Rhydian, Sussex


In 1314, an order of troubadour knights were sent to Merlan by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. 
These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the UK Black Metal underground. 
Today, still wanted by the Pope, they survive as minstrels of fortune. 
If you have a problem, if no one else can help and if you can find them - maybe you can hire: JALDABOATH... ; 

Once upon a time, our hero Grand Master Jaldaboath set out to travel the nether-regions in search of brother knights with whom to follow the path of the knightly troubadour. 
Thus it was, he came across the mighty Sir Bodrick (ever alert for the call to action and ready with his jousting jocks) and fortune also paved the way for a chance meeting with The Mad Monk – (found residing in a priory trying to pervert the ways of the local christian folk). Thus it was that a new musical fellowship JALDABOATH was formed (named after the Grand Master himself).

A mighty fortress was built (The Castle of Rhydian), and therein the bowels of the castle, an unholy dark lodge was fashioned to allow for marathon music scribing and medieval jiggery-pokery; This brotherhood quickly formed into the finest 'Heraldic Templar Metal' ™ battalion yet known! 

An utterly pompous epic of small proportions came to be fashioned, and the limited edition CD EP 'Hark The Herald' was quietly released exclusively through Death To Music productions in 2008 – this release spawned a cult of followers, and attracted the attention of various labels ; 

An thus it was that this battle-unit did parley and agree terms with Austria's mighty Napalm Records In the year 2010, a full missal of hymns detailing the high adventures of this minstrel-metal trio is finally complete and available throughout Christendom and beyond;
