TOUR DE GARDE official releases & updates topic:


Posted: Sat Jul 14, 2018 1:55 pm


SANCTUAIRE / SALE FREUX "Traverser les tempêtes / Freux-fuyant" 10"MLP

A gathering of French black metal from Québec and France. A split in the vein of those released at a time when true black metal underground was at its peak. Sanctuaire's side features one long track of ethereal, atmospheric heathen black metal. Sanctuaire is the creation of one of the most important figures of the Métal Noir Québecois: Monarque Helserkr. "Traverser les tempêtes" is a genuinely crafted Métal Noir Québecois anthem which features hypnotizing synth and epic guitar riffing. On the other side, Sale Freux unleashes two songs of furious and mysterious rural French black metal. Sale Freux keeps things as they should be, by crafting traditional black metal tracks that hark back to the time of early underground Norwegian acts such as Isvind or Strid. This release, a coproduction between Tour de Garde and France D'Oïl Productions, reminisces on 10"MLP releases of the early 2000s produced by labels such as Sombre Records or End All Life Productions. Limited to 300 hand-numbered copies.

DROWNING THE LIGHT "Varcolaci Rising" MC

Drowning the Light return from the shadows with "Varcolaci Rising"! Originally meant to be to a mini-album to be written and recorded during the lunar cycle - from the new moon of the 26th of April to the new moon on the 26th of May. inspiration struck in isolation and darkness and soon this vampyric offering evolved and bled out into a full length album. Focusing on lycanthropy and vampyrism, and in particular the Varcolaci, a reoccurring creature which has had hymns sung in its name since the very first Drowning the Light album, "Drowned". The Varcolaci are shape shifting vampires associated with the astral plane, and able to assume many forms. In folklore, the Varcolaci were believed to be responsible for eclipses or the blood moon, drinking the blood and essence of the sun and moon. Often described as small wolf-like dragons, winged phantoms, dogs (2 in number), or creatures with many mouths or tendrils that suck like octopus tentacles. The cosmic vampire Varcolaci is said to be the result of a woman spinning thread in the dark or under moonlight. This thread then becomes a bridge for the Varcolaci to wander through the portals of the cosmos, as long as the thread does not break the Varcolaci has power, and can attack the heavenly bodies, drinking from the moon. In modern vampyric magick, the Varcolaci assumes astral form to gain the essence and energy from sleeping victims. "Varcolaci Rising" is comprised of 8 tracks of dark, melancholic and soaring vampyric black metal. Drink in the night air, bask in the lunar rays, and revel in the coming darkness...

DROWNING THE LIGHT "Paradise Slaves" MC
After "Varcolaci Rising", Drowning The Light is back on the path to the upcoming full-length entitled “Conquer and Serve” (the one originally planned after "From the Abyss"). This path however is not a silent one. Thus the "Paradise Slaves" EP is recorded, delving into the weakness of mankind being slaves to their delusions of paradise, enslaved by feeble dogmas of corrosive and crumbling belief systems, as well as exploring the darker mindset that some serial killers have expressed - that those they kill will become their slaves in the afterlife. This EP is one of raw and melancholic black metal.

HYLSTER "Hylster" MC

Hylster is a rhythmic, chaotic, atmospheric, torturous, synth-driven raw audial evil entity that could be described as a mixture of Abruptum and Menace Ruine. Hylster’s debut demo was recorded at Mayhem, Copenhagen and offers four tracks of evil created by two furious souls of the Korpsånd circle. This cassette offers a fresh new interpretation of what experimental black metal can be, while staying loyal to true black metal standards. The best of both worlds.

OLD TOWER "Stellary Wisdom" 12"LP

Old Tower is the creation of a mysterious entity from The Netherlands known as The Specter who, through the vessel of Old Tower, creates alluring yet meditative otherworldly lo-fi synth music that transports the listener to a long forgotten age of memory’s past. Old Tower started in the summer of 2015 with the first recordings being rather minimalistic and primitive. It was through the split with Orodruin when the concept of Old Tower and The Shadow Kingdom came into existence and since then, Old Tower has collected an alluring repertoire through split-cassette releases and cassette EPs that culminated with the first Old Tower full-length "The Rise Of The Specter" released early 2017. The whole concept surrounding Old Tower and The Shadow Kingdom is that they are both very personal projects. In an age where a lot of “dungeon synth” is just dull fantasy music without too much thought behind it, this is not the case with Old Tower. Old Tower is a reflection of The Specter’s personal inner world and experiences in real life. The Shadow Kingdom can be seen as a dimension, a metaphor for the world that everyone experiences, but cannot see or do not want to feel; the solitude and darkness that resides in us all. Old Tower is a resistance towards modernity and the shallow values which our society is built upon. The visions that are formed when consuming the sounds of Old Tower are that of mystical desolate landscapes, majestic ancient ruins, deep dark decrepit dungeons, murky chambers, and ghostly moonlit forests. Meditative audial spells dedicated to the eternal dark war. This vinyl edition comes on a beautiful 12"LP with insert. Black vinyl version.

Sold out almost immediately after being revealed, this demo now fetches relatively high collector prices within the underground ranks - truly outstanding among the current Quebec elite. This new vinyl edition comes with a completely remastered sound for optimum sound quality without sacrificing the candle-lit cryptic atmosphere of the original release.

CURVED BLADE / PÂLEMORT "At the Bottom of the Hourglass / Vision d’une ère suprême" 7"EP

Curved Blade are back from the grave with a malicious hymn of malignant evil. “At the Bottom of the Hourglass" is a raw, atmospheric and sentencing black metal composition sending its curse upon humanity itself. Curved Blade features members of Ash Pool, Bone Awl and Akitsa. Pâlemort is straight-forward, grim and hateful black metal from Quebec that previously released a successful demo a few months ago. This time around, Pâlemort presents an unrelenting and ferocious, yet glorious song of true black metal in its purest glory. This split 7"EP comes on black vinyl and is limited to 300 copies.

CARVED CROSS / MALPHAS "Split" 7"EP

Australia’s most inaccessible raw black metal trio teams up with Toronto's own Oi! induced black metal warriors on this split release of vile hatred.

Carved Cross present a lengthy song of harsh and minimalistic, but memorable, utterly raw black metal from down under. With this song, they’ve created an unbearable, heavy and pounding atmosphere of fierce disgust. Malphas drop two songs of stomping black metal strength. After a short synth intro, you'll dive into the abrasive and freezing guitar sound that clashes with hateful vocals and warmarch-like drum patterns.

This split 7"EP comes on black vinyl and is limited to 300 copies.

VERVAL "WEDERKEER" Digipak CD

In the spirit of the old days, Tour de Garde is proud to present the debut album of Verval under its coat of arms. Verval is a Dutch atmospheric black metal project by W. Damiaen (Laster, Willoos, White Oak, etc) and R. Schmidt (Wrang) and is a step away from what you would usually expect from Tour de Garde. Inspired by the glorious days of Misanthropy Records (Burzum, Ved Buens Ende, In the Woods...), Tour de Garde brings you Verval's "Wederkeer" which consists of three long, epic and profound compositions of gloomy atmospheres and immersive vibes. This digipak compact disc is presented on uncoated stock featuring an incredible painting by Jeff Grimal and also includes a four page booklet with all lyrics.

INFERNO REQUIEM "Nüwa" Pro-MC

"Nüwa" is the last conceptual album from Taiwanese black metal horde, Inferno Requiem. Originally released last year, this album represents both something old-fashioned as well as something new. It features figures whom are quite acquainted with and knowledgeable of black metal. The theme is taken from a legendary myth of an utterly forgotten tale in Chinese history. While considered unholy and unorthodox to some, one can only dare to raise thoughts against today’s brainwashed version of the so-called "common history" we read of today. As Inferno Requiem always does, sci-fi elements are incorporated with a tone of forewarning prophecy. Musically, the album is pure, primitive black metal that is represented by the freezing cold atmosphere...something that has always been a staple of true black metal.

Stream: http://ir-fog.bandcamp.com/album/n-wa
Order: http://t-d-g.net/products/inferno-requiem-nuwa-pro-mc



INFERNO REQUIEM "Moon" Pro-MC

"Moon" is the latest mini-album by Taiwanese black metal legends, Inferno Requiem after a lengthy hiatus! Misanthropic, dark, and solitary as always, the theme is of ancient myth and conspiracy. Originally published and distributed by the most well-known underground extreme label in Taiwan, GhostValley Records who are a milestone and set the pace for the entire Asian black metal scene. The successful combination of early raw Northern European style and current depressive elements along with the themes of ancient oriental mythology make Inferno Requiem a unique subject to behold.

ALRUNA "Relieving the Altar" MC

Here comes the second offering by the mysterious and utterly obscure raw black metal outfit originating from the darkest pit of Linz, Austria.

PÉNOMBRE "Méphistophélès (ou le Diable sur terre)" Pro-MC

Pénombre is yet another new project from Québec’s effervescent black metal underground. Originating from the island of Montreal, Pénombre performs ancient sounding theological black metal inspired by Polish and Norwegian classics.

Drawing their lyrical inspiration from the darker aspect of the New Testament, Pénombre will embrace your soul and drag it to the depths of Hell.

DUSKHYMN / KHLAMYYDIA "Black Wings of the North" MC

A split cassette of true ancestral black metal hate! Here we have two spirited, vigorous and violent black metal hordes from the United Kingdom who’ve gathered to take a stand against the current state of the scene. "Black Wings of the North" is a furious fist in the face of trends and modernity. Duskhymn is the successor of Nocturnal Chalice and continues with the same hate-filled and defying raw black metal grimness inspired by the tenure of the genre. Khlamyydia express their disgust for the modern black metal scene using a furiously harsh sound and monotonous filthy vocals recalling the glorious days of the Black Legions.

Order: http://t-d-g.net/products/duskhymn-khlamyydia-black-wings-of-the-north-mc



PURITY RENAISSANCE "Promo" MC

Utterly dark and cruel black metal hymns inspired by victorious times.

WINTER BLACKNESS "Freezing Aura of Blackened Depths" Pro-MC

The debut album by one of the most promising contemporary acts of Poland. This is the continuity of the almighty Necrostrigis who previously released some material under the Tour de Garde coat of arms. "Freezing Aura of Blackened Depths" is an opus that revives the hateful spirit from the wintry Polish forests. Recalling classics of the genre from the likes of Sacrilegium, Infernum and early North. Winter Blackness strives to instill a a feeling of absolute isolation, which is seldom rivaled. This release features guest keyboards by Grimspirit of Evilfeast, as well as a cover of Burzum's classic hymn "The Lost Forgotten Sad Spirit." The wolves have woken...

SEIDR "Frostbreed" MC

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.

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.

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.

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.

MÉSALLIANCE "Ère Rance" Pro-MC

Mésalliance is the recently born child of the New wave of French black metal.
Following the path of its forefathers such as Peste Noire, Baise ma hache and Sale Freux, Mésalliance create a genuine mixture of traditional black metal, contemporary black metal and heavy metal. All of it with a depraved punk attitude mainly expressed through scavenger vocals. "Ère Rance" displays the current state of France's true, young, depraved and whiskey fuelled eyes.

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

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.
