Band Information

Spear of Longinus is perhaps Australia’s most notorious and most forthright NS-aligned band, drawing lyrical inspiration from various aspects of so-called Nazi occultism. Their musical style is primarily thrashy black metal that is fairly rudimentary in its execution, except for The Yoga of National Socialism which has a distinctly "oi" punk sound.

The band formed in Brisbane in 1993 and its first demo appeared mid-1995. An album cut on 12" vinyl was recorded about a year later but remained unreleased until 1998. Sometime that year SOL either split or went on an extended hiatus after the recording of "Nada Brahma". In the interim Death Dealer (who up until 1994 was also a member of the original Gospel of the Horns line-up) and Griffiths formed the thrash band Vomitor. By 2001, Camazotz had relaunched Spear of Longinus as a live unit, although due to the controversial nature of its beliefs, the band plays live rarely however recorded output is steady. Mouse from Iron Lightning was a member for a while and the current bass player is Thaal from Forn Valdyrheim.

The 2004 release was a box set of previously unreleased material. ...and the Swastikalotus is a companion volume to the TYONS album, stylistically similar and apparently recorded at the same time.
