Biography

Alghazanth is a Melodic Black Metal band from Finland but, some albums would convey strong Symphonic Black Metal, dominating the music. The music is an artistic entity channeling the twin stream of all-devouring Darkness and the profound Enlightenment that lies hidden therein. The core of this beast is Black Metal, majestic atmosphere forms the flesh around its bones and Occult Satanism runs through its veins. Though its faces have been many and the shape has shifted often, its current manifestation harbours five damned souls in its flaming heart.

Alghazanth entered our planetary sphere in autumn 1995. The actual conjuration was performed by Veilroth and Gorath but it didn’t take long before two more bastards, Thasmorg and Dreminoc, were lured into the trap. In late 1996, the quartet found a session keyboardist and recorded a 4-tracker demo. Shortly after this Dreminoc turned into a mere outside witness to the sins of the horde whereas A. Simonen joined in as a full-time accomplice. Inhabiting a reformed body, Alghazanth made its studio debut in May 1997 in order to materialize a new demo. The outcome, however, was far from pleasing and so the following summer was full of composing and preparing for a new studio visit. In November a promotape was born and a couple of labels were bombarded with it. This attack resulted in a deal with finnish Woodcut Records.

The first full-size statue of worship, “Thy aeons envenomed sanity”, was sculpted in June 1998 using the tools of the more or less legendary Tico Tico -studio. This creation continued along with the lines of the promo but in a much more refined and detailed way.
