20 Jahre später und der Wahnsinn geht weiter…

...Black Metal in den 90ern in Deutschland. Die zweite Welle aus Norwegen war gerade zu uns herübergeschwappt und ...einige junge Männer hörten den Ruf des Wintermondes.
In den dunklen Dickichten der badischen, schwäbischen, bayrischen und westfälischen Wälder sammelten sich die schwarzen Horden um erste eigene musikalische Gehversuche zu wagen.
Einige dieser unheiligen Zusammenkünfte musizierten nicht mal so schlecht. Unter Ihnen waren auch die Protagonisten unserer Geschichte namentlich
Vergesst nicht, wir sprechen von den 90er Jahren. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt wurden Computer in Büros und auf Ämtern benutzt, Kommunikation musste über Briefe, das Telefon oder gar
persönliche Treffen stattfinden. Musik wurde auf Demokassetten aufgenommen und per Post kostspielig verschickt.
Trotz dieses steinigen Weges schafften es NORDLYS tatsächlich die oben genannten befreundeten Bands am 11.04.1997 zu einem Konzert im legendären U2-Club in Bad Wörishofen zu versammeln.
Ein Abend, der in die Geschichte deutscher Metalkultur eingehen sollte und von dem jeder, der daran teilgenommen hat auch noch heute erzählt.

20 Jahre später sind die meisten der oben genannten Protagonisten immer noch in der Szene aktiv und der Ruf zu den Waffen erschallt nach dieser langen Zeit erneut!
Die Vergangenheit ist zum Leben erweckt worden und wird wiederholt.
Im altehrwürdigen Freiburger Cräsh wird am 25.11.2017 der zweite Teil des deutschen Black-Metal-Wahnsinns stattfinden.
MIGHTIEST und NORDLYS sind noch aktiv. Für NAGELFAR werden KERMANIA und für LUNAR AURORA WELTENGÄNGER auftreten, deren Musiker sich aus den ursprünglichen Bands rekrutieren.
Jetzt haben alte Säcke, wie auch junge Hüpfer die einzigartige Gelegenheit deutschen Black Metal 2017 live im Schwarzwald zu erleben.

Pilgert im Hebst zum Hünengrab, Feiert mit uns diesen Hoagascht und erleuchtet die SinisTerra mit dem Feuer der Nacht!

20 years later the madness continues…

Black Metal in the 90s: Germany. The second wave from Norway had just infected Teutonia and some young men here had heard the call of the wintermoon.
In the dark thickets of the German forests the sinister hordes gathered to play their version of this musical style. Some of these unholy congregations weren't even too bad.
Amongst them were the heroes of our story namely
Mind you we are talking about the 90s. At this very point of time computers were used in offices, communication would happen via the phone, letters or real-life gatherings.
Music was recorded on demotapes and these were posted by real mail. Thus although the game wasn't as easy as today NORDLYS managed to invite the above mentioned bands to legendary U2-Club in Bad Wörishofen.
An Evening that wrote German Metal-History and none of the attendants ever forgot until this day.

20 years later most of the brave warriors are still active and the call to arms is heard once more! The Past is alive and it is being repeated.
The second part of this clash of German Black Metal Maniacs is going to take place in the legendary Club Cräsh on the 25.11.2017 in Freiburg.
MIGHTIEST and NORDLYS are still active. KERMANIA will carry forth the torch of NAGELFAR and WELTENGÄNGER will inherit LUNAR AURORA.
Now you have the one and only chance to witness what you missed 20 years ago. Catch this opportunity and be a part of German Black Metal-Madness 2017.

For the interest of all:
Aran from Lunar Aurora has recently participated in the project Lychgate. Album OUT NOW... Support!

Lychgate was formed in 2011 by Vortigern (guitars) with the collaboration of G. A. Chandler (vocals and guitars), Aran (Bass) and T. J. F. Vallely (drums). The debut album, self-titled, was recorded in 2012 and released in the first quarter of 2013. The debut album material was, however, old before it was recorded; based on pre-Lychgate material from between 2006 and 2010. The response from the press was nevertheless strong, with very positive reviews being common.

Between January 2012 and December 2013, Vortigern wrote material for the second album entitled An Antidote for the Glass Pill, which was almost entirely recorded at Priory Studios intermittently in the second half of 2014. After successful sessions it was then offered to the Finnish/USA label Blood Music (Emperor, Ihsahn, Perturbator, Sigh etc.) who released the work in August 2015. The main focus on this album was with the utilisation of the pipe organ as the backbone to all pieces, where formerly this instrument had only occasional parts to play. To achieve its grandeur and authenticity on recording the band invited Kevin Bowyer to perform the organ parts.

With the second album came a switch to a much more advanced approach to song-writing. The sound which was born represented the meeting of two worlds: the juxtaposition between “correct” harmony (traditional) and departures from it (current). Influences come from classical repertoire (particularly the early 20th century era), the musique concréte movement and 1950s–1970s-era cinema. These range from Art Zoyd and Autopsia, to J. S. Bach, Liszt and Messiaen, to classic names in the metal genre spectrum such as Bathory, Mayhem and Abigor.

In general, Lychgate’s music is often characterised by the dense layering of guitars, stacking together a rich combination of octaves and harmony, which morph with the organ performance, resulting in a unique texture and colour. The compositions often feature variations in tempo, meter and dynamics; sometimes overwhelming in nature such as the crescendo at the end of the track “Letter XIX”. Moods, although mainly atmospheric, range from subdued and reflective to brooding and aggressive. The press have already acknowledged avant-garde overtones in the music, which set the project apart from usual album releases. A European tour was conducted in November 2015 to coincide with the second album release.

The band features members who have been part of other projects such as Esoteric, The One, Macabre Omen, Lunar Aurora and Omega Centauri. The current live line-up features the following members:

G. A. Chandler — Vocals & Guitar
Vortigern — Guitar, Vocals & Piano
T. J. F. Vallely — Drums
S. D. Lindsley — Guitar
A. K. Webb — Bass

it has always been clear that also LUNAR AURORA will end some day. And this autumn we felt that it is time to lay the band to rest. We came to that decision for various reasons, the two following may be the most significant. On one hand our imaginations of future musical projects are difficu...
