Discogs of Darkness...

We have added an outlet @ Discogs for selling surplus and leftover copies coming from private collections as well as label dead stock. Many items are out of print since a long time and remain available as single copies only, hence record collectors are advised to have a look and act fast:

Attention: Distribution of digital/promotional records

Since Promonetics went offline without prior notice and our distribution of digital promo records to web- as well as print zines has thus come to an end, we will just use our Bandcamp page for uploading our releases in future. You can listen to, and download, our releases from:

Bandcamp: Pretenders to the Throne (Compilation)

"Pretenders to the Throne" was a compilation supposed to be released by French Embassy Productions/Tragic Empire Records in the late 1990ies, but when the label ceased operation it handed this project over to Darker Than Black Records from Germany. All songs were recorded and even the cover artwork was already painted (by David « Darkarts » Thiérrée), but in October 1999 German state security police raided Darker Than Black Records and confiscated the material for this compilation, among other things. Hence this compilation never materialized.

Only a few songs recorded for this compilation have eventually resurfaced, and they are now made available for free digital streaming and download for the first time ever.

Hail the true Black Metal cult in the olden days long gone!

Darker Than Black: SulAmerica

Darker Than Black Records (DTB) nasceu em 1994, com a finalidade de lançar o 7"EP "Thuringian Pagan Madness" do Absurd. Devido à falta de fundos, esta versão nunca se materializou e o selo permaneceu dormente até 1996, quando se tornou o subselo oficial da lendária MALICIOUS Records para lançar edições em vinil limitadas. Após Silexater "Bleeding Depth" - 7 "EP ser lançado, MALICIOUS Records teve graves problemas e foi extinta em 1997.

No final de 1997 a D.T.B. ganhou força e finalmente, lançou o debut album do Thor´s Hammer "Fidelity Shall Triumph". Logo em seguida veio o MCD "Eternal Damnation" do Abyssic Hate, limitado a 500 cópias. Também foi organizado em 26 de Setembro de 1998 o lendário concerto "Black Metal-Storm over Germany" com: Nagelfar, Riger, Dunkelgrafen, Barad Dur, Vilkates, Lugburz e, como convidado especial, os tiranos do Black Metal alemão, Absurd.

Com Mjölnir "Hinweg über die Tore der Zeit", lançado no final de 1998, DTB conseguiu atordoar a cena Black Metal trazendo um álbum inovador, jamais visto naquela época!

Os próximos lançamentos foram em 1999. Barad Dûr "Dunkelheit", Winterblut "Der 6. Danach " e o classico "Warspirit" do Kristallnacht. Outros grandes nomes fizeram parte da D.T.B. ainda nos anos 90, como Thunderbolt, Kataxu, Juvenes, Legion of Doom, Pantheon, Bekhira, entre outros...

Em outubro de 1999, a D.T.B. volta as sombras mais uma vez. Os lançamentos previstos e originalmente programados para D.T.B. acabaram por ser lançados pela Ancestral Research Records, em 2001/2002.

Alguns anos depois a D.T.B. ressuscita em toda a sua glória, com dezenas de novos lançamentos de bandas mundialmente consagradas do underground.

Em 2013, a Hammer Of Damnation firma uma parceria com a Darker Than Black e abre uma filial na América do Sul. O primeiro resultado desta parceria é o relançamento de 2 albuns do Evil em cd, "Twilight and Mourning" e "Where the Sun was Never Born", ambos remasterizados em 2013. Todos os lançamentos da Darker Than Black são distribuídos unica e oficialmente na América do Sul pela DARKER THAN BLACK - SULAMERICA.

Música de alta qualidade, da elite, pela elite e para a elite ...!

Any bands/projects into this particular fusion of inhuman Electronics and insane Black Metal are encouraged to get in touch.

Disclaimer: Bands, please read before you get in touch!

Do not send any emails asking for a record deal to us anymore! D.T.B. Records does not sign any new bands for the time being, unless we are asking any band ourselves. Stop to spam our mailbox with requests for a record deal, because we will not pay attention to it anyway. There are many labels around who might be inclined to sign a new band, so go asking them. Thank you.
