Quote from label: "Inferna Profundus is proud to present the long out of print “Sono Lo Scherno”, the second full length from long running US black metal band Krieg.
Recorded between 1998 and 1999 “Sono Lo Scherno” is a harsh and unsettling journey through the ravages of the scourge of the medieval world: the black plague. Fans of Krieg’s newer works may not recognize the early sound of the band which was built upon sonic aggression, ambient pieces, samples and layer upon layer of caustic vocals. This is a document of the American black metal scene in its growing pains, a brash scene unconcerned with the more nuanced takes their European counterparts had constructed and long before bands were more concerned with their haircuts and advertising deals than the core tenets of black metal.
This reissue features new texts on the conception of the record as well as new packaging. Nothing from the original masters has been touched to preserve the atmosphere and intent present when this record was painfully birthed.
“Much like an aural diagram of one being slowly unraveled by an insanity and hatred far older than man’s existence” –Wrest (Leviathan, Lurker of Chalice)"
A collective work of many artists and painters among the elite (Metastazis, Seldon Hunt, Manuel Tinnemans...) paying their tribute to the mighty Grieghallen studio. The place where everything or so began, where most of the scandinavian black metal classics were recorded. Mayhem, Burzum, Dissection... all here praised through 32 pages of graphic splendor. A3 size book on heavyweight paper, superb black and grey print. A limited, "one print then it's forever gone" piece of art, mandatory for all the followers of the original black metal cult.
The northern fires still burn...
