Band Bio: The name Al-Namrood (the non-beleiver) is derived from an ancient historical autocratic character who once reigned the world with an overpowerful evil, slayed and ruled. He is viewed as a tyrant that began a king but should have never gained the cult following to do become as powerful as he did.
After a successful demo release of Atba'a Al-Namrood in 2008, they returned in 2009 to deliver a one-of-a-kind full length Astfhl Al Tha'r. After a change in line-up Estorat Taghoot was released in 2010 with no delays.
In early 2012 Kitab Al Awthan was released Jan 20.
Followed by a 5 year anniversary with remastered tracks from previous albums; ep limited to 250 in box with embelished Al-Namrood logo with accompanying artwork. Jaish Al-Namrood was released in 2013.
2014 took Al-Namrood to new heights with a first ever vinyl release of their full length Heen Yadhar Al Ghasq which was also released on CD.

Egyptian Ambient/Black Metal
Future and past releases available for download at:
Band Bio: The Horn is a solo project by obscure Australian misanthrope, a Demon Sheen who is dedicated to setting every one of the spells of the ancient Egyptian spells of living and dying to music. The atmospheres he creates for these ancient spells range from bleakness drenched dark ambient rituals to Egyptian influenced black metal scorn to what he dubs "occult spacemetal". As a true Chaos - Magician he refuses to be limted by superficial notions of genre and revels in the alchemy of creating music that exists between the currently established norms - and as such has garnered reviews of such scorn and hatred he has become, in his own words, "the most hated band in the world". But ofcourse to a chaos magician the negative energy only makes him more powerful.
As the project is dedicated to the ancient spells of Old Egypt, there are no new lyrics written by the Horn; rather every track uses scribes written over 2000 years ago taken from the English translation by R.O. Faulkner (seen by many as the most accurate at translating the ancient books). Thus his spells are given numbers rather than names and can often have descriptions longer than themselves. Since 1997 the Horn has produced 9 volumes of spells - but with 189 spells in the Ancient Egyptian Book of living and dying there is little chance of this project running out of material any time soon.
After a delay in pressing this release was moved into 2012.
02012012 saw the release of Volume 10 with 250 CD's pressed.
Ascend into the milky way - behold the restoration of the eye!
