Bergthron – Verborgen in den Tiefen der Wälder LP

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. You can order various Bergthron releases here: https://www.bergthron.de/

The latest collaboration is between Pesttanz Klangschmiede, Urtod Void and Schattenpfade. Three German labels who spend some dedication to this old German classic.

Verborgen in den Tiefen der Wälder will be available on black vinyl. A small amount of ca. 100 copies will be pressed on marbled red vinyl.
To be released around August MMXX.

Vinyl mastering by Liquid Aether Audio.

Apep – The Invocation Of The Deathless One LP

The unseen terror is omnipresent. Death slowly creeps up and spoils. And takes what it deserves. From the ancient crypts of Duat the judgment day awaits us. Eight hymns about chaos and destruction. A journey through darkness and deathless myths.  Apep delivers a massive death metal storm in the vein of Blood Incantation or Nile.

The Invocation Of The Deathless One will be available on black vinyl. A small amount of ca. 100 copies will be pressed on marbled amber vinyl. To be released around August MMXX.

Vinyl mastering by Temple Of Disharmony.

Resonare – Aderlass/Immoralist LP

Accordingly, each side contain one demo (Side A: Aderlass & Side B: Immoralist). This collection is limited to 195 copies. Aderlass Kunstverlag will also handle a special bundle for you (pre order for the bundle starts tomorrow). We will handle only the regular vinyl pressing.

Vinyl mastering by Sculpt Sound Studios.

Mystifier – The Sign Of The Unholy Baphomet 6MC Box

After long preparations, we now want to open the pre order for „The Sign Of The Unholy Baphomet“ 6MC collection by the mighty Mystifier. This collection will contain all obscurities until 1996 as well the demos.
Mystifer had a lot of band member changes in the past, but they always delivered cold and raw darkness. Satanic ceremonies about blood and sacrifices. Conjurations of the Brazilian satanists. Pure glorification of the evil one.
Most of those releases were never available on official music cassette or any kind of MC-repress and some other reissues (on vinyl/CD) had a massive loss of quality and passion regarding audio and visuals. We worked a lot on the cassette layouts to keep the original vinyl/CD layout as good as it gets alive. Unfortunately the „Massacre“ cover will be missed on „Tormenting the Holy Trinity“ to avoid any problems, but we will add both JCards that everyone can follow his own preference.
The box itself will come with a beautiful artwork made by Bryan of BMS illustration. Also here we considered the original drawings to recreate a personal and authentic touch. At this point we like to pay attention to our comrade Bryan.
To get a perfect round off Beelzeebubth and some other maniacs (thanks to Paweł Kaczyński and Peter/Vomitor Blood) provided tons of old photos, zine reviews and interviews to create your own handnumbered prayer book to celebrate this satanic release. The whole box will be limited to 500 copies.

Illustration(s) by: Bryan Maita (BMS Illustration).
Layout by Urtod.

The box contains:
Massive handnumbered booklet
Tormenting the Holy Trinity MC
T.E.A.R (The Evil Ascension Returns) MC
Aleister Crowley MC
Wicca MC
Göetia MC
T.W.I.S.G.T.W.M.I.D.L.H. MC
Extra JCard for Tormenting the Holy Trinity
3 Poster
Patch (~7x9cm)

Listen here. Please check the tracklist also at our Bandcamp page. It’s to long to list it here…

Pagan Altar Mythical & Magical | The Time Lord [Pre Order]

We like to inform you that we will be an official distributor for the upcoming Pagan Altar LPs which will be released through Temple of Mystery Records on December the 4th.

Mythical & Magical DLP | CD | MC(ToM)

Featuring songs written mostly between 1976 and 1983, Mythical & Magical is Pagan Altar’s third album and is, without a doubt, the pinnacle of their career. This grandiose, ancient-sounding masterpiece owes most of its atmosphere to Terry Jones’ majestic vocals and Alan Jones’ intricate guitar licks—which gracefully weave a web of medieval-tinged solos throughout the songs. The unique mixture of heavy doom rock and mournful English folk found on Mythical & Magical is absolutely impeccable and will forever be celebrated among the knowing as one of the best albums of the genre.

Gatefold LP version includes insert, new layout, etch on vinyl and remastered songs.

CD version includes exclusive liner-notes and remastered songs.

The Time Lord LP | CD | MC(ToM)

Originally recorded back in 1978-79, “The Time Lord” features Pagan Altar’s earliest recordings. Two of these flawlessly executed tracks are from a 24-track recording session, and the rest of the album are early, atmospheric versions of songs that were later re-recorded on Judgement of the Dead. This LP includes a long-lost, never-heard before version of “Night Rider”, from the same era as the other songs! This is pure doom metal sorcery.

LP version includes insert, new layout and remastered songs.

CD version includes exclusive liner-notes and remastered songs.

SEID – Spider In The Web Of Urd | Neocrome

Here we go with a video creation done by undergrounded and SEID. This track is taken from the upcoming full length „ULV“ which will be released soon on vinyl through our banner. We like to thank Sebastian D. for his great post-production on this music video (Cut etc…). Ulv will continue the norse saga, where Darkness Shall Fall has ended. And it´s also the next step after the personal closure of Neocrome…

Neocrome was the band that Seiðr from SEID aka Jonsson was writing songs for in the early 90’s. The music of Neocrome was never performed live or recorded at that time, because Seiðr couldn’t find other musicians who wanted to play death/black- metal living close enough in remote rural Uppsala. He instead joined the crust/HC band Abuse. But… the old Neocrome note book with riffs and lyrics remained and reappeared in early 2018, and now SEID has recorded it as an old school sounding demo cassette.
