KISTVAEN first began their journey sometime at the end of the year 2008 when, Fenrir and Vlad, members of the underground Romanian metal scene decided to come up with something new and fresh, thus deciding to begin their journey in the dark depressive black metal scene. What mostly followed was finding a steady line-up to work with, plus an intriguing musical concept that would present itself as a whole, expressing something truly original and exciting.
In 2009 the band made its first live appearances, it quickly gained interest from press and listeners alike and managed to win the prize for „best Romanian metal newcommer” at the Metalhead Awards 2009. In 2010, after the release of the first official video Void, it was clear the band had a great potential and the members decided to record and release their first album.
In june the band played at OST Mountain Fest, in Busteni, together with bands like Ava Inferi, Belphegor, Negura Bunget, Eternal Tears Of Sorrow.
The first album, Unbekannte was released in October during a special show alongside Shining, Nightingale, The Vision Bleak and Vulture Industries, followed by a 2 week national tour of the most important cities.
In 2011 the main focus was promoting the new released album and playing live shows alongside great bands like Qualm, Taine, Abigail, Decapitated and Venom. In 2012 there were a few changes in line-up: a new bass player Vali and a new vocalist by the name of Stege, and they brought a totally new dimension of aggressiveness and a much more heavier sound to the band.
2013 – new ideas and concepts are tested, songs are being developed and a new lyrical theme is being explored, while still doing live shows mostly in Romania. Towards the end of the year the band joined Dor De Duh in their national tour.
2014 – in the first part of the year, all the arrangements and recordings for the future second album had been done.
The band managed in April to play as opening act for Watain‘s De Profundis European tour show in Bucharest, in August the band was invited to be part and play at the Rockstadt Extreme Fest, sharing the stage with bands like Katatonia, Obituary, Behemoth.

2015 was a very busy and rewarding year, in March they started the Desolate Ways European tour (2 weeks, 15 concerts in 6 different countries).
In June they were invited to play at the Metahead Meeting, one of Bucharest’s biggest open air festivals, alongside Dark Funeral and Satyricon, just to name a few.
In July, Kistvaen managed to play at Carpathian Alliance in Lviv, Ukraine, a very big open air festival famous for its aura and feel, where they played alongside bands like Enthroned, Septic Flesh and Riul Doamnei.
RAVENTALE was created in 2005 year by Astaroth Merc as one man band. First demo “В Царстве Забытого Леса” reached Blackfire Productions that gave a birth of the very first record “На Хрустальных Качелях” later in 2006. The album is a narrative from an autumnal, darkening forest and describes the feelings of being in a forgotten wilderness.
Second album “Давно Ушедших Дней” been released in Fall of 2008. This album touches the topic of depression, loneliness and despair. Since this album the project started a strong a long-term cooperation with Solitude Productions.
In 2009 the third work was published called “Mortal Aspirations”. The album differs from its predecessors with more symphonic colors and arrangements. The plot line is filled with reflections on perishing aspirations and self-knowledge.
“After”, the 4th album, was released in Winter 2010. The album is an extension of its predecessor, logically leading it to completion.
The fifth full-length “Bringer of Heartsore” appeared in the Fall of 2011. The songs intertwine a lot of shades, moods and directions. This is a kind of kaleidoscope of colors, gradually merging into a gray picture of melancholy. The album is distinguished by the use of Alexander Blok’s poems.
Autumn 2012 is marked with the appearance of the sixth brainchild of Raventale called “Transcendence” in the run-up to the era of the Sixth Sun. The main purpose of the album is the contemplation of transcendental and transcendental forms of existence and its own transformation against the background of conventionalities and the immanent degradation of modern civilization.
The same year Raventale became a full-fledged live band, performing it debut live show at Oskorei festival in December 2012.
On Summer 2013 Satanath Records released the 7th album of the project – a great compilation of re-recorded songs from early records. The compilation is called “Mémoires”.
The next chapter after 2 years break was the eigth work of the project. In October 2015, the album “Dark Substance Of Dharma” was released. This conceptual opus is addressed to Indian and Tibetan mythology and proposes to fully plunge into the cosmic order of the Dharma, to disassemble the components of the principles of its existence and the perception of this World.
In 2017 from the depths of the space (darker than black), under the cronyism of two shadowed moons in eclipse and the Beasts (that dwell between the dimensions) the new order comes and new Chaos. They bring a monumental total nullification. The latest album named as the New World “Planetarium” and was out on Ashen Dominion Productions.
For the spent years the band recorded and published 8 full-lengths and became desired guests at European festivals such like Kilkim Žaibu, Prague Death Mass, Vosieni Ratauniki, Dark Troll, Oskorei and others. Check out the new album “Planetarium” which is full of cosmic atmosphere in an ocean of blackened doom waters.
BARKASTH is a new formation on the landscape of the Ukrainian Black Metal scene. The source of inspiration for the band members is a radically negative attitude towards religion, in any of its manifestations, as the main cause of obscurantism and distorted perception of reality – the main indicator for the level of ignorance of a contemporary man.
In their debut album “Decaying”, that was released in June 2018 by Svarga Music, BARKASTH reveals the dark side of idolatry on human life and demonstrates the result of this pernicious influence. BARKASTH is a Universe which holds no place for “higher” powers.
