Biography

Salzburg, Austria (1991 – present)

Belphegor is an Austrian death/black metal band from Salzburg, Austria, originally formed in 1991 under the name Betrayer before changing their name in 1993. They are named after the demon Belphegor.

Belphegor was founded as Betrayer in 1991 by vocalist and bassist Maxx, guitarists Helmuth and Sigurd, and drummer Chris. The band released their first demo Kruzifixion in April 1991, and Unborn Blood later on. [1] After adopting the name Belphegor in 1993, they released another demo, Bloodbath in Paradise on Maxi-CD format. At somepoint before or after the release of this demo, Maxx departed from the band, resulting in Helmuth assuming his role as both vocalist and guitarist of Belphegor since. In between 1993 and 1996 session member A-X performed bass, after which bassist Mario “Marius” Klausner joined the band as a full-time member.
The band was briefly signed to Perverted Taste Records, the label on which the demo Obscure and Deep was released in 1994. This release featured a cover of the Black Sabbath song Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. Their first album, The Last Supper, was released by Lethal Records in January 1995. At this time the band’s logo was also redesigned to include two inverted crosses surrounded by blood.

    Behemoth246 is right. Despite all of this the new album have nothing special, I didn't heard anything which would make me say "wow", nothing... and every Belphegor album can do this, doesn't matter if it is the Last Supper or Blood Magick Necromance. But I need to listen to it again, only "one try" is not enough, but used to be... lol

    Helmuth was not just 'sick' he almost died from untreated typhus, he had heart and lung surgery.

    I just think, some you you don't know that Helmuth was sick and had a surgery. What's better, Belphegor with weak vocals or Belphegor without Helmuth? Choice is yours...
