Triumphator is a Swedish black metal band that was formed at the end of 1995 
consisting of Tena, songwriter/bass player, and members of the local Linköping band Blasphemous.
Their debut promo-demo "The Triumph of Satan" was recorded in May of 1996 and released a month later. 
The tape sold quite well, despite the lack of promotion.  The Blasphemous members were kicked out in early 1997, 
and replaced by Arioch (Funeral Mist, Marduk) on vocals/guitar and Fredrik Andersson (Allegiance, ex-Marduk) on drums.
This was the line-up that recorded the 7'' ep "The Ultimate Sacrifice" at Necromorbus Studio 
and their first and only full-length "Wings of Antichrist".

Ildjarn - Nidhogg ‎– Norse (7'' EP 1993)

Country: Norway

2. Svarte Hjerter 02:25
3. Nattens Ledestjerne 02:53
4. Natt Og Tåke 03:19

Ildjarn was a black metal project from Norway that formed in 1991. 
The band recorded music until 1997 but did not officially end until 2005. 
The man behind Ildjarn was Vidar "Ildjarn" Våer (former member of Thou Shalt Suffer and Sort Vokter), 
although some releases were collaborations with a musician known as Nidhogg.
Those releases are known as Ildjarn - Nidhogg
Ildjarn's music was a very simple and "lo-fi" brand of  raw black metal,
composed of basic drum patterns and a couple of riffs. 
Their style has been compared to hardcore punk in its simplistic ferocity and short song lengths.
Some Ildjarn albums are devoted to ambient suites for electronic keyboards.
The related band Sort Vokter that consisted of Ildjarn, Nidhogg and two other members 
known as Tvigygre and Heiinghund, released only one album in 1996 called "Folkloric Necro Metal".
