, vocals) and Lord Sauron (guitar). Very much based upon the Satanist thought commando, the first demo Hell on Earth came out in 2000, featuring Vulgaris on drums. Several line-up changes afterwards, 2001 saw the release of Perdition, the demo that signed the band to Ordealis Records, through […]

GHOLGOTH were founded in late 1998 by Zoltan Molnar (vocals), Zsolt Temesváry (bass) and guitarist Attila Torday (guitars). Endre Vigh (drums) and second guitarist Tibor Kovacs (both belonging to DIAFRAGAMA) joined the ritual and released the ’00 demo Visional Inertia. The current line-up has Laszlo Kliment replacing Attila the Hun (sorry, couldn’t help myself).
