Dødheimsgard (sometimes shortened as DHG) was originally a Norwegian black metal band formed in 1994, but 1999’s 666 International saw them change into an experimental and avant-garde metal band. They went through some lineup changes, replacing Aldrahn, Zweizz and Czral.
“Dødheimsgard” is a conjunction of three words: Død which means death, heim which means home and gard which means (at least in this context) mansion. A natural translation into English would be “Mansion of Death”, alternatively Realm of the Dead/Death.
The band is currently working on a new album and is working to release it on tour in October.
A Norwegian black metal band. It was founded in 1992, when 14-year-old Stian André Hinderson aka Nagash started writing music with Glaurung and Fafnir. When Glaurung and Fafnir left the project, Nagash continued Troll as a solo project and released Trollstorm over Nidingjuv in 1995 and Drep de Kristne in 1996. The latter album (the title means “Kill the Christians”) had an emphasis on anti-Christian lyrics.
Following the release of Drep de kristne, Nagash spent more time working with other bands such as Dimmu Borgir (bass guitar, back vocal) and his other band Covenant (now The Kovenant).
Troll became a full live band in 2009 and will do their first tour in October 2013.
Our journey towards places far beyond comprehension began in the year 1997 and after several musical and mystical works, we have established our Cult in the Old World and started another kind of Occult Black Art different from what it was before and more focused upon the understanding of the Unknown.
As brethren we are currently working in our second magickal Opus which will breath the putrefaction after the tormenting vibrations of "Exaltation of Wisdom" and whose name will be shown once we foresee the perfect moment...
This path will continue through ways that nobody ever has touched and when the sky burns and the angels drop from the sky as stars fall into the Nothingness, our name will be there and our Spirit shall prevail with "Ain Soph" the Great Darkness...
IA IA IA LUCIFER SABAOTH!
IO IO IO ICHUROUS BAPHOMETH!
