History

This Germany-based black metal band was founded in Hamburg Germany in 2003. Hamburg-based Remedy Records signed the band and issued the Old Black album a year later. It was recorded at EiKey Studio. Die Eisernen Verse translates to ‘Iron Verses’ in English. Following a hiatus the band returned to EiKey Studio to record its third album. Nachtgarm was with Dark Funeral from 2011 to 2012 replacing Emperor Magus Caligula. The band switched to a new label for its fourth album, which was issued in 2013. Guitarist Urzorn joined in 2014. Drummer Nechtan joined in 2015.

Reviews

NEGATOR - OLD BLACK - MAGICK
The title for Negator's album and the disc's design pretty much sum up the band's musical direction and should give adequate clues such that a review is not even necessary. These guys paint the world black with a brush of evil. For the most part this band is a mixture of Immortal, Dissection and Satyricon. The music is unequivocal and frill less black metal. Having said that, a couple of external influences make brief appearances. Katharsis features a slight folk influence, Vernunft 1.0 has a computerized synthesized sound and uncharacteristic rhythm change and In The Unholy Halls Of Eternal Frost deigns to feature a jazzy section! Whilst we are nitpicking it is odd that Renegation, the album's last number, lasts a good eleven minutes which excludes its eligibility for an 'old school' designation. - Anna Tergel
