The band Svartrit was founded by Sir N. and Ramn in 2003. They shared the dark desire to conceive pure Black Metal with Svartrit; and the meaning of their music was to be found in their mutual feelings of negativity as well as their interest in Dark Germanic Heathenism and the chaotic and chthonic forces represented therein.
In 2004 / 2005, Sir N. and Ramn recorded the first demo for Svartrit: Svarthetens ridå.
Afterwards, the original line-up split up but Sir N. choose to continue with Svartrit. He is the creative mastermind behind this band, who is composing the music and playing all instruments except for the drums.
In 2009, Sir N. decided to record three full-length albums and Svartedöden joined him as lead vocalist and lyricist; together they recorded the albums numbered "I", "II", and "III".
With the conclusion of this first trilogy, Sir N. already wrote four albums of new material. Svartedöden decided to start up a record label, Ancient Records, to release and to promote the music of Svartrit and the related projects of Sir N.
In 2015, Sir N. decided to part ways with Svartedöden: Neither is he part of the various bands and projects of Sir N. (Svartrit, Grav, Draug, Esh, Helgedom, Grifteskymfning, Reverorum ib malacht, Dödfödd, Vanskapt, Acerbitas, Kaos Sacramentum,Hädanfärd, Ondo etc.) nor will he be permitted to (re-) release any of Sir N.'s records anymore.
Thus spake Sir N., in the words of his own and of no one else.
