They have also released a split with Horna (12" LP limited to 500 and CD 1000 pieces) and a 3-vinyl set "From the Devil's Chalice" (limited to 666 copies). The band adopts to a highly Satanic theme in their music and makes it more obvious than many other black metal bands.

Remaining largely a solo project, however supported by various session musicians for live performances and some recording.
