Eternal Fear - Ancient Woods


First music post for DE will be a pure dungeon synth tape from 1995. Polish based project. Tape spine says Warhagan records but a metal archives roster says Moonshine Productions. This seems to be the only project the solo musician Nerthon had, other than an appearance in 2003 to play some keyboards on a Carnal track.

Really classic dungeon synth sounds here. Fans of the dark 90s stuff will love this. Dark, brooding, and hypnotic. Definitely black metal intro/interlude/outro kind of material. Seven tracks on side A titled 'Ancient Hymns', maybe following after Nattens Madrigal. Side B is only two tracks, titled 'Atmosphere of Sorrow'. Kind of a strange melancholic end to the tape with 'The Celtic History'.

  1. This was another exciting discovery. I'm not really sure but I think I might've seen the name appear on some tape trading lists back in the day.

    As you said, classic ds and definitely of the introutro-school. First thing that came to my mind on initial listen was the '92 Dracula soundtrack by fellow Pole Wojciech Kilar. The second track mainly, it's more varied than that though.

    Would not be inspired by Nattens Madrigal, seeing how this predates that album. Thank you for sharing!
