Despite being formed at the beginning of this century, Sigillum Diabolicum are not exactly the most productive outfit from West-European soil.

Lyon is a very old French city (founded by the Romans more than two millennia ago), at the feet of the Alpes, and not that far away from the Swiss border. The city has a beautiful centre, several acceptable wine houses (it’s there where Rhône and Saone ‘melt’ together), and it houses the head office of Interpol. Lyon also is home to LeibStandarte (not the Greek one), a young formation that recorded and independently released a very limited three-track demo in 2017. FYI: the tracks from that demonstrational recording return on their debut.
Muruth was formed in 2008 by a guy from Slovakia, known as von Ulfhednir. That very same year, a short demonstrational recording was released digitally (with assistance of a session singer), but then things turned into silence.
A short one, for this review is meant as a preview on an upcoming one for the very same band…
[release date: March 25th 2014]
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust…
Short statement: I do a lot to support those labels and bands that, to my opinion, deserve it. That’s why I come up, more than once, with an older release. Okay, it is not ‘up to date’, but whatever. It might deal with something that deserves all additional promotion and support.
At the feet of the Alpes, covered in snow and veiled by icy winds… A Beautiful area, unspoiled nature, nice food, splendid wines (though…) and Walküre… Welcome to Saint-Etienne…
I used to be a ‘fan’ of Sol Invictus, but then I am talking about the project by Death In June’s Tony Wakeford (and apparently they reformed once more – but that is another thing). Another band with this moniker will be my next Sol Invictus adoration.
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust… Hail to purification, death to the inferior spawn of terrorist prophets!
Bolg started their activities at the beginning of this century. Via the American label Acclaim Records (they were quite active in the first decade of this century, then fading away in silence, yet back to business since a couple of years; this recording was their first release, by the way), Bolg released a split with another Bulgarian act, Exile (they reformed, but I’m not sure whether they’re still active as we speak). Then, however, everything turned into silence.
