It has been 23 years since „Verborgen in den Tiefen der Wälder“ saw the darkness of the world. Atmospheric and also romantic black metal in the vein of old Satyricon or Gehenna. Nevertheless Bergthron developed their own dark and heathen atmosphere and the music doesn’t sound like a norse plagiarization. It was never about copying a group or bagging quick glory. Bergthron basically went on distance from the scene or never belonged to it also interviews were only given very rarely. It was a myth of the German black metal movement. Individuals who wanted to disconnect from normal society. As important as this release may have been, it never saw its existence on vinyl. “Verborgen in den Tiefen der Wälder” was originally released through Perverted Taste.
