7. The Fogcastle

The first release of Moonfog Productions.

Contrary to popular belief, this album was not released in 1993, but in 1994.
The album was recorded in autumn 1993, but released as an album sometime during winter/spring 1994 (advance-tapes may have been available from late 1993). It also includes uncredited session-work from Lemarchand. (Source for all this info: Slayer Mag 10).

First pressings have in the back only the frames with pics of Satyr and Frost and the name of the band and the album, without any other text and without bar code. The booklet doesn't have any lyrics included, nor does the official band website cite the lyrics, leaving the official lyrics to this album to remain a much-debated mystery.

Recording information:

Recorded in the ancient spectre ruins at Skoklefald during dark autumn nights August & September anno 1993.
All music composed August 92 - March 93.
Concept and lyrics November 92 - April 93
