Out Monday! BELLICISTE – Sceadugenga (New Zealand Black Metal, Todestrieb Records)


Vicious, misanthropic Black Metal!! Exaltation of the Death Cult.

The début BELLICISTE album is a perfected assault of poisonous Black Metal with the lawless energy of a first work, rawness and blunt strike of punk, nostalgic heavy metal riffs and rotten solos!

Visions of total winter… black sun, barren earth. Carcass strewn wastelands. Folkloric spirits of the natives invoked to cloak aggressors in merciless battle. Solitary depravity. Cleave the bone to build the throne!

Bestial brutality, savagery, nihilism and native mythology. Devoted to morbid death and sinister spirits. Belligerent Black Metal!!

BELLICISTE (from the French: Warmonger) released the début self-titled demo in 2012 on Dutch underground label Wolfsvuur. Sceadugenga is the first album, released 15 December 2014 on Todestrieb Records.

BELLICISTE is Krigeist.

We strive to spread this poison far within the underground, so past and new trade partners should get in contact!


…speaking personally, there was a moment at the turn of the millennium when a few select groups cut through everything else happening at the time and stripped back this music to its core. I have this same feeling with BELLICISTE… true black metal, original and powerful — it’s a venom that attacks and corrodes and bleeds through every vein…


Belliciste – Sceadugenga (Album Coming Later in 2014 on Todestrieb Records)

Todestrieb Records is proud to announce a forthcoming album release by BELLICISTE – sole creation of Krigeist: founder, guitarist and vocalist of BARSHASKETH,

More details will follow but right now, you can sample The Forlorn Chant of the Mord Vargr on the Distro front page.

Belliciste’s self-titled debut demo was released by our comrades at Wolfvuur a couple of years ago and made an instant impression here.
On the demo, the atmospheres and technical ability behind Barshasketh were apparent, as were echoes of Krigeist’s former band Blood of the Moon.
However Belliciste separated itself from Barshasketh with a rawer approach and sound at times reminiscent of the Finnish underground (Horna and Goatmoon come to mind).

The new full-length album, Sceadugenga, continues and builds on the demo to create an incredible work of pure black metal – meant in the most honest sense. Raw occult metal with integrity, originality and power. A metal heart with punk energy soaked in ancient conjurations; Belliciste strike from the core of black metal with a work of immense force.

Artwork will be posted soon.
