At the time of Yule, Nåstrond released the first production: "The Black Winter". Three of the songs were later used on their demo "From A Black Funeral Coffin" in january 1994. This tape was released in 666 copies. And since several years ago, totally sold out. During the Winter season 1994-1995 Nåstrond recorded, under much of problems, their 7"ep "Digerdöden" a sort of celebration of the 645 years that had passed since the bubonic plague ripped the spine of Europa.
The cover featured “Pesta”. A Nordic female manifestation of the Plague. The ignorance of "want to be" stories concerning "Vampirism" made the ground for the CD "Toteslaut". The Triumph of Death was an link between the songs which dealt with numerous things, all from the sadist king, Gilles de Rais, to Necromancy and Vampirism in Magick practises (Wamphyrism). During this phase, the band was also associated with the Black Order of the Dragon.
An Occult lodge submitted to the Sinister Tradition. During the year 1996, Nåstrond composed their second album “Age of Fire”. The themes had at this album changed. The lyrics worked more in the traditional Satanic and Luciferian theme and to the theme of war and liberation of the mind and physical existence. Nåstrond became, through their music on this album, close to soldiers with the mission to invoke the Sinister archetypes, such as Set, Tiamat and Satan. The title track consists of hard drums joined with orchestral sounds creating the scene for a Cosmic War between the forces.
The music took the step to become more industrial, and involved several parts of pre-recorded tapes, synth, sampling and keyboards. This step was taken even further when they recorded their third album “Celebration of the Four”, which was totally ritualistic, and where the four elements are taking personification through a given character. This album was finally released in 2004 by own label. The focus was the skull and the presence of the greater mind.
It is now again kept in silence and waiting. In 2005 the band came with a new release: "Vargtid", a split with the Greek band Nocternity, which shows the initiation to the regeneration of the spirit of Nåstrond. It is also a return to the Nordic cosmology and the theme of the end stages, the "Wolf Age" and the destruction of this present world. In the continuation of “Vargtid”, a second split was planned in 2006 together with the Irish/Swedish band Myrkr. Also a new full-length album was recorded in late 2006, finally released early the year 2008 by Debemur Morti Productions entitled “Muspellz Synir”.
