Slagmaur's Thill Smitts Terror continues where they left off with 2009's critically acclaimedVon Rov Shelter, delving more and more deeply into the disturbing world that Slagmaur conjures up by combining modern and classical instruments with children’s nursery rhymes and fairy tales. It is a world where classically constructed melodies blend seamlessly with aggressive black metal to create a nightmare scenario straight from the pit of Hell. Art, as well as music, is an integral part of the whole that is Slagmaur - from the sinister masks and costumes the band wears onstage, to the disturbing images used in the artwork for the albums.
Mysterious and secretive, Slagmaur was formed in the remote reaches of northwestern Norway in 2006. The band have never revealed their true identities and always appear heavily disguised, often as characters from their own songs, nor have they ever revealed how they create the sinister music that invades the listener's mind with layer upon layer of sound that reveals a different facet each time you hear it, depending on your current state of mind Thill Smitts Terror is thus a culmination of all that's transpired in the particular, peculiar Slagmaur world, and a continuation of where it goes next.
