A Loathing Requiem

A Loathing Requiem, a Technical Death metal project, originally conceived as a experiment, was born in early 2007.

Shortly after, Malcolm Pugh, the creator of A Loathing Requiem, recorded several instrumental demos, incorporating brutal and punishing riffs that were also intelligent and catchy. Instantly building interests from the masses upon its release in 2008, the overwhelming demand for full album was undeniable.

In 2009, A Loathing Requiem recorded its full-length debut entitled Psalms Of Misanthropy. With its highly anticipated release on June 2010 it has become the first of many releases of the up and coming independent label, The Artisan Era. This is just the beginning for A Loathing Requiem as it pursues its quest to be a dominant entity in the Tech/Death genre.

Throneum was born in deepest hell dungeons back in 1996.

Kjeld

Invoked from the essence of Frisia in 2004, Kjeld is the embodiment of icy ravage in a black metal vessel. In the first years since its birth, Kjeld has focused on devising its core, and in 2010 their first EP was released. Since this release, the concept of Kjeld was further developed, leading to the debut album Skym, which is to be released through Hammerheart Records.

Drawing inspiration from the history of Frisia, along with ancient rituals, myths and customs, Kjeld's music can be characterized by a blend of cold atmospheric passages and brutal onslaught. Chants are done solely in the Frisian tongue, since this is the only way to connect to the encompassing concept.

Ordinul Negru

This is a new project made by Fulmineos in 2004 into old black metal spheres, influenced by various underground bands from the nineties such as Burzum, Infernum, Countess, Moonblood, Nortt, Vlad Tepes, Arckanum, Shining or Woods Of Infinity.

The first material was a split, For Grey Winter Days, released by Arcana Noctis Label in a select company with Twilight Is Mine (Russia), Cosmic Transmigration (Finland) and Skaur (Norway). It was a very good beginning, the three songs that are on this material have a strange aura and minimalist structure. After this release came the first CD released also at the beginning of 2006 under the specters of the snow. Over The Frozen Battlegrounds was released by Australian label Smell The Stench and had a massive impact in the underground black metal scene world-wide due to great distribution and trades. Now the songs had a more funeral/occult sick dimension due the fact that were also used some additional atmospheric touches with some keyboards and acoustic guitars. Then Ukrainian label De Profundis wanted to release a split with Ordinul Negru{/band], so Fulmineos contributed with some material from the first CD period but only unreleased songs gathered under the Archaic Dreams Of Frost and proposed Mourning Winter as a partner, who re-united after a long silence taking two songs from their debut Draco material and two brand new songs under the banner Pagan Ancestry to complete the scenery. Also in the autumn of 2006 the long-awaited split of Ordinul Negru with Man Among Stars came out as the second official CD of Banatian darkness. The songs of this material evoke the early period from the nineties black metal, raw, painful and true. Ordinul Negru presents four brand new songs while Man Among Stars their second output Shining.
