Weltmacht (German for "World Power") was an American black metal band formed in DeKalb, Illinois in 1998. Members of the band all went by pseudonyms: "Lord Imperial" (Neill Jameson), "Akhenaten" (Andrew Harris) and "Cryptic Winter" (Duane Timlin). During this period, they also performed and/or recorded with Krieg (Lord Imperial's main outfit). Lyrical themes reveal a fascination with nihilism and war, rather than more common black metal themes such as Satanism, anti-Christian blasphemy and paganism. After the demise of Weltmacht in 2002, Lord Imperial went on to form N.I.L. and Duane Timlin eventually joined Dying Fetus.
