24 Years Ago: DARKTHRONE release Under a Funeral Moon

Recorded in June the previous year, Peaceville released the iconic Under a Funeral Moon on this day in 1993. We didn't care really much for the albums at the time, we all agreed that the rehearsals we did was the most important thing. We actually rehearsed a lot... I could sing on the rehearsals... which lifted the whole experience of rehearsing to new heights... All I can remember is really the best black metal magic ever...- Nocturnal Culto / Darkthrone interview Summer of the Diabolical Holocaust (Rehearsal 1992) As with A Blaze in the Northern Sky in August 1991, DARKTHRONE recorded at Creative Studios.There is scarce information about Creative, the only minor trivia I can offer is they had two...

21 Years Ago: FLEURETY record Vortex (Last-Minute Lies)

Following the release of Min tid skal komme in 1995 (Misanthropy Records co-released with Aesthetic Death), FLEURETY began working on new material. One of the earliest new songs was the killer "Vortex". The band sent a demo of "Vortex" to Misanthropy who refused the release, or as the band put it: ...our music wasn't conformist enough for their label.- Svein Egil Hatlevik / Fleurety interview, Qvadrivivm #3, 2000 They continued to record, at a slightly slower pace, without a definite label. "Vortex" was recorded in Panser Studio this month in 1996. Two more songs, "Facets" and "I Saw Claws", were recorded between August and September the following year.Eventually these were compiled onto a four-song (including the outro) MCD, released by...

27 Years Ago: Metal Passion Party 3 (Beherit, Xysma, Frost)

Live on this day in 1990, Rovaniemi, Finland. The third Metal Passion Party featuring BEHERIT, XYSMA and FROST. Beherit - Full Set We have played quite few gigs, less than 10. Our last gig was with XYSMA (you know, quite cool gore-core from southern Finland) but mainly we've played with other local bands here in North-Finland. On our gigs at least I'm "weltering in Blood", Necro-Vengeance and Sodomatic Slaughter have black face & corpse painting on. In future there should be more blood and fire on the stage and of course lots of upside-down crosses and pentagrams. We've planned to perform some Satanic rituals on stage, too. Oh, I almost forgot: we should be playing in Norway, too, in December,...

27 Years Ago: TIAMAT (formerly TREBLINKA) release Sumerian Cry on C.M.F.T.

We have changed our name to TIAMAT because it does really fit our lyrics better. The Satanic image is to keep the Unholy Black Metal alive. Some people (in fact, alot of people) want to kill it but early Venom, Possessed, Destruction, Slayer, Sodom will forever live on in our minds!!! Our image is a tribute to the good old black metal!!! Released on this day in 1990, the classic and still highly influential debut TIAMAT album, Sumerian Cry! Sumerian Cry, the classic Swedish black metal TIAMAT record from 1990 will be reissued on white vinyl in early May. This record is absolutely essential for fans of the modern occult death metal revival, the late-eighties/early nineties Swedish death metal scene...

25 Years Ago: Fantoft Stavkyrkje Burns (Norwegian Church Arson 1992) Photos & Video

The first ancient monument to fall at the hands of Norway’s black metal underground was the 12th Century Stave Church in Fana, Bergen. Firefighters take a break after battling the flames. Foto: Arne Ristesund The church was destroyed by arson on Saturday 6 June 1992. A photograph of the charcoal skeleton was used as the cover for BURZUM's Aske EP in March 1993. Aske was released after the 1993 Bergens Tidende newspaper interview with Vikernes which covered several of the Norwegian church burnings and brought immediate police attention. He was charged with the Fantoft arson during the 1994 trial but was not found guilty for that particular act. Raw news footage of 1992 church arson Foto: Arne Ristesund I was...
