In our ongoing investigation of deceptive and outright fraudulent extreme metal acts, we pull the rug under a handful of established outfits that don’t even seem to bother hiding that they are after your money first, artistic integrity a distant second - an audience satisfaction not even registering. The more we pull away the blinds the more obvious these practices become. Maybe your favorite band is in here, maybe your life-long inspiration only cares about the dollars/euros you’re giving him/her? Don’t be fooled, there are plenty of honest, hard-working metal bands everywhere in the scene. It’s just that these money-hungry, artistically vacuum units make it difficult for everybody involved. These bands stopped caring, they lost the passion and fire. In short: they Sold Their Souls...
we managed to write something
"Iänkaikkinen, pysyvä, muuttumaton pimeys" (2013)When grown men (and women) paint their faces, sport inverted crosses and spent more time acquiring the right wardrobe than they do writing and rehearsing, I can’t help but crack a smile at the ridiculousness of the endeavour. Arsonist Lodge, who undoubtly admire the Norwegian churchburners of the ‘90s, are however a solid act within this genre. As you can probably guess this is another one-man...
"Ov Qliphoth and Darkness" (2013)What a pleasant surprise. I’m not familiar with this band’s debut record from a couple of years ago, but if this record is any indication it is at least a curiosity worth seeking out. Italy has always had a knack for the theatrical, and this band is no different in that regard. Atmosphere, so often lacking in modern extreme metal albums, is something that oozes from every pore of this record. ...

new stuff from us
I had some material done already before the demise of Lord Belial. Some of the material was actually intended for the next Lord Belial album, but since we disbanded I changed around all of the ideas into new songs.

Norwegian black metallers DEN SAAKALDTE signs with Agonia Records.
added by: Olo
Many dramatic changes occured during the last one year in Den Saakaldte’s reality.
When Niklas decided no longer to continue with the band, many things passed from our minds…even just dropping the whole damn thing off.
After the band discussing and coming to the conclusion that all the members wanted Den Saakaldte to continue being active as a way of artistic expression but also as in a lifestyle attitude for us, we decided that certain things had to be put down and start all over again.
Agonia Records that has been following our ways and sharing our ideas on how things should be, gave us the opportunity to built the foundations for Kapittel II:Faen I Helvete on solid ground. Filip showed to us with quite devotion, the how much he wanted the band in Agonia Records’ roster.
We are looking forward to start with the recordings and we are even more excited to hear soundscapes, having now Mr Hægeland as frontman.
The future looks dark ...and quite much pissed off.
Notodden, 18th of July, 2011
