Martial industrial project founded in March 1999. Wappenbund is the musical continuation of his previous project Ophir, and often includes collaborations with various other artists. Wappenbund plays a harsh epic music of bombastic martial drumming and neo-classical melodies, often accompanied by Sven's distorted vocals. The first material was a self-released cassette in 1999 entitled "Schlacht". In 2000, the EP "Blood And Fire" was released and marked the founding of Bussler's label Greyland Records. The first full-length "Zeitenwende" was released in 2001. While 2003 saw the release of the boxset "Preußen" and the CDr "Schlacht - The Final Chapter", which included material from the 1999 cassette aswell as new tracks. Intended as the final album of new material, "Kinder Des Lichtes" was released in 2004, and a CDr of rare and unreleased tracks entitled "Heimatsflamme" come out the following year. The project (Wappenbund) and it's label (Greyland) announced their end in 2004, although continue to be active on occasional projects.
