History

This Saarbrücken-based band came together in 1996 and issued several demos including Machosias and Menschenverachtung. The band was also heard on multiple compilations. The Old Pagan EP from 1999 featured a cover version of Pagan Winter, which was by now routine for the act. Deathstrike Records distributed the Thrash Black Metal Holokaust demo. 2003 brought another EP, Tecknotschtiklan. The 2006 demo was called The Sign Of The Battle Dragon. The band had initially announced it as Sign Of The Dragon Skull. It all went quiet until 2012 and a demo called My Black Witch. This preceded the full-length tape, Battlecruiser Old Pagan. The next EP was called This Is Saarland Black Metal and issued by Runenstein again. The group climbed the stage at Apocalyptical Coalescene III in Mannheim. A full-length was called MaledictusS (not a typo) in 2014. Demo Collection 1997 - 2015 was a self-explanatory compilation. The black metal band had an album called Ogdrun Jarhar through Symbol Of Domination to end 2015.

Old Pagan is a project by Machosias, the former drummer of Pagan Winter. He also used to sing in Old Pagan’s first decade. S. Vollmer became the permanent singer in 2005. He is in a dozen projects bands at any given times and hires musicians to come and go for Old Pagan as well. The man was influenced by the Norwegian black metal sound.
