Throne Below

Throne Below

Throne Below is one-man black metal act hailing from South Africa. The project started out in 2008 as ambient/raw black metal. The first EP, "Winter Eternal" was released in 2009 and received positive feedback from followers. In 2011 the EP, "All Heathens Rise" was released and the sound was quite different from the previous work. The new sound had a better production and drew more inspiration from Norwegian acts such as Urgehal and Tsjuder. In 2013 the debut album, "Defy Deceit Destroy" was released and by this time the sound of Throne Below had changed since 2011. This album drew a lot of inspiration from Greek,French and Swedish orthodox black metal bands. Orlok is the sole member and handles guitars,bass,vocals and drum programming. This band strongly opposes religion - especially Christianity, and furthermore it stands for self-enlightenment.

Devilish Impressions

Devilish Impressions

Considered as one of Poland’s leading and most innovative modern black / death metal acts Devilish Impressions officially started in 2000 as a three-piece, with founding singer / guitarist Quazarre remaining the only member of the original line-up. 2005 saw them recording “Plurima Mortis Imago”, released in September 2006 on the London-based Conquer Records. The video for the song “SataniChaoSymphony” was shot in London and two months later. With the new drummer Icanraz, Devilish Impressions hits the road along with AETERNUS as part of the European “Ageless Void Tour”. In April 2007 they land a direct support slot on MARDUK’s “Swords In The East” Eastern European run. The second' full-length “Diabolicanos...” album, released in January 2008, was widely praised in the international metal press and gave Devilish Impressions the opportunity to open for BEHEMOTH and SUICIDE SILENCE on “The Apostasy European Tour”, and then embark with DISMEMBER for the “UK, Ireland and Northern Ireland Tour”. Meanwhile the group was invited for selected shows of WACKEN ROAD SHOW 2008 yet, due to above-mentioned tours having been booked earlier, they eventually managed to join the WRS bill, OVERKILL, TRISTANIA, SAMAEL and ENSLAVED, for a show in Kiev only. In the second half of 2010, having a new bassist Vraath on board, Devilish Impressions enters few recording studios, incl. Studio X and Hertz Studio in order to produce their very best opus up-to-date named “Simulacra”. The long-lasting recording session backed up by session synth appearances of Flumen (Asgaard) and Lestath (METransmissionAL), as well as special guests incl. Orion (Behemoth), Jacek Grecki (Lost Soul) and Roman (Lecter), resulted in extremely sharp and massive sound of the album, that along with the new songs’ outstanding craftsmanship, breath-taking artworks and lyrical concept based on works of the world’s famous poets makes the “Simulacra” record one of the 2012 must-have metal offers. http://devilish-impressions.com http://facebook.com/devilishimpressions http://twitter.com/devilishimpress

Baalberith

Baalberith

Baalberith are a UK Black metal band Located in the Nottingham / Newark areas. Formed in 1999, we are fuelled by the aspiration and determination to create music that is pushing the boundaries beyond those which one would expect in certain metal genres. Baalberith are inspired by bands such as Behemoth, Anaal Nathrakh and various other artists of the Black Metal / Death Metal and Doom fields. We draw our inspiration primarily from the Black Metal style, but are known for introducing our own breed of belligerence, passion and vehemence into the mix. Since our formation we have been booked to share the stage with many renowned acts such as Ragnarok [NO], Abigail Williams [US], Abgott [UK], Hecate Enthroned [UK] and Gorgoroth [NO]. Over the years we have established a devoted and rabid fan-base worldwide. It is our firm belief that without the fans, a band is essentially nothing and for that reason, we are always endeavouring to connect with them be it through social media or conversations at the merchandise booth or bar. We make it a point to talk to everyone, to sign every item and to take every photo, because without the support of the fans, we do not exist. Most importantly we do this because we are fans of metal music, and strongly feel we could be a key part in the evolution of the “new wave” of British Black Metal. With the help of many D.I.Y labels worldwide we have harvested a great deal of exposure and reviews through various blogs, zines and websites. We have released various EP’s and albums over the years, most notably being ‘Abortion of religious futility’ and are continuing to write material for a new full length release. The impending “new wave” of British Black Metal is what drives us, keeps us inspired and gives us the desire to continue onwards in creating and sharing our music. It is our intent to create enthralling music that mirrors our evolution and exposure to an ever-evolving genre without surrendering the foundation from which we draw our sound.

Diablery

Diablery

"Diablery" is the kind of philosophy which accepts Lucifer. We call "Lucifer" Man's Inner Flame. We believe that the 'Will' is the first pillar of Attaining Wisdom, Knowledge and ultimately the Godhead. The lyrics are about the spiritual development and the inevitable decay of christianity and any organized religion. 2008 : The band was created by Nimerius and was located in Chalkida, Greece. The need for development forced Nimerius to move the base of the band in Athens as he found new members there. 2009: A year full of rehearsals, song composing and member changing (which also resulted in keeping back the band for a while). 2010: The band started live performances all over Greece and released their first half-length album "The Catharsis". 2011: The band booked several shows and 'Vanity of Darkness' was included in the compilation "The Black Syndicate Vol.3". Release of "The Eye" EP (consisting of 4 reproduced songs from "The Catharsis"), PreProduction for their debut (full-length) album. Diablery logo by Christophe Spazjdel. Diablery symbol designed by Setesh & Nimerius. Contact: diablerygr@gmail.com

Dark Cathedral

Dark Cathedral

I make my own music by myself, I don't get much influences from any artist of band. I express what I want to tell with my music, not only singing, I also tell more with an instrumental song than a song with lyrics

Mortuus Sum

Mortuus Sum

2002: Panzerfaust are summoned by Yngve (W.E.B., Mors In Tabula, ex-Acherontas) and Auren (ex-Nyne, ex-W.E.B.). A couple of songs are written, but never recorded. 2003: The band splits up, after Auren leaves for Sweden and Yngve joins the army. 2007: Yngve reforms the band under the name Mortuus Sum and begins composing and recording the first demo, which is not yet released. 2010: After a long time as a one man’s band, Yngve recruits Jim Havok (Chained And Desperate), bassist and long time friend to play bass and handle the vocals for the band. Almost at the same time, Morrigan joins as the band’s lyricist. Recordings of “Promo 2011” are finally started. 2011: “Promo 2011” is finally released in May, in digital format and the band begins writing songs for an upcoming split EP with the Greek thrash/death metal band Blasphemahus. The songs for the first full length album are also composed, but not yet recorded. In August, Vaelor (Odin’s Court, ex-Diablery, ex-Mors In Tabula), joined the band as a guitarist. 2012: Jim Havok decides to leave the band in February. He left in good terms due to limited free time, as he lives in a different city than the rest of the band. At the same time, Tartarus (Odin’s Court, ex-Nipenthis) joined the band to handle guitars and bass, along with Vaelor. Not a lot of time passed and in April, Tartarus leaves due to restricted time and heavy schedule at his job. Morrigan also leaves for personal reasons. Just as before, Jim Havok returns to handle the bass once again, after Yngve’s decision to keep Mortuus Sum as a studio band. In May, Ikteros (Funeral Storm, Aphorism, Mors In Tabula, Nano Infect) joines as the vocalist and Banshee joines as the band’s lyricist. On October 3rd, a split EP with Funeral Storm, entitled “Inverted God”, is released in digital format and is available for free download. 2013: In February, “Promo 2011” which was released in digital format in 2011, is released on CD-r, limited to 50 hand-numbered copies. Astraeos (Morbid Fog, Vetusmora, Theosis), joined the band in March, as the second vocalist. As in April 8th, Ikteros is no longer our vocalist, due to personal reasons. On the 22nd of May, the split EP with Nattergal entitled "Buried and Doomed in Misery", was finally released in digital format and it's available for purchase via BandCamp. Black Metal inspired by the Ancient Ones (Darkthrone, Bathory, Mayhem, Dark Funeral...) NO POLITICS!!! NO PROPAGANDA!!! JUST PURE BLACK METAL!!!

Vigour

Vigour

The story goes back in late 2000, when Nathir (bass, vocals) and Heretic (guitars), after quitting their local band, decided to start a black metal project named Hybrid Vigour. The first songs were soon composed, but it was difficult to find members to join them. Many participated in the project but none as a permanent member. That was until 2005, when Deathmass (drums) and G. (guitars) joined as permanent members. Unfortunately, at that time Heretic due to personal reasons had to quit so Nathir took over the guitars. In the next 2 years the songs took their final form and in the summer of 2007 Vigour decided to record 8 songs intending to release them as a full length album, with the co-operation of REKTOR as the sound engineer. It was during the recordings that was decided that the band's name should change to Vigour. On sunday 06/01/2008 Vigour performed their first live gig at An club (Line-up: Kaiserreich, Nadiwrath ,Vigour ,Tumult) with the help of V.O.T. (Obduktion) on the vocals and Obduktor (Obduktion) on the bass. In the summer of 2008 David (bass) joined the band as a permanent member and Nathir took over the vocals. In late 2010 Deathmass departed from the band and he was soon replaced by Jan. At that time Kostas joined the band as the new lead guitarist. For the time being the band is about to complete the prosedure of releasing their debut album. Current line-up: Nathir - Vocals, G. - Guitar, David - Bass / Backing Vocals, Jan - Drums, Kostas - Lead Guitar

Lord Impaler

Lord Impaler

Lord Impaler is a Hellenic melodic black metal act. Unlike most Greek black metal bands, our musical direction has a strong scandinavic flavor. We present a kind of black metal that is rarely met anymore, pure to the tradition and the origin, presented in a modern way and worked with stellar technics. Formed in late 1998 in Kastoria, Greece, we proceeded to record and release our first demo "The Lord Impaler" in 1999, followed by "Twilight Wander" in 2001. We also gave 2 live shows in 1999 and 2000. Then the band went into hiatus. Risen from the dead in 2005, we discarded most of our old stuff and went on to release "Promo 2005". In 2008 we participated in a 4-way split released on 10" vinyl format under the title "The Ascending Novelty". In 2009 we released another demo under the very original title "Demo 2009", showcasing music of our forthcoming debut album. In 2010 we finished the recordings of our first full-length album "Admire the Cosmos Black" which was under constant development since 2005. The album contains 10 tracks spanning over 1 hour in duration and was released in 2011 (self financed). It was mixed and mastered at Molla Lydstudio by Knut M. Valle. Drums were performed by the legendary Hellhammer (Mayhem). Current lineup consists of Tragon - Vocals Lord Nebulah - Guitars Phlegethon - Bass
