The 'Honour And Darkness Series'


Band: URUK HAI
Items: The 6 releases in the "Honour And Darkness Series" by Wulfrune Worxx (France)
Format: Tape releases with black and white inlays, containing a mixture of new and previously issued material
Edition: Each tape in the series comes in a hand-numbered run of 39 copies

A couple of past Blogs have referred to the "Honour And Darkness Series" of tapes that have in 2009 been issued by the French Wulfrune Worxx label. As Nazgul has a couple of free moments - and as this is a very exciting thing to happen around Castle Nazgul - a few words about the Series seemed appropriate, and is hopefully of interest to you all !

The plan from Hugin was as follows: 2 extensive tape re-issue programmes to go through Wulfrune Worxx, the first 10 tapes in a series called "Remember CC", which links to the old material released through the Chanteloup Creations label (also from France) back in the early 2000's, but also containing newer material. This series contains releases by Hrossharsgrani, Uruk Hai and Elisabetha and is in the Wulfrune catalogue as WW80 through to WW89. Each tape is limited to 44 pieces.

In addition, a second series - the "Honour And Darkness Series" - was created in a set of 6 tapes, each bearing the letters of Nazgul's name in the catalogue reference. This series celebrates the work of the HonourAndDarkness Blog, and each tape is only available in a numbered edition of 39 (this being Nazgul's age!).

The titles in this series are as follows:

WW-N "After The War (Orcish Battle Hymns Part IV)"
WW-A "Morgoth"
WW-Z "Balrog
WW-G "Black Blood, White Hand"
WW-U "Die Festung"
WW-L "A Dark Force Shines Golden"

and of course rest assured a full review will be coming along for all titles in both series in due course, as they all line the groaning library shelves in Nazgul's crumbling edifice high overlooking the cemetery.

The quality of the artwork on the opened out inlays for both Series is stunning, even in simple black and white xeroxed format, and Nazgul is reliably informed that the original first-run copy of each tape that Alex possess has professional laser printed covers, which must look awesome!

What more is there to say, really? Nazgul is both humbled and honoured to witness this singular event to accompany the development of the Blog site that you are now reading, and offers hails and great thanks to both Alex and Skogen once again for hatching such a cunning plan!
