Band members
Nag : bass, vocals Draugluin : guitars, backing vocals Anti-Christian : drums


Anno 1993: Berserk (guitar) and Nag (bass/vocals) form TSJUDER, who are joined shortly by Draugluin on second guitar in 1994.

After a year of intense rehearsals and writing, the band emerges with the first demo offering entitled "Ved Ferdens Ende". The demo hits the underground with a welcome presence, but it is not long till Berserk leaves the band, and Nag and Draugluin remain the "main force" in the band till the present day.

1996 sees the next demo "Possessed" showing a much "rawer" sound, which fits the TSJUDER style and attitude much better than the previous demo. This year also sees the welcome arrival and departure of Torvus on drums. The band would not replace him till Desecrator joins the folds in 1997, and that year also sees another member, Diabolus Mort, align with the outfit on the second guitar. The recorded result is the EP "Throne of the Goat" released that same year on Solistitium Records, and again strengthening the band's underground following.

However the very near future sees yet another change, and both Diabolus Mort and Desecrator decide to choose a lesser path and leave the band. As we all see by now, this does not stop the metal machine known as TSJUDER, and the band recruits Blod of GEHENNA fame on drums and Arak Draconiiz of ISVIND on guitar.

This line up records a rehearsal demo, entitled "Atum Nocturnem", yet it ends up being released officially by At War Records in 1999 which leads to a record deal with Drakkar Productions for two albums and subsequent tours!

"Kill for Satan" is released to a great response and a tour is planned right away, so fast however that due to prior commitments, Blod steps aside and Anti-Christian steps in behind the drums for the touring duties.

Shortly after in 2000, Arak Draconiiz moves from Oslo and Paal assumes the guitar duties. But his departure is quick. Shortly after follows Anti-Christian, forced to leave due to illness, being replaced by Jontho (RAGNAROK) and they spend the beginning winter months recording what becomes the 2002 release "Demonic Possession". Once again on Drakkar Productions. Norwegian Mester Productions also re-released the "Throne of the Goat" EP on picture disc that same year.

2003 sees the return of Anti-Christian! Jontho's duties in RAGNAROK take him away, and a brother comes back into the fold. This "rejoining" of forces is productive and the band catches the eye of Season of Mist in France. An alliance is made quickly, and "Desert Northern Hell" is created.

TSJUDER recorded their third offence "Desert Northern Hell" in Norway earlier this year. With a better production and more variations in the song structures throughout the album, TSJUDER created an uncompromising milestone of True Black Metal, to be compared with the early ENSLAVED and IMMORTAL albums, in true spirit of the early 90's.
