Fenrir

Fenrir was created in 2006 when Sylvère (lead guitar) and Quentin (drums) met. Soon Emily (guitar) and Lucas (viola) joined the band, and in october 2006, with the help of Sophie (voice) and Pauline (bass guitar), the band was completed and ready to play gigs!

The first gig was in december 2006, and in the same time Fenrir recorded its first demo. Then the band played in half a dozen gigs in order to get some experience.

In summer 2007, there were changes in the air. Emily and Sophie left, for different reasons. Elsa (voice & violin) and Fabien (guitar) came, and worked hard to be ready as soon as they could. In october 2007, Fenrir's first EP, Whispers Of The Old World is recorded in PatchWork Studio, Mondragon (France).

Pagan Reign

The year was 1995. Orey, being influenced by metal and inspired by Russian Paganism, began composing his own original lyrics and musical arrangements. And so, Pagan Reign was born. Orey created all the riffs and melodies by himself and later included them in the first album. For a long time he searched not only for talented musicians, but for musicians that held the same views as himself. In 1998, after a long search, along came Sloven, Pagan Reigns new drummer. In 1999, guitarist, Vetrodar, had joined the band. Together, the three devoted themselves to the composing of new songs and arrangement of new material. Their energy and potential quickly captured the attention of bassist Koldum, who soon joined the band. Then, despite unfavorable circumstances, the band began work on their first demo. The demo, titled "The Dawn", was recorded during a repetition session and consisted of five tracks. After the recording was completed, Pagan Reign performed their first concert. Not only was their music stylistically unique, but their appearance also made people take notice. The musicians wore traditional Slavic clothes which made them stand out amongst other bands. Pagan Reign had taken part in all of the shows that were held in the clubs of Tver. By the end of 1999, they had finished recording their first full-length demo album, which was called "Ancient Warriors." Because it was recorded at their home studio, the production left much to be desired, thus the demo wasn't distributed amongst magazines and record labels.

Bands
Dauden I Mørke

Dauden i Mørke was founded in 2008 as the solo project of Daniel Kennedy (Deka1184) when the first song, "Frozen Planet", was written and recorded. Over the next two years, a handful of other songs were made, the most important of which being "A Martyr's Rede" which remains one of DiM's most popular songs to date. However, progress was slow and tedious as the intricacy of Deka1184's compositions quickly exceeded his guitar playing ability.

After many futile searches for a guitarist, the project seemed dead in the water. However, a young prodigy, Adam Shepard (Christgrinder) inquired about the project in 2010. He soon became the driving force behind DiM's guitar sound, enabling Deka1184 to write far more technical compositions for Christgrinder to record with relative ease. The vocal capacity of the band received a similar upgrade with the infusion of the illusive vocalist, artist, and occult practitioner Corinna Roberge (Mercurious). With such incredible talent added to the mix, the trio went on to create "Dread", the first track to showcase Christgrinder's quick and vicious guitar work as well as Mercurious's vast, overpowering vocal assault. With one composer, one guitarist, and one vocalist, the core lineup of Dauden i Mørke had been established.
