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.

Plaguewielder

The motivation behind the new project was the relative lack of Doom Metal bands in Luxembourg and the founders profound interest for the genre - as such they decided to enter the local music scene with their new band Plaguewielder.

Bands
Death Dealer

It's hard to argue with the pedigree of a band that includes members that worked with Manowar, The Dictators, Rob Halford, Lizzy Borden, Udo Dirkschneider, and Cage. And that's exactly who the members of the newly launched Death Dealer were previously associated with - vocalist Sean Peck, guitarists Ross The Boss and Stu Marshall, bassist Mike Davis, and drummer Steve Bolognese.

As evidenced by their debut album, War Master, Death Dealer's mastery of authentic metal has been put to use straight away. "The Death Dealer sound is a mighty combination of five very talented, seasoned musicians," explains Ross. "It's classic power metal with the brutal edge of thrash, speed, and precision."
