Pagan metal from the Basque Country. Released one split with Ilbeltz and Aiumeen Basoa. The three songs recorded for this split CD belong to the Basque mythology and world view, and each of them is closely related to this fact. "Sua" (fire) means creation, the beginning, and at the same time it is the first song. The following, "Akelarreko batzarra" (the gathering of the akelarre), deals with the return of the legitimate owners of the earth, the real gods, and the mention of the akelarre represents the germination of the seed, for the akelarres are a fecundity rituals of the goddess Mari,, the most important one in the Basque mythology. The third song, called "Iluno" (Darkness), an ancient word found in a prehistoric Basque tomb and written in ancient Basque, deals with the death of this person and his conversation with the goddess Mari, who is embodied by the moon. Thus the cycle finishes with the birth, the fertility, and the death, the natural cycle of life.
Adhur is a Basque word meaning magic strength, and it is related to the moon and personified by the goddess Mari. Eate, who founded the band, chose the name because it defines his necessity to express the real meaning of his being and his relationship to the ancient Basque world through music. The Symbol from the logo is a Ancient Basque prehistoric symbol which stands for the Moving Sun.
