Arcane Archivist Zine & Inscripted Mist Creations made the following announcement:
Today I am finally ready to announce a project that I have been planning for over a year now. I have formed a small record label / publishing company called Inscripted Mist Creations. For the debut release, we – along side Nuclear War Now! Productions – are proud to produce the first vinyl pressing of Vemod’s (NOR) cult 1998 demo!
Hailing from Tunsberg, Norway, Vemod (not to be confused with current Norse metal band Vemod) rose from the ashes of Norway’s legendary 2nd wave of Black Metal. Nearly 5 years removed from the genre’s murderous peak, brothers – Saargh and Chagrin – formed the band during unprecedented times in the history of Black Metal. Though many people are quick to write off the late 90s as an era plagued by corporatization and trend-hopping, demos like this are perfect examples of the mystical black force that was still percolating in the underground. The recording itself is notable for its drab atmosphere and desolate production – somehow perfectly blending the styles of groups like Emperor and Lycia. Experimental in its compositions and boundary pushing in its influences, Vemod would truly lay their cards on the table with this single release.
A must listen for those drawn to dark and sorrowful music of any genre. Highly recommended for fans of Emperor, Odium, Limbonic Art and Potentiam. Available soon on 12” LP.More info: Vemod; Inscripted Mist Creations; Nuclear War Now! Productions;
