Take Heed! Negator are back with a vengeance!
Black Metal is dead – long live Negator! Hailing from the halls of eternal frost, Negator forge their relentless Black Metal in Germany’s eternal Metal-City: Hamburg. In times, when Black Metal is dominated by mediocrity and bands, which celebrate their stylistic und musical deadlock, Negator return after almost five years more passionate than ever. True to their deathless credo "Lined up to create values – made to be indispensable!" (From ‘Eisen Wider Siechtum’ of DIE EISERNEN VERSE, 2005) this Black Metal-armada has brought in an album which is second to none. In order to meet the essence of "big is better", Negator once again chose sound expert Eike Freese (Dark Age, Callejon amongst others) and entered his EiKey Studios in Hamburg so as to provide the best and most relentless sound possible. Think of Belphegor’s BONDAGE GOAT ZOMBIE and Behemoth’s EVANGELION. Their third album, which is literally entitled PANZER METAL, comes up with a monster of a sound that is simply top-notch. Negator play unique Black Metal which is rooted in the very Nineties, when Black Metal still was not rendered effeminate and construed neatly. Negator’s quintessence is the spirit of Nineties Black Metal clad in a 21st century sound.
PANZER METAL is an ode to the music, a homage to the blackest Metal: Musically as well as lyrically. Furthermore, their third album ties in with its two predecessors OLD BLACK (2004) and DIE EISERNEN VERSE (2005) – beyond doubt. PANZER METAL is nothing but an uncompromisingly declaration of war concerning the infirmity of today’s Black Metal scene. PANZER METAL will have all musical extremists worldwide raise their horns in awe. The aforementioned declaration comprises eight Blitzkrieg missiles with a total of almost 40 minutes of pure musical infestation. "Durch morsches Geäst, sägt das schwarze Heer" (engl.: "Through rotten branches cuts the black army" (from ‘Feuersturm’) – beholding this immaculate image, you will surely know how PANZER METAL is going to sound! However, despite all the vehemence, the relentlessness as well as the fury, Negator never lose sight of the very song as such and always manage to provide untypical, yet within the scope of Negator most typical finesses and elaborate arrangements. Hardly ever before, there was a Black Metal album in this vein where there was so much to discover. It was five years of peace and silence – now Negator are back with a vengeance and once again rule with an iron fist. Take heed... the Negator is back... the Panzer has already been put into operation... (Anzo Sadoni / METAL HAMMER)

Early Negator (2003-2006):
Nachtgarm, Trolfbert, Berthelm and Tramheim appeared under the banner of NEGATOR to revive the former values of black metal in February of 2003. They recorded their debut album “Old Black“ in August 2003 and got a deal with REMEDY-RECORDS. “Old Black“ was released in February 2004 – the responses have been excellent. Afterwards NEGATOR established themselves in the Black Metal scene and played club concerts together with Marduk, Behemoth and Belphegor as well as several festival gigs (Party-San, Metal-Bash).
One year later, in July 2005, NEGATOR entered the EiKey-Studio of Eike Freese (Dark Age) to record their second album „Die eisernen Verse“. While „Old Black“ has been recorded in order to give a documentation of their roots, the new release was more musically independent. Even though the new songs were much faster and completely without synthesizers, “Die eisernen Verse“ sounds more individual and perfected. Once again, NEGATOR created a brutal sound, which differs from customary black metal releases and convinces with catchy riffing.
The change (2006):
After playing more gigs and a European tour in October 2006, together with SARKOM and KOLDBRANN, Trolfbert, Unholz and Tramheim decided to leave the band to explore different musical territories.
The resurrection (2006-2007):
In late 2006, Nachtgarm and Berthelm started searching for new members to completel the line-up again. This search and alot of other circumstances forced Berthelm to leave NEGATOR too.
Meanwhile, Nachtgarm had found a new drummer in his long-time friend Thorfried and with him came Finnskald (Guitar). In this formation they started to rehearse again. But to complete NEGATOR again they needed two more members and in June 2007 they finally found Axtwald (Guitar) and Richthaym (Bass).
Since the completion of NEGATOR, the whole band is working on new material to bring you the next infernal hellstorm.
Be prepared for the Panzers are rolling again!
Another Change (2008):
Due to several reasons the Line-Up split up again. Finnskald and Nachtgarm are now holding the banners high and working on the third record.
