Pfft Rolling Eyes. They don't know what they're missing out on.

@Mirror. Dub Buk took me a while to get into. Was a bit on the fence at first, though their work grew on me. Don't listen to them a lot, but they give a nice listen every so often. Not bothered with their new album, mind.

It grew onto you? What album did you listen to then? I tried all, but it just didn't work for me.

Nokturnal Mortum however, is another story. That is a good band imo.

Misyac Pomsty. Reminds me slightly of Goat Horns era Nokturnal Mortum, actually.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7omlzQhDnYU
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Msr2kjV_AOs (probably, overall, a better track and closer to Nokturnal Mortum's late demo stuff and the first LP)

And yes, Nokturnal Mortum are fantastic. The new album is especially good. Sky of Saddened Nights is one awesome folk track.

Very underrated band. Every output by this band is excellent. 'Ancestor's Shadows' one of their best in my view.

Bringing this thread back up for view.

Anyone else notice that the riff in Soul of the Black Forest from 4:12 through to 5:11 sounds like it stepped straight out from Drudkh's Autumn Aurora?

The drum sound on the last Astrofaes full-length on Supernal completely ruined the album.

Well, they generally are, right?

No way! Only clueless and imbecile Americans who believe the Third Reich was a Hollywood-movie starring Hitler can be "Nazi" exclusively! Wink

@Topic:

Received the remastered re-issues of "Dying Emotions Domain" and "The Eyes of the Beast" that were released by Negative Existence. Looks and sounds superior!!!

Could it be that Astrofaes has been hurt in the past by the "featuring members from *insert band*" stigma? Drudkh came later yes, but gained more populairty. Also Hate Forest became a prominent name in the UG, so perhaps people saw Astrofaes as "that other band Thurios is in, I'll check it out later" kind of thing. When someone has lots bands going some will be more prominent than others. I remember Supernal complaning about the low sales of "Idea.Form.Essence." during the time he decided to end the label. If people buy more Astrofaes stuff these days, it's a good thing.

Those Whose Past is Immortal was a great album so I had picked up 2 other albums some years later and I was very much disappointed. Maybe I should dig them out as I don't remember giving them much time.

I remember there was a fall out between Supernal and the band because of the sales; the band thinking sales were higher than they were and so owed money. There was a statement on the site from Alex K, probably close to the time the label ended.

I think their lack of popularity has more to do with the fact they're just a lot more 'no thrills' than Hate Forest or Drudkh. Great band though. Principle of Existence remains one of my favourite songs of any genre.
