Biography

There are two vastly different current artists using the name Antaeus, and (apparently) two past ones.

(1) Antaeus, the French Black Metal band, formed in Maisons-Laffitte, Île-de-France, France in 1994. They have released three full-length albums to date: Cut Your Flesh And Worship Satan (2000) and De Principii Evangelikum (2002) released on Osmose Productions, and Blood Libels (2006) released on Norma Evangelium Diaboli.

About Blood Libels, Todd DePalma of StylusMagazine.com said, “Melody is tempered through vivid motion, recycling a violent conquering of style. Upstrokes rake hopeless feeling across incessant blast-beaten rhythm, falling like copper shavings into an open sore… Structure betrays a craft in tune with the adamantine will. The mordant efflorescence is reset through ambient refrains, suspiring in the aftermath or else opening like a valve between them as toxic pools reflect a fetid attraction to misery and imprisonment of the body—a spiritual negative condensed in the title track’s provocation to prove we’re ‘more than flesh.’” Jeremy Garner of MetalReview.com notes that “the attenuation of mood is absolutely flawless. ‘Words As Weapons’, ‘Here Is Punishment’, and ‘Blood Libels’ all act as damn impressive moments flesh tearing guitar lines and pernicious vocals enveloping the listener in a fog of aural torture and despair by creating interesting juxtapositions between atmosphere and the no quarter attitude of songs like ‘Cyklik Torture’.
