Biography

Canada (1984 – present)

The Canadian outfit known as Blasphemy was formed in 1984. They are known for creating a small sub-genre known as “”. Each member does not go by their real name, but use ‘’ritual’‘-style titles instead. Blasphemy is considered a band, and while the guitar riffs/solos and blast beat drumming certainly fit the black metal mold, the vocals have a more edge to them, similar to Von or Sarcófago. They are recognized as being one of the first, if not THE first, band to play black metal in Canada, at a time when few metal scenes around the world had even heard of black metal. Their discography is as follows:

Blood Upon the Altar (demo) - 1989
Fallen Angel of Doom (LP) - 1990 [re-released on LP & CD in 2007 via Nuclear War Now! Productions]
Gods Of War (LP) - 1993
Die Hard Rehearsal (demo) - 2001
Live Ritual - Friday the 13th (live LP) - 2002

Despite the fact that their releases are few in number, and they have not released a full length album in over 10 years, Blasphemy is still active as of this writing.
