|Sorcier Des Glaces started in 1997 with the interest of doing a kind of "tribute" to early Black Metal. This is a whole concept obsessed by misanthropy, infused with a total black hate for humanity. SDG has released its first album Snowland at the beginning of 1998: that album has never got a distribution deal or a professional release, it was only available as a CDR copy distributed by the band itself. In 1999, Sorcier Des Glaces entered the studio to record a second offering Moonrise In Total Darkness. That album wasn't released until december 2006, on Mankind's Demise Records. Many reasons has kept this album in the dark for 7 years, since its recording.
In 2010, a lot of new material was composed. Sorcier Des Glaces announced a trilogy of new albums to be recorded in 2010-2012. The band entered their own Hell Studios in Quebec in August 2010 to record their third album The Puressence Of Primitive Forests. The album was released on July 25th 2011 via Mankind's Demise Records. The second album of the trilogy will be called Ritual Of The End and finally the third and final chapter North. These two albums will be released later in 2013.
Year MMXII means a lot for Sorcier Des Glaces so far. A split album with "Metal Noir Québécois" band Monarque was released on the German label Obscure Abhorrence Productions in March, featuring 4 exclusive songs by SDG. In April, a mini-album called Monuments Anciens including demos & unreleased songs saw the gloomy light of the moon on the label Les Productions Hérétiques.
And finally on May 29th 2012, Sorcier Des Glaces released the album Snowland MMXII. This is the complete remake album of the first Sorcier Des Glaces album Snowland originally released in 1998. The album was released on special limited "metal box" edition by Mankind's Demise Records & Les Productions Hérétiques. As the original Snowland album had great atmosphere but was poorly executed and recorded at the time, the band decided to give a facelift with a their raw but extremely cold sound and without any keyboards. The result is no doubt 100% colder and more majestic than the original.
