Biography

Copenhagen, Denmark (1991 – present)

Saturnus is a band from Copenhagen, Denmark formed in 1991, playing melodic death doom metal, with touches of gothic metal. They sing of sorrow, loss, and death. They’re known for switching between three vocal styles - clean, growl and recitation.

In 1991 lead vocalist Thomas A.G. Jensen started looking for people to start a death metal band. He hooked up with bass-player Brian Hansen who was also looking for people into the same act. After a few months the band (at that time called “Assesino”) was joined by a drummer and guitarist. In 1992 the drummer was replaced and an additional guitarist entered the band. In the following year a number of musicians entered and left the band.

In 1993 the people of Assesino were Thomas A.G. Jensen (vocal), Brian Hansen (bass), Christian Brenner (guitar), Pouli Choir (drums), Kim Sindahl (guitar). The band played at a metal-competition (Judgment Day) in BarBue (Huset, Cph.) and ended up second out of eight bands. Shortly after the band split up and Thomas, Brian and Kim Sindahl found a new drummer, Jesper Saltoft. A month later Kim Sindahl left the band and guitarist Mikkel Andersen joined in. It would not be long after Mikkel joined the band that a keyboard player was found, his name Anders Ro Nielsen. At this time the name “Assesino” was replaced by Saturnus.
