Sons Of Balaur

Black Metal - Norway

Sons Of Balaur Band

SONS OF BALAUR have come to life. Straight out of the highly acclaimed ‘Realm of the Damned’ graphic novel, this obviously fictional Norwegian band is actually delivering a remarkable first full-length. Yet while the graphic novel comes across as bloody as brutal, the biography of the demonically possessed maniacs is offered quite tongue-in-cheek as well as representing a respectful nod to the early Nordic black metal scene with its fanatic ideology and criminal record. In stark contrast to this, the musical intentions behind SONS OF BALAUR’s real-life debut album ‘Tenebris Deos’ should be taken very seriously.

Although the band is supposedly of Norwegian origin, the style of sound and the densely woven guitar-work of ‘Tenebris Deos’ clearly points towards an English back-ground with many cross-references to scene classics from BATHORY, CELTIC FROST, and VENOM to the second and even third generations on black metal.

  • Kristoffer : Guitar
  • Lars : Drums

This band is no longer active on Season of Mist.
