Mahlo Metsys... The reincarnation of the former Monarcen. Harder, darker, more violent, more misterious, more atmospheric. We've formed this band in a greater way now.
Venom - Cacophony (vocals)
Mayhem - Battle ax (Lead Guitar)
Nemesis - Warhammer (Rhythm Guitar)
Rommulux - Studded Mace (Bass)
Well it's been over a year since Monarcen was active. The Dunwich horror failed, Nemesis lost contact with Mayhem and H'Ear-Ihn, and with ony two members that hadn't worked together often, it had to fold. Venom and Nemesis talked for the first time in a few months and Monarcen has sparked back. Since Everything that's been done since Lords of Martyrdom has all been work from Nemesis, we have no trouble starting back up.
Nemesis - Guitar, Music, Lyrics
Venom - Guitar, Vocals, temporary bass
It's been a loooooong time since we'd gotten an organized practice together. There's been two in the past 2 weeks, one with Venom and Nemesis, which a riff of greatness was created, and then one with Nemesis and Mayhem in which the riff was expanded to a full song, the next day Nemesis and Mayhem wrote lyrics for the song. This may be the best thing we've come up with yet. the Hyatis is over.
Battle Ax: Mayhem
well the name funeral fog was chosen but won't work since there's already a few known as the same name on myspace, the new name is now up for vote: Gravemyst and a few others. Gravemyst is the most likely to be selected but others can still be thought up.
Battle ax: Mayhem
Banner of Blood: Xetrov
bass: Bathory/ emperor
Nemesis has just added a Keyboardist to the mix now that he and Mayhem have written the "Embark the tainted paradise" instrumental, which came out quite good for an instrumental written in 2 minutes (but it's still missing components). Bathory also still holds some session bass services when Emperor is unavailable.

Mayhem and Nemesis got together again today. We recorded the music for "Empires left in the Dark" and Mayhem got the solo in and everything, we just need to get the recording to Venom, and he'll get the voice in and then it'll be set. ON another note, Bathory had been sacked, and Venom has been forced to step up to bass and lead vocals.

Today...was a great day...Mayhem, Nemesis, and Emperor (now Darkthrone) skipped the sanity bin known as "school" and came across a drumset in a pawn shop. Emperor became Darkthrone and took up the drum position. It's all done our first official full band line-up.
A small rehearsal came into play yesterday and the result was not good or bad. It was just good keeping the band on the same page and not falling apart from all the lags...Emperor is comming along quite well in his bass practice, but Drums may be his future. Nemesis and Mayhem will be discussing this issue tonight.
Nemesis can act like a fucking CUNT sometimes(but we like that about him haha).especially when we try to talk to him about what our music is...when i say its a mix of black metal and punk he flips. but hes just in denial that it has it even when i tell him that its horror punk which is what we wanted when we first got together -,- but you know what? that is why we all love that guy! its never a dull moment with him haha...but anyways i want to find a bassist. i like playing bass and all that. but i would love to join Nemesis on guitars. i think if me and Nemesis both played guitar together we could come up with some sick shit. besisdes i started out on guitar when i was looking to start a band;i was gonna be rhythm guitar and vocals. oh well. we'll see what happens when i talk to them about it today.
so now that Venom has got some time on his hands he shall be getting a lot of work done for the band. more lyrics and more music.Venom will be discussing some issues with Mayhem and Nemesis.
but anyways here is what has happened.
Mayhem has changed from Bassist to drummer and Venom has become a bass player and vocalist.
Nemesis is still the guitarist.
yeah i know,we make a ton of changes.its a pain in the ass but its worth it all.
Mayhem has just solved a big problem! As of three minutes ago he informed Nemesis that he will take on the Bass responsibiltys
........the slow down has not picked up one bit. Nemesis has written some more lyrics, and he's awaiting Mayhem to write some music for them. Venom has been very tied up with his job. Next practice should commence this week somtime, and we're gonna make the most of it we can. The genre has brought up some conflict as well...Venom has suddenly started to get stubborn saying "our music really has alot of punk in it" and Nemesis argues "It may not be Black metal anymore, but it's definatly not PUNK!", Mayhem being his normal self remains silent about the issue...but the important thing is, it's good sounding music.
Huge slow down in progression...
I've purchased an Arion Metal Master distortion pedal, and I can't describe it as any other word than "dissapointing
A new song was written but no music for it yet, we're gonna leave it up to Mayhem most likely. It's called "Empire's left in Darkness". Find what it's about towards the bottom of our band description in our band page.
Good riddance to the one of the Drums. His mind wasn't nearly strong enough to handle the great misterys of the necronomicon, and other uncovered evils we revealed to him. He became a threat to us so we had to make waste of him in the only way we thought fit (of course we can't say it outloud)...moving on...it wasn't much of a loss, the only piece he could create any beat for was "Wolf's Bane", which I must add did go quite well despite his "issues". But it's time to search for a new blood to fill the throne...
We need a god damn bassist!!!
We need a god damn drummer!!!
