Sirius was formed in 1998 and eventually attracted the interest of Samoth (ex-Emperor), 
who signed the band to his Nocturnal Art Productions label. 
Classic symphonic black metal is the order of the day here, in the spirit of Emperor or labelmates Limbonic Art 
(members of both bands guested on Spectral Transition - Dimension Sirius album), 
showing the right amount of aggression as well as diversity in the songwriting.
At one point the band was reported to have moved to Norway and changed membership, 
but apparently the band is now disbanded.They released two full-length albums.
Daniel Cardoso (drums, keyboards, guitars) has teamed up with Norwegian Kristoffer G. Rygg (Ulver
to form Head Control System.

Wind of the Black Mountains was formed in 1992 by Tchort of Masochist.
Due to the fact that he wanted to create sounds that he did not want to do with the other members in Masochist
He recorded an EP ‘Forcefed Into Blasphemy’ in 1992, which would be released on Moribund Records in 1994, 
followed by a demo in 1993. Also shot a video for ‘The Shadow’ which was never released.
WOTBM would become Tchorts full-time project. Not long after, Nybras joined as the full time drummer/song writer. 
The first album ‘Sing Thou Unholy Servants’ was recorded in 1996.
Tchort and Nybras entered Lau Productions once again to record ‘Black Sun Shall Rise’, 
which was released in March of 2002.
Shortly after the release of Black Sun…, Tchort decided he couldn’t go on with music anymore. 
Angzerhornbroals, of the long-time Illinois cult Black Torment, would join the band. 
In February of 2003 a full LP was supposed to be released on Barbarian Wrath Records 
but many problems caused the album to be delayed to this day. Sadly, in March of 2006, Tchort passed away, 
leaving Nybras continuing on with WOTBM.
Track number 3
Black Goat is a black metal cover of Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit with altered lyrics.
