    The debut, and original pressing, of Tearstained's 1st CD released in 1999 on Mordgrimm Records. This is my solo-project. This debuted the style that would evolve on the next 2 albums which, together, comprised of the "Suicide Trilogy". It was called "Depressive Black Cult". After the album there is a track 9 that is 2 hidden cover-songs. They are not listed in the booklet, but they are listed below. Every Tearstained CD has 2 hidden cover-songs not listed in the booklets, one of which is always a Bathory-cover. This album is like what would happen if Bathory and Mercyful Fate collided, with some explorations into depressive doom and atmospheric black metal. The Metallica-cover was done as I envisioned Quorthon would have performed it had he done a cover of it, so I always call it a Bathorized Metallica-cover. Cover-art by J. Petagno, who is also responsible for the Motorhead logo, Alice Cooper "Billion Dollar Babies" LP-layout and many many other classic album covers. Photos of Mikael by Evil Eye (R.I.P.) Logo by Kris Verwimp. In fact it's even a centerfold featured in the book "Logos From Hell".

    This album would be re-issued in 2005 on Barbarian Wrath with 2 then-new songs that only appear on that re-issue and a new layout and cover-art.

    I did this in tribute as Bathory did on the back of their "The Return..." album.

    Man, I remember this album! Bat Horde was one of my favorite songs on there... Don't remember where I got it I think Jim Raggi from Lamentations Of The Flame Princess gave it to me.
