Sauron was one of the first Polish bands which introduced the pagan black metal art to their local Polish scene in 1991 when they were established. Their first release was a demo in 1993, entitled Hellish Requiem. Having gone through active and inactive periods, the band has been recently resurrected. Their latest studio offering is Wara! which saw the light of day in September 2016 through Witching Hour Productions. 2016 also saw the band re-release The Baltic Fog on tape through Witches Sabbath Records and The Land of Dead Sun on vinyl through Wheelwright Productions which was originally recorded in 1997.
