Amduscias In 1993-94, as a young Underground Metal supporter, I stumbled upon this on a compilation tape... Black Metal was on the rise, and in those magic times, some bands had something special to offer. Sus Scrofa was one of them with their pyrenean folk approach. Check this demo and enjoy the necro sound testimony of times when the Black Metal Underground meant serious musickal magick. Favorite track: Pagan sacrum facere.

Le groupe réalise ses premiers enregistrements en 1991 (démos non diffusées). Puis, en 1993, 'Dins Ech Cel d'Asteartia', vendue à plus de 600 exemplaires. Le groupe produit un métal teinté de black métal première vague, de métal traditionnel et de sonorités folkloriques autour de thèmes animistes, païens creusant ainsi le sillon d'un style à peine naissant à cette période. L'écho important dans l'underground 'Dins Ech Cel d'Asteartia' en fait un réalisation reconnue encore aujourd'hui.
