“Kroda”: In an Interview with the German Metal-Online-Magazine “Ruhrmetal.com”, „Eisenslav“, the front man of the Ukrainian band „Kroda“ (which was formed in 2003) , describes their music: „(…) It is the echoes of Ancient Battles for Our Native Land and for Our Blood. It is the gnash of swords, clash of battle axes and hissing of arrows, crushing and sweeping away all the hostile being from Our Land. It is the resounds of terrible battle outcry of Aryan Warriors Allfadr and the raging roar of Aryan Archetype Wolfish Nature.(…)“. Nevertheless he states that „Kroda“ is not a “National Socialist Black Metal”(NSBM)-band: „Speaking about Kroda style – this is not NSBM. People correctly define our vein as Folk Pagan Metal. Except of that, we don’t sing about politics but use completely another topics: traditionalism, culture, nature… I shall not deny the fact that anyway we have certain political views, but this is not about musical aspect of Kroda. I can add here only that both of us feel disgust when we take look upon nowadays political situation that seems like some show.“

In an other interview, „Eisenslav“ is asked if he believes in the Anti-semitic idea of „Z.O.G. alliance“, „jewish conspiracy and so on and he answers: „Seems that only those who watch TV too much are able not to see it! It’s obvious even for a blind man!“. In the end of the interview, he greets with the following words: „Aryan Regards! WOTAN über Alles!“ ( http://www.mortemzine.net/article.php?id=256)
“Temnozor”: This Russian band was formed in 1996. It was a racist and Anti-Semitic band from the beginning of its existence. In an interview in 1998 the band speaks about its world view: “(…) I believe that perishment of christianity is possible at the moment, however pagan revival will stay only a dream until modern civilization based on materialism and judaism is annihilated (…)”. Furthermore the band calls for (violent) action against those who are the scape goat for the problems of the society: “(…) think about the future of our Land, our Race and our nation. If most of you will act the same way, trying to break the chains of judeo-christian slavery and consequences of it’s noxious impact (i.e. disastrous ecological, demographic and geopolitic state of the whole White Race) speaking a lot but doing nothing, then soon there will be nothing and nobody to save. We have to act now. It’s not an appeal to start demagogic debate of the detriment of judeo-christian culture (…) It’s the appeal to real, precisely planned actions. I guess, those who need it, already understood what I’m talking about… and others simply are of no interest to me. Praise Russia! Hail the White Race! Support the forthcoming War!“ http://www.rusmetal.ru/vae_solis/Temnozor.htm
Furthermore the bands „Utgard“ and „Ancestors blood“ shall play.
“Bloodcult Tour 2009”

In 2007 a split recording of the bands “Satanic Warmaster” and “Aryan Blood” was released. The song “The Chant of the Barbarian Wolves” of “Satanic Warmaster” on the release is about the killing of Jews: “Strike hard, without forgiveness When armour and flesh are torn apart Our dawn will break to show no light For the jews (sic!) ravaged with no remorse”. The Neo Nazi solo project “Holocaustus” (alias “Flammentod”) contributed to the recording with the song “Einklang”. On one record which was released in 2005, one can find a song which is named “My Dreams of Hitler”. In 2006 and 2007 “Satanic Warmaster” released records in common with the Neo Nazi bands “Stutthof” and “Gas Chamber”. “Gas Chamber” is also a project of “Nazgul”.
