In general it’s about a vision of epics battles, on which the transfixions where the symbolic  element of great power and intimidation. The scene is so disturbing that it’s only the outcome of minds possessed by superior been or demonic. It’s important to say that In contradiction with the art of the disc, doesn't show the battle directly, it only shows the domination, idolatry, the subservience of weak minds of the bastard humans and The result of this fight.

also some live rituals and share the stage with bands that we like. In the long term it could be
that I spread the power of the Blackened Metal in faraway lands.

Sarth Norgaath:  I always follow the line that left Euronymous, Death and other bands from South America like Parabellum who initiate the Black Metal in the extreme side, as it should be. Also some bands

We always have something different, something that identifies to LR, as soon as you are there you know that we are playing.  Several times we bring banner, standard, which I care of doing it myself. You know the rest, fire, spikes, chains, good guitars,  that’s how we create the atmosphere that we need for give the strength, the pressure that identifies LR.  Actually we have much more stuff in mind, the ones that haven’t been set yet because of lack of sponsors,  but I always worry in give the meaning that it deserves to the Blackened metal.
