BLACK CITADEL / FUNERAL ALTAR "Split" MC

Black Citadel are cast in miscreancy and devil worship from a previously unreleased EP, originally titled "Mausoleum of Satan's Vengeance". Funeral Altar's hellish atrocities are to be considered Demo II, a four part Satanic Monument of Desecration Prophecies.

Order: http://t-d-g.net/products/black-citadel-funeral-altar-split-mc



BLOOD ISCARIOT "Rotten Pose" MC

From the creepiest gutter of Glasgow emerges Blood Iscariot. Ritualistic and hateful black ambient soundscapes of mysterious possessed fumes. A journey to a darkened world of meditative hatred and venomous spiritualism.

GOLDEN DAWN / APEIRON "Split Demo 95" Double CD

We cannot stress enough how crucial this recording is within the canon of Austrian black metal, and it is truly time to recognize the importance of these projects and the dynamic world created by Golden Dawn and its architect, Stefan Traunmuller. There are a lot of old demos getting reissue treatment these days, and within that spectrum there are many which have the charm and nostalgia of being from another era, but few of these recordings stand on their own as fully-conceived and fleshed out works of art. This release is not only remarkable for its expansive range of styles but for the sheer scope of vision that’s rarely found on the demo tape format. I can personally assure you that this is one of those rarest dark gems that up until now has criminally gone, for the most part, unacknowledged. Golden Dawn formed as a one man project around 1993 and unleashed their great debut demo “Lullaby” two years later. The initial style of music is a combination of raw nordic black metal with a huge reliance on keyboards and ambient passages to provide a deeper and more mystical feeling that empowers the music. Also in 1995, Traunmuller decided to release a split between his main project Golden Dawn and a new project, Apeiron, one that was purely dark ambient based. The result was the split demo 95 (originally issued on Impure Creations, France). The style of black metal here is epic in terms of complexity of composition and epic in terms of the majestic feeling enveloping each song. The collection is truly a masterful execution of medieval ambient passages paired with raw atmospheric black metal. One thing that really stands out is how varied the style is across these recordings, yet it’s cohesion as an entire story or epic tale is incredibly consistent. Within the boundaries of black metal and dark ambient Traunmuller was wildly inventive and his courage really shines listening to this musical odyssey over 20 years later. Not only is this a prime example of raw, demo-era BM from Austria (see: Abigor, Summoning, Pazuzu, Trifixion, Amestigon et al) but the Apeiron material is also some of the strongest dark-ambient (or dark-wave) music from within the mid-nineties black metal scene. Whereas virtually all of these types of projects are wholly indebted to Mortiis (and the style he defined), Apeiron has more of a unique identity that draws from the cosmic synthesizer music of Jean-Michel Jarre or ancient eastern meditation music. Now with this keyboard driven style enjoying a revival (sometimes referred to as ‘dungeon-synth’), the importance of these recordings is more crucial than ever.

DROWNING THE LIGHT "Within the Sour Soil of the Mind" MC

Almost a decade has passed since the first chapter of the Obscure Worship Chronicles was recorded, and 8 years since chapter 4 "Elixir of Rancid Dreams & Broken Memories". Yet even though so much time has passed, the rotten summer of 2016 started to corrode the mind and thus the final part of the series, chapter 5, "Within the Sour Soil of the Mind" was recorded, with hints to past recordings, nods to past nods, as well as it's own obscure and sombre darkness. Again, this is not Black Metal material, this is highly improvised poisoned ambient and distorted synth material filled with sorrow and pure nightmare fuel. As thus we woke up from the rain... and walked straight into the storm... Limited to 100 copies only.

NOCTURNAL CHALICE "Forgotten Voices Sing Again" MC

The final chapter of the Nocturnal Chalice demo trilogy, recorded prior to the release of the first demo under the Tour de Garde coat of arms. Once again, Nocturnal Chalice has resurrected the classic and grim black metal sound of the late nineties using epic melodies for sinister black metal outbursts. It's now time to embark on this final journey to the darkest memories of a now distant past....

NEIGE ET NOIRCEUR "Verglaspolis" Pro-MC

Within ice and darkness, a city rises. "Verglapolis", Neige et Noirceur's latest opus is a strong alloy of frequencies where heavy guitars, keyboards and hypnotizing drones collide with drums, like frost on huge metallic towers. Inspired by the tragic ice storm of 1998 in Québec, this album demonstrates once more Neige et Noirceur's skills and versatility. "Verglapolis" is a unique collection of metal, drone and ambient tracks, the supreme reign of the freezing cold and shadows.

PAGAN HELLFIRE "ON THE PATH TO TRIUMPH" 12"LP

Pagan Hellfire is one of the best and oldest Canadian black metal hordes. Their fifth album is no different than all their previous efforts, a restless, powerful and epic black metal journey. A spark from the now forgotten genuine days of the 90s, Pagan Hellfire is staying true to the original black metal sound and ideal. Tour de Garde is proud to collaborate on the vinyl version of another Pagan Hellfire masterpiece.

AMESTIGON "Through the Ages we preserve / Mysterious Realms" Pro-MC

A glorious relic from the forgotten times of Austrian black metal underground.... The first two demos from Amestigon, "Through the Ages we preserve..." (1995) and "Mysterious Realms" (1995), are now gathered on a single pro-cassette release including the rare "Moon turning red" track which originally appeared "The first Battle Cry" (1994). Amestigon were sailing the same waters as Abigor and Summoning, signed a contract with Napalm Records back in the day, and were having everything in hand to become as known as their countrymates. Tour de Garde is honored to finally make these rare recordings available again on cassette format. If you were not lucky enough to obtain a copy of these demos back then or if you simply weren't there, it's your chance to grab a parcel of what you missed... The pure essence of the true black metal underground.

Order: http://t-d-g.net/products/amestigon-through-the-ages-we-preserve-mysterious-realms-pro-mc



AMESTIGON "Remembering Ancient Origins" Pro-MC

Originally released as an highly limited CD-R and available for the first time on cassette, "Remembering Ancient Origins" is a monument of supreme Austrian black metal art. Four epic, glorious and frightening sinister hymns and an intro, all recorded back in 1999. It's now your chance to hold in your hands one of the purest and rarest artifacts of the almighty Austrian black metal underground.

DIAPSIQUIR "180°" Pro-MC

There are people who love, there are people who hate. Diapsiquir is an installment that divides, welcome to "180°" and if you don't like it please leave now... A chaotic, poetic and realistic voyage into Damien and Pascal's reality. Diapsiquir escapes the nostalgic fantasies of the metal underground to create a profound analysis of their life and the modern world that surrounds them. Musically somewhere in between Fantomas, Assassin and Jacques Brel, Diapsiquir provides a new kind of music for a new kind of listener. It's now time to leave the past behind... Be warned that understanding French is a must to enjoy the poetry behind this masterpiece.

SAPAUDIA "Sainte nuit" Pro-MC

The relatively unknown Sapaudia might be a whisper from the depths of the French black metal underground but a recent addition to this French unit’s lineup has made a very interesting case for exploring. Re-introducing Swedish black metal vocalist and weirdo extraordinaire Ravenlord, formerly of Woods of Infinity fame, the powerful, morose atmospheric black metal defined in Sapaudia’s debut, which is actually featured in a subsequent section, Sapaudia’s sonic depression takes on a much more sinister, desperate persona. Youngster Duc de Sapaudia’s traditional take on a more depressive black metal sound which wouldn’t sound out of place on a shelf with Shining and Drudkh, pairs perfectly with Ravenlord’s over-the-top shrieks and wails. Though this ultimately leaves us with an unquenchable thirst for more Woods of Infinity, Sapaudia fills the void left in their absence surprisingly well.

Order: http://t-d-g.net/products/sapaudia-sainte-nuit-pro-mc



COFFINSHADE "Songs for the Sleeping Dead" Pro-MC

Gloomy, mysterious and depressive black metal created by darkened souls from the U.S. (Lord Psychosis) and Poland (Cmentarna Dusza). Coffinshade's "Songs for the Sleeping Dead" is a revival of forgotten sorrow and of living nightmares. Raw, atmospheric and yet progressive underground black metal to its best... A magnificient release to listen to on rainy days or solitary nights.

Drowning the Light return with this journey through the river of stars and into the tenth region of the night, where the chaos serpent Apep/Apophis lurks, awaiting to strike Ra and devour his Ka. Time is reversed and darkness consumes the light. In this abyss we are one of many coils, Apeps circle tightening to strangle and crush the living world, creation shall be un-made as we enter reverse into the mirrors of this world. Nothing shall halt the desire for primal chaos and the unquenchable thirst to drain the blood of this world. Dark, melancholic and epic Black Metal.

NOCTURNAL CHALICE "Sorcery Under Blackened Skies" MC

Nocturnal Chalice present their second demo of true, old school and hateful black metal. Originating from Glasgow, Scotland, this young project is again offering a surprisingly grim and obscure recording. A chilling and masterfully crafted sound evoking the glorious days of the mid/late nineties. This four song demo is rooted in the same place as some of the best classic from that era such as Seigneur Voland, Chemin de Haine or Osculum Infame.

Order: http://t-d-g.net/products/nocturnal-chalice-sorcery-under-blackened-skies-mc

Bestial, chaotic and sinister debut demo of Funeral Altar, a one-man black metal band originating from the deepest pit of the U.S. Utterly rough recording in the pure underground tradition which generate and atmosphere of uncompromised evil.

FROZEN SHADOWS "Dans les bras des immortels" Pro-MC

In the late nineties Québec was still awaiting its first true black metal album to be released. There was almost no one playing black metal yet over here back in those distant times, however there was Frozen Shadows. The follow up to their ferocious 1996 "Empire de glace" demo was their debut full length album: "Dans les bras des immortels". An opus that represents well its era with glorious melodies, atmospheric acoustic passages, epic synths, insanely fast drumming and furious vocals. Sang both in French and English, this album has a unique atmosphere and treads the path for all Québec black metal hordes that followed. Les productions Hérétiques finally reissued this highly important and timeless North American black metal classic. A totally mandatory masterpiece that deserves to be in any respectable black metal collection.

ULVESANG "Ulvesang" Pro-MC

Born in the ocean flanked forests of Nova Scotia on Canada’s East Coast, Ulvesang came into existence as the collective effort of three individuals who shared a love of atmospheric and melancholic music. Recognizing an unfortunate lack of adventurous local dark folk music, and raised on a diet of classic Neofolk, Black Metal atmospherics and bizarre occultism, the Ulvesang collective set about crafting their first suite of songs as a public offering. Recommended for fans of Ulver and Empyrium.

Inspired by the wilderness of Québec, the occult, death, and fear, Cantique Lépreux creates music that is at times grim, at other times melancholic; a work born of passion, paying homage to the legends of black metal.

Hailing from India, Démonos are a black metal duo who derive ancient esoteric wisdom from the occult, nature, and theology. Démonos reflect the futility of ever-spawning man-made doctrines rising out of those that dictate the race of most humankind. Philosophically, both the sound and imagery is aimed to thwart all known dictates of empty societal conformity as a whole. This is to be achieved and practiced through hymns and transmissions ebbing beyond human planes and across endless celestial realms.

Led by the entity Démonos Obscurís, who after years of malefic presence in the Indus underground, has now embarked upon a sonic journey to conjure dark apocalyptic music featuring collaborations with artists of analogous equivalence. Across four tracks in 23 minutes, From Sacred to Profane conjures an avant-garde atmosphere firmly entrenched in the purest black arts. It is a sound both ageless and timeless, the commingling of demonology and the occult spread forth by enshrouded parapsychological spirit-beings. Now, with the alliance between Tour de Garde and Iron Bonehead, Démonos are prepared to lift their veil and traverse the cosmos with "From Sacred to Profane".

LUNAR WOMB "The Sleeping Green" Pro-MC

A delightful treasure unearthed from the past. A grandiose, unreleased recording of dungeon synth tainted with layers inspired by classical music and medieval motion picture soundtracks. Composed and recorded by Henri Sorvali, also known as Trollhorn (from Moonsorrow, Finntroll, etc) back in 1998-1999, "The Sleeping Green" recording has never seen the light on a physical format until today. For this special occasion, this green pro-cassette version include a never published bonus track recorded back in 1997 entitled "Eben Ocean". "Eben Ocean" is a long, trance inducing, ethereal composition that recalls Klaus Schulze's work, or even modern darkened techno such as Demdike Stare and the like.

COFFINSHADE "Demo I" MC

Debut demo of Coffinshade, a depressive black metal collaborative project between two underground devotees from Poland and the U.S. An eerie, macabre and transcendental recording that seems to come from another time when the second wave of black metal arose. Coffinshade's first offering definitely recalls the early days of the Norwegian scene when bands such as Burzum, Strid or Forgotten Woods were pushing the boundaries of desperate sounds in metal music. A masterfully executed demo that perfectly captures the original feeling of depressive black metal.

Sample: http://coffinshade.bandcamp.com/

MOONKNIGHT / RHUITH "To Love is to Destroy" MC

A reunion between American and Italian black metal experimentalists. Moonknight is the project of Horus also known as James Brown III of Harassor from the United States. Moonknight plays on this recording mysterious black metal with a prominent electric bass guitar line and dynamic misty rhythms. A very catchy and well made recording that despite having some pop elements, remains mysterious. Rhuith, from Italy, presents post-black metal with ambient touches leading to captivating and haunting soundscapes. Influenced by post punk, grunge and gothic rock, Rhuith has created a unique piece of spontaneous dark grooves and ethereal depression.

FAUSE KNICHT "Demo I" MC

Fause Knicht is a newly born mystic project of oddly crafted lo-fi dungeon synth from the United States. This debut demo offers a unique approach of the genre while crafting its melody in sheer minimalist form. Drifting under the underworlds, Fause Knicht's atmosphere will take you on a journey far away from anything including their peers of the genre. A pure underground jewel that deserves to be discovered.

Sample: http://fauseknicht.bandcamp.com/
Order here: http://t-d-g.net/collections/cassettes/products/fause-knicht-demo-i-mc



GWYLLGI "Demo I: Fields of Sorrow" MC

Raw, epic and hypnotic black metal from the United States. Evolving somewhere in between the lines of the BlazeBirth Hall hordes and American peers such as Xasthur, Gwyllgi reached to assembled compositions deserted of most terrestrial feelings to leave only misanthropy and a thin trace of hatred.

Sample: http://gwyllgi.bandcamp.com/album/demo-i-fields-of-sorrow
Order here: http://t-d-g.net/collections/cassettes/products/gwyllgi-demo-i-fields-of-sorrow-mc



GWYLLGI "Demo II: Skies of Ruin" MC

Pursuing their raw, atmospheric and hypnotic black metal journey with an even more primitive edge. The second offering of Gwyllgi still evolves somewhere in between the lines of the BlazeBirth Hall hordes and American peers such as Xasthur. However, this second chapter of their history sounds even more arid and distant than its predecessor.

Sample: http://gwyllgi.bandcamp.com/album/demo-ii-skies-of-ruin
Order here: http://t-d-g.net/collections/cassettes/products/gwyllgi-demo-ii-skies-of-ruin-mc



NOCTURNAL CHALICE "The Hidden Order" MC

Melodious fury filled with ancient hatred from the heart of Scotland. The debut demo of Nocturnal Chalice is highly promising showing off two tracks of pure black metal in the mid / late nineties way. Recalling what was the greatest era of true black metal the proper way, this demo is truly a dark pearl in the dust...

LETHAL SIEGE "Demo I" MC

Vile and noisy blackened punk metal filled with war-like intensity from Dallas, Texas. This debut demo cassette contains four composition of utterly harsh and sinister compositions as well as a Bathory cover.

Order here: http://t-d-g.net/collections/cassettes/products/lethal-siege-demo-i-mc



ORDER OF DARKNESS "Untitled" MC

Bizarre, raw black metal steeped in cavernous atmosphere with unconventional musical structure and vocals. Order of Darkness oddly composed songs using programmed drums and distant mysterious vocals are creating the sound of an occult torture chamber being spied by the listeners. A very weird and captivating debut demo.

Order here: http://t-d-g.net/products/order-of-darkness-order-of-darkness-mc



MORBID LAMENT "Rise Again... Till Dawn" MC

Morbid Lament are new comers of the Quebec vast black metal scene. They are offering a genre of black metal rarely performed by their French Canadian peers, old school primitive black metal obsessed by vampyrism and horror. Inspired by the pioneers of the european black metal scene such as Celtic Frost, Bathory and Beherit they created a fiercely possessed debut demo. Morbid Lament sounds somewhere in between Satanic Tyrant Werwolf's Orlok and Cultes des Ghoules with, obviously, their own Québec black metal twist.

ARTIFACT OF SKULLS "Brutalization of the Chirst" MC

Reissue of the second full-length album from the Lord of one-man black / death metal with more unrelenting brutality and ferocity than ever before. This Artifact of Skulls demo was previously released as very limited runs that sold out very quickly. Programmed drums, , macabre and obscure guitar riffs, guttural vocals and a violent aura that brings to mind the most obscure and hated demos of the nineties.

CHHINNAMASTAS: "Vajra-Sarpa" MC

"What metaphysics understands by immortality and by eternity implies and demands of every man a total and uncompromising denial of himself and a final mortification, to be dead and buried in the Godhead." Ananda Coomaraswamy. Chhinnamasta, forged from the antediluvian rituals and flames from the chasms of Vedic Kaliksetra, is a congregation of beings of the nether realms. "Vajra-Sarpa", our opus, is presented in the purest devotion to the supramental 'otherness' of the Being manifested from the symbolic juxtaposition of the thunderous deva Indra, i.e., strength, will, life, immortality and the draconian asura Vritra, i.e., death, devouring and absolute consumption resulting in the demiurge of the thunder god pushing up the sky to let in the Ushas or the illumination of a primal root. This work is a tribute to that primeval root. "His overshadowing is both Aeviternity and Death!" Rig Veda, X.121.2

ESKER "Sure les ailes du corbeau" Pro-MC

Esker is a cult band in the Québec scene, that has played an important role in its evolution.
Not only was this one of the earliest bands from Québec City, Esker also played live quite a lot in their prime.

Esker creates cold and tortured black metal, alternating between violent riffs and other more mid-tempo paced parts, all brilliantly executed.

SLÆGT "Ildsvanger" Super Jewel Case CD

Performed and recorded by protagonist Oskar J. Frederiksen with drums by Adam Kjær Nielsen. "Ildsvanger" follows the same path as laid out on their earlier releases but the ten tracks that shape this album takes us much further into the darkness.
With Ildsvanger, Slægt manages to deliver some of the hardest hitting anthemic black metal magic that has come out of Denmark in a long time!
Bonus tracks include the demo and split with White Medal. Produced in collaboration with Vama Marga (Germany) and Final Agony Records (United States of America).

Just spun this one. One long mostly mid-tempo BM song, pretty good, real drums, simple riff, good atmosphere. Sandwiched by 2 ambient pieces that fit well but seem a bit more prepared / digital than they are organic...they don't really seemlessly blend with the BM track but overall it was a good listen, quite short...

This might be not the best place to ask, but it's my best shot.
Will the Akitsa Goetie 2LP on Hospital Productions be distributed in Europe?

Thank you for any info regarding this.
