Country : UK
Genre    : Psychedelic Black Metal

01. God
02. Female
03. Male
04. Earth and Matter
05. Microcosm

My Comment
huh? Psychedelic? Whats that? Well psychedelic is some soft of mind manifesting. Track 1 start with noisy riff and melancholic violin. Its like song from My Dying Bride - For my fallen angel with noisy riff. (lool the violin is played by My Dying Bride Member !!).  After long intro and comes the dark deep growl. Nice growl dude. Em..very interesting dark rythm in track 2. Now i can feel what the psychedelic is about. The sound of drum not very clear in fast mode. Track 3 is quite bored at beginning. I pick track 2 and 5 as good to hear.

05. Åttiosextusenfyrahundra
06. Neka Morgondagen

My Comment
Gun in mouth? are they sound thrash? or old skool BM? or Impaled Nazarene? hell no. They are more on depressive BM. Most of the sound not very heavy like other BM out there. Not stereotype BM or depressive either. I can feel it like Opeth style in black mode.They are combining slow and fast rythm, with melancolic solo and acoustic part supporting ambient sound by keyboard. Most of lyric is based on depressive and hate. All the growl pitch accordingly to rythm. I really enjoying all their songs. Looking forward for you guys.
Salute them !!

Opening intro with nice keyboard sound, em..idk how to describe them.
growl not in high pitch, a bit harsh with some deep growl (so many scream). their keyboard act superb (maintaining dark symphonic sound that been mess up by guitar..loool ). guitar riff was fast & solo too (many variation in riff that me wonder, its mix black death -_-). Awesome drum also (following keyboard rythm). ok back to the album, for me...em..they still searching their trademark. i pick Track 6, Track 7 as good track to hear. Keep up the good work (more darker pls).

My Comment:
They are 2nd wave of BM although their name was not big as Hellhammer, Celtic Frost and etc. Many said their songwriting was superb. I admit it They really doing some research here. They approch in dark sound with clean voice maintaining the BM ideology. Most their song was not simplistic and fixed but have many variation. Starting with instrumental in Lykorian and acoustic guitar in Kargeras Prologue. I pick "Kargeras" is the best track. Others track i pick "Prophet Song", "Equirhodon ", "Dygon" coz the very interesting dark music ^^. Woot..very nice 'dark' galloping rythm in "Trygan". They are brilliant, Salute !!

My Comment
This album had released in february this year. There only two member (one only play violin, one more play others). Opening melancholy violin intro in Der Geiger supporting with ambient sound by keyboard, they was awesome !! (last i heard the good violin is The sin of thy beloved). The "Narrenshyff" was amazing !!!. What i like about this band is although length per song almost 10 min, they not quite bored and full with variation and expanding the melodic. I can feel like "My dying bride + Tvangeste (slow mode) + Sin of thy beloved .
Good Effort. Salute !!

When it release in 2005 i just only heard "An Apparition of Vengence". Its was super great song but I never thought the album is so f**king rule. By two former of Rotting Christ, sure does it had a bit similarity with RC. All guitar riff is really raw and catchy. The drum was outstanding (tq to Themis Tolis) and not same as previous album. What can i say is this album is totally diff then other BM band out there. Track 10 is cover from Onslaught (they should make a good cover -_-). Salute !! hope they can produce such this great album in future.

I would like pick this album is the best album rather than new theatres album (gothic style loool.). Opening grooming intro in Predulium to madness. The 2nd track "Till the last drop of blood" is nearly sound by early COF. Next is my favourite song ever "Uni Saison En Enfer" !!!....the song was in acoustic mix, great melodical, pipe organ sound, great vocal by pretty Sonya Scarlet ^^ . The enjoying continue with "Dances with satan" and all other. I really love all track here..The Best Melodic BM album ever. Salute !!

My Comment
This a must have album for all symphonic lover. Their music is like Algazanth + Dimmu . Technical guitar riff, sharp high pitch ghoul (same like bishop of hexen). The keyboard is not a main key for this band..just supporting guitar and most using choir background to keep the atmosphere alive. I pick Earthbound Suicide , Massacre Pour Une Ballade, Obtained Orphanage, Black Dominion Era as a good  track to hear.
Keep up all good work guys. Cheers.

No cover album found..its a great album btw..... ^^

After finished working on our "Notes of Inhumanitas", We began the third album.Unfortunately, when the most part of music was done, something like an "ideologic" conflict about the principles of project Nauthisuruz became a reason for us to stop our joint creative work. The result of all that is this instrumental album composed of Sequoror's tracks that were prepared for the unreleased third album. However, track are united in conception (the way we always do).
Several months have passed, we were both working on our non-metal projects, but something was not enough. All disagreements have been forgotten and Nauthisuruz was reborn, but these tracks have not been replayed (and will never be).
