WEREWOLF RECORDS is proud to reissue a lost classic of Finnish black metal: KYPRIAN'S CIRCLE's Noitatulen vartija. It shall be released on CD format and, for the first time ever, 12" vinyl.
Originally released in 1999, Noitatulen vartija was the debut EP of KYPRIAN'S CIRCLE, and also the band's final recording. Granted, mainman Kyprian had released three demos during 1996 and '97 and then a split tape in '98, but the five-song/19-minute Noitatulen vartija was the longest recording he released under the KYPRIAN'S CIRCLE banner. As such, it was the fullest exploration of his aesthetic, and a perfect distillation of the times: raw-yet-ethereal black metal brimming with both a moonlit mysticism and a woodland wonder. Simple pleasures, to be sure, but ones that extolled the eternal glory of ancient black metal. Feel the breath of night again, or perhaps for the first time, with KYPRIAN'S CIRCLE's Noitatulen vartija!
WEREWOLF RECORDS is a Luciferian metal temple founded in 1998. The wolfish cry from the Carelian battlegrounds, WEREWOLF RECORDS releases black metal and other dark arts motivated exclusively by theistic Satanist views of the founder Werwolf. In this age when black metal's worth is questionable, idealism and rigor are the exception when they should be the highest law. We uphold the law of the Wolf - the destruction of the weak and the false so that the original vitality of the dark magic art can continue to grow and create the foundations for an empire. Black metal is Will and Power. We deal with material that inspires us on our journey towards our own kingdom - a kingdom that is not yours, but bears a resemblance to the one there could be for you. Now in conspiracy with HELLS HEADBANGERS, the temple of WEREWOLF RECORDS shall wage its war farther and wider than ever, with no spiritual surrender.
