Blut Aus Nord (French: [blut o nɔʁ], German: [bluːt aʊs nɔʁt]) is a black metal band from Mondeville, Calvados, France,which has incorporated avant-garde elements in its music.

Vindsval began a solo project, under the name "Vlad", in 1994. He released two demos before changing the project'sname to Blut aus Nord, before the release of Ultima Thulée in 1995. The next three albums were recorded with the aidof session musicians. It is only recently that the group has had any permanent members apart from Vindsval.

The project's most critically acclaimed release is The Work Which Transforms God,[3][4] a concept album which, inspite of being mostly instrumental with none of the lyrics made public, is meant to challenge the listener's prejudicesand preconceptions about reality and various metaphysical subjects.[5] The album was named by Terrorizer Magazineas one of its top 10 albums of 2003. So far, Vindsval has only allowed the lyrics from one of Blut aus Nord's full-length releases, Memoria Vetusta I, to be made public. According to journalist Avi Pitchon, "Blut Aus Nord areresponsible, perhaps more so than any band, for the most recent evolution within black metal. 2003's 'The WorkWhich Transforms God' introduced us to the warped, collapsing mutation of 'black hole metal'; nowadays also calledshoegazing BM."[5.

Vindsval is head of the underground French record label Appease Me..., which is home to several extreme metal acts,in addition to Blut aus Nord.

On their follow-up release, 2006's MoRT, Blut aus Nord moved even further away from traditional black metal. Thesound on MoRT is closer to experimental metal, comprising a mixture of dark and surreal noises and sounds thatcreate a disturbing and bleak atmosphere.

Blut aus Nord's 2007 album Odinist: The Destruction of Reason by Illumination (the subtitle being a quote fromAleister Crowley[6]), was leaked to the Internet on September 10, 2007. While the album's superficial sound is similarto that of MoRT, the album demonstrates a return to more traditional black metal songwriting and structure.

The sequel to Memoria Vetusta I, subtitled Dialogue with the Stars, was released in February 2009. In June 2010 theyreleased a LP entitled "What Once Was...Liber I" on Debemur Morti Productions. They are currently scheduled to re-release The Mystical Beast of Rebellion in early 2011 thru Debemur Morti with an additional CD of newly recordedmaterial meant to act as a complimentary work to the original.

The name "Blut aus Nord" translates from German as "Blood from the North", though the non-standard grammarsuggests nautical jargon (a more standard phrasing would be "Blut aus (dem) Norden" or "Blut von Nord(en)," thoughcardinal directions are seldom used in spoken German to begin with).
