from the ashes of former black metal bands Melech and the unholy Satyr
project in '96. The line-up was completed in '97 and the first demotape
'Death...Tyranny...War...Blasphemy' was recorded and released in
Eight months after this release, anno 2000, the self financed four track
mCD "True Hate Embodiment" was recorded and released
(Recorded and mixed at Double Noise studios Tilburg, mastered at Harrow
studios, Losser (NL)).
This mCD resulted in a mini-tour with Carpathian Forest, Destroyer666
and Urn through the Netherlands (2001). Opening the No Mercy fest 2002,
and several other gigs with international acts. Many words of praise are
heard in the worldwide press. Eventually a deal with USA based 'Dark Horizon
Records' became a fact.
Anno 2003, debut Full-length 'Universe Of Filth' (Recorded, mixed
& mastered at Excess studios [Rotterdam, NL]) sees the darkness of
this globe trough Dark Horizon Records. Releasedate: 13th of February
The release immediately resulted in an exclusive gig with Satyricon and
Khold at the Groene Engel venue (NL) on the 15th of february 2003.
On the 12th of August 2003 'True Hate Embodiment' was re-released by Macabre
Operetta productions from Holland on 7" vinyl. This item has new
artwork and will be limited. (333 pcs.)
In 2004 SauroN signed a new deal with Dutch 'Neurotic Records'. The second
full-length 'For a Dead race' (again recorded at Double Noise studios,
Tilburg and mastered at Harrow studios, Losser NL), scheduled for release
21-10-2004, is the 'blackest and sickest' release so far. The sound is
more pure, the vocals sicker, the songs better structured and the dedication
to black metal has become more audible. Several live attacks trough Europe
follow upon this release.
In July 2004 a cover from the almighty Bathory namely 'The rite of Darkness',
from the album 'The Return...' was recorded for a tribute Gatefold LP
titled: 'A Tribute From the Hordes to Bathory-From the Underground...For
the Underground.', to be released on Black Goat Productions later in 2005.
This became August 2006
2005 is also the year SauroN's working on a split 7" with Fluisterwoud.
This release has been delayed several times and was spawned upon humanity
in July 2006. Limited to 187 gatefold copies featuring a new track and
the sickest 'Satanic Blood' (Von) cover ever.
2006 also marks the year of another deal, this time with Swedish 'Carnal
Records' to record a third full length, which will be titled: The Channeling
With artwork from Manuel Tinnemans and 8 tracks of blasting black metal,
recorded at Double Noise Studios (Tilburg, The Netherlands) and mastered
at Necromorbus Studios (Sweden) this is the worst spell so far.
