Biography

Amestigon is one of Austria’s oldest black metal bands. It was founded in 1993 by Tharen (Also of Dargaard and Dominion III) and Thurisaz (Also of Summoning). Both had been a part of the black metal band Abigor and members of this band still contribute as guest musicians on recordings on Amestigon releases.

The band began by recording two demos, titled Mysterious Realms and Through The Ages We Preserve… respectively. Both were recorded onto cassette format. These demos were enough to get them signed onto Napalm Records and a split CD with the folk metal band Angizia was made as their debut release. Also entitled Myterious Realms, the split CD was released in 1996.

However the band themselves were experiencing difficulties, maintaining a constant line-up proved a problem. After releasing the mini-CD Höllentanz in 1997, the band decided to part ways. This split also marked the end of their relationship with Napalm Records.

Tharen went on to make the innovative neoclassical band Dargaard, and the industrial band Dominion III, but in 1998 his interest in black metal was rekindled and he decided to reform the band. He got in touch with Herr Wolf who agreed to join the band in the winter of 1998 on guitars, shortly thereafter, Silenius of Summoning (Vocals) and Lanz (Guitar and Bass) completed the line-up with Tharen on drums and keyboards. Thurisaz left the band to eventually take over vocal and bass guitar responsibilities for Abigor.
