FUIL NA SEANCHOILLE "Ocean // Cold" MC
Covers of “Ocean” (Dead Can Dance) and “Cold” (The Cure) were recorded by Satyrign of Fuil Na Seanchoille as an exercise in dynamics while writing The Crossing, the band’s second album (released August 2019 on Pro-MC by Tour de Garde / 12” LP by Me Saco En Ojo). Not initially intended for release, the tracks were re-recorded and mastered as a special edition tape to accompany Tour de Garde’s CD reissues of Fuil Na Seanchoille’s earlier works. Limited to 50 copies only and available as a bundle with "Fuil Na Seanchoille" and "Hunger" CD exclusively.
FUIL NA SEANCHOILLE "Fuil Na Seanchoille" CD
An over 40 minute journey through the demo years of Irish raw black metal entity Fuil Na Seanchoille (“Blood of The Old Forest” in Gaelic), this CD collects the long out-of-print “Bitter Dusk of Futures Past”  and “Demo MMVIII” (2008) cassettes, subsequently reissued on vinyl by Me Saco En Ojo in 2012. Remastered for Tour de Garde in 2019 by Jack Control at Enormous Door, these early emanations demonstrate a range of influences from Von, Beherit and Ulver to Darkthrone and pre "Si Monvmentvm Reqvires, Circvmspice." Deathspell Omega. Inspired by the history of Ireland from 12th Century B.C. until 1580 A.D., shamanic rage collides with hulking evil, channelled through a cavernous assault of primitive darkness. By turns darkly ambient and doom-laden, the sound veers from threateningly wild chaos to menacingly measured assault. Timeless black metal in the old-school tradition.
FUIL NA SEANCHOILLE "Hunger" CD
Fuil Na Seanchoille’s debut album, 2011’s "Hunger" sees the chaotic brutality of the two preceding demos coalesce into a cold, barren, urban sound of hopeless violence. Inspired by the concept of London City as the centre of all earthly evil, a snarling dark aggression evokes throats clutched by the hands of the usurper. Wild transcendental guitars and unhinged vocal patterns echo across a primitive tapestry of bass and drums, with the album concurrently more claustrophobic and more spacious than the earlier works. Composed over “18 hellish months spent in London from 2009-10” (Boothaevens Magazine), a relentlessly depressive vein runs through the core of the album. An almost narcotic sense of grim stupor invests each note with bitter malevolence, a wide range of dark shades present. Having transcended the influences of the early years, this is a unique expression of black metal with few peers and little-to-no sonic comparison.
COUNCIL DAINMONION "When Hell Calls..." 10"MLP
From the dark past, Council Daimonion gathered to spread black metal at its most uncompromising way through their debut demo "When Hell Calls..." Three tracks of pure French Black Metal for worshippers of early Osculum Infame, Seigneur Voland, Bekhira, Mütiilation and early Deathspell Omega. Fully remastered for optimal vinyl experience. This one sided 10" MLP come with 300 grams matte offset printed double sided inlay and is strictly limited to 300 hand-numbered copies.
PAGAN HELLFIRE "At the Resting Depths Eternal" Pro-MC
Pagan Hellfire is one of the oldest and best of Canadian black metal! Tour de Garde is proud to present the sixth full length of this cult act, active for over 22 years. "At the Resting Depths Eternal" is an epic journey through the darkest realm of mind's imagery. Following the footsteps of the previous album but still pushing the boundaries, "At the Resting Depths Eternal" will please any longtime Pagan Hellfire supporter as well as any true black metal fans. Surpassing every production Pagan Hellfire has previously released, the sixth full length offering still has the fury and grimness of its predecessors. This time around, the thin shriek of the guitars and the organic pounding of the drums evoke the cold winds, vast coast and salted seas of the Nova Scotian land.
SKINLIV "Uaar" Pro-MC
Melodic, epic and bombastic black metal crafted by possessed young souls. "Uaar" is Skinliv's second offering after their ultra limited debut demo cassette released in 2018 by Hævngær. "Uaar" is featuring triumphant melodies accompanied by bewitched synth lines and hateful vocals. Despite their young age the Danish wanderers of Skinliv reach to capture the aura of early Scandinavian scene by avoiding the traps that many of their contemporaries fall into.
SEIÐR "I Galskabens Mørke" Pro-MC
Out of the deep abyss surrounding Øresund, Seiðr emerge with a new opus of raw, yet atmospheric, black metal somewhere in between Paysage d'hiver and Ildjarn. With a length of nearly 40 minutes, "I Galskabens Mørke" offers bleak, frostlike ambience which is the perfect soundtrack to the harshest winter days.
