Non Serviam Records
Distribution: Season of Mist
Non Serviam Records is proud to present the second release of UK's Black/Death Metal masters STAHLSARG! The 4-piece is delivering a refined blend and musical technicality in performance and composition without sacrificing melodic and dynamic proficiency. “Mechanisms of Misanthropy” was recorded and produced by Danny B Takoma at HVR Studios, Suffolk (Criminal,Lock-Up, etc.) and features a magnificent cover art by Simon Bossert of Metal Artworks (Keep of Kalessin, Unlight, Imperium Dekadenz, etc.).
The band comments: "Our music is used to highlight stories of a time of oppression, resistance, survival and death. From the fast to the melancholic and from the bombastic to magisterial we create atmospheres to maximize the hard hitting lyrical content."

Conceived in 2013, Stahlsarg immediately took to the road to travel through the UK and Europe sharing their black metal sound. Air time includes Bloodstock Radio, Total Rock Radio, ICR, BRFM and Top Rock Radio amongst others. They’ve also featured in UK and European music magazines. 2014 saw such milestones as supporting pioneers of Norwegian black metal, Mayhem, on their sole UK date in London, storming Belgium with Italian black metallers Handful of Hate and joining black metal band Excruciate 666 in France. Stahlsarg were also honoured to grace the Sophie Lancaster stage at Bloodstock 2014, warming up the crowd for Satan. No strangers to the festival scene, Stahlsarg also enjoyed Beermageddon Festival in Birmingham and Belgium’s No Compromise Metal Festival alongside headliner Crystal Viper.
Early 2015 Stahlsarg proudly created Stahlsarg Beer – handcrafted in association with The Dove Brewery, Ipswich and this was followed by a headline show in Camden, London. The band played a roaring set in Germany at Wonnemond Festival in May, sharing the stage with the German black metal legends Endstille. Stahlsarg attracted the attention of Randall amplification and are now proud to be a part of their artist roster.
Stahlsarg’s debut album, “Comrades In Death”, was internationally released via the Danish label Mighty Music. Recorded with Danny B. Takoma (Criminal, Lockup) of HVR studios, Powerplay Magazine was calling it “a multi-dimensional piece of work”. The band was honoured to be invited on a short tour through the UK, once again supporting Endstille, coinciding with the album’s release on Halloween. The band finished 2015 with another headline show, this time in Birmingham. 2016 was another busy year for the band, having played gigs in Norway, Belgium, Holland, Germany and UK and writing the second album.
In February 2017 Stahlsarg returned to HVR studios in Suffolk with Danny B Takoma on production duties and recorded the follow up to their debut album “Comrades in Death”. The album is entitled “Mechanisms of Misanthropy” and will be released in Autumn 2017, by the band's new label Non Serviam Records. Stahlsarg have numerous dates throughout the year booked to support its release. The album features a guest vocal from Kim Dylla (A winter lost, Gwar, Kung Fu Dykes) and an arrangement from Brian Moss from Vicious Pink.
