Biography

Mondeville, France (1994 – present)

Blut aus Nord is a black metal band from Mondeville, France.

The band started in 1994 as a solo project, with Vindsval playing all instruments under the name Vlad. He released two demos under this title before changing the projects name to Blut Aus Nord before the release of Ultima Thulée in 1995. The next three albums were recorded with the aid of session musicians: It is only recently that the group has had any permanent members apart from Vindsval (who also played in The Eye and Children Of Mäani).

The project’s most critically acclaimed release is The Work Which Transforms God, a concept album which - in spite of being mostly instrumental with none of the lyrics made public - is meant to challenge the listener’s prejudices and preconceptions about reality, life and various metaphysical subjects. The Work Which Transforms God has been almost unanimously praised in reviews and was named by Terrorizer Magazine as its number one album of 2003.

Major releases from Blut aus Nord include

- Ultima Thulée 1995 (melodic black metal)
- Memoria Vetusta I: Fathers of the Icy Age 1996 (melodic black metal)
- The Mystical Beast of Rebellion 2001 (black metal)
- The Work Which Transforms God 2003 (Industrial/ambient/black metal)
- Thematic Emanation of Archetypal Multiplicity (industrial metal)
- Metamorphosis of Realistic Theories 2006 (industrial, black metal, avant-garde)
- Odinist - The Destruction of Reason By Illumination 2007 (black metal)
- Memoria Vetusta II: Dialogue With The Stars 2009 (avant-garde, melodic black metal)

    After listening to "the work which trasform god" I think I'm starting to get into this band, however their discography is kind of big, which other albums do you think are worth checking out?

    Apparently it was a journalist with press access to their promos who leaked it. Debemur Morti talked about it on their facebook page, the same person leaked the new Sons of Crom and Ævangelist albums, and I guess either the same person or someone else labeled the Sons of Crom as the Saturnian Poetry.

    Yeah. It would give us more time for listening awesome split "Triunity" with Phobos and others 777 realeases :E It's more than a month to a premiere of the MV III.

    Yeah, it was Debemur Morti's trolling. Well played, well played.

    And they probably laaaughed and laaaughed.

    Curiously though, the only person that could have done it is someone who has access to Debemur Morti's promos. Sons of Crom's album isn't out yet and this is the first time it's been leaked onto the internet. It was either someone on their promo list having a joke or the label themselves that did it.

    Maybe someone thought it's gonna be cool and clever to gain attention by doing this. Poor values, I despise it.

    Yeah, it's Sons of Crom's new album that isn't out yet, not Blut aus Nord's. Curious.

    Of course it is. That material has nothing in common with Vindsval's songwriting style, which is VERY eminent. If you want a proof, listen to the leak material and find this excerpt, as if bouncy folk metal track lasting 4:11 and called "Prelude" wasn't enough. To not to mention all the rest.

    The Blut aus Nord leak isn't MVIII, it's Sons of Crom - Riddle of Steel.

    The leaked new album is a fake? :_

    I bet your ass it's a fake. It doesn't sound like anything related to Blut aus Nord. I can't even find the excerpt from Soundcloud. These tracks sound like echoed, generic power / folk metal.
