Black metal band from Ankara, Turkey.

Being one of the oldest Black Metal bands in Turkey, The Sarcophagus was formed in the cold winter of 1996 by Nahemoth (drums) and Heimdall (vocals). After the joining of Thyrouth (ex-Sephiroth/guitars), musical genre became outstanding and band has concentrated on hastening works through this way. At the beginning of 1998, first demo “Pagan Storm” which was composed of an intro and four songs was released. This brilliant sample of classical black metal sound enriched with symphonic keyboards gained a huge success not only in Turkey but also abroad too and distributed by lots of distros/record companies like Moribund Records (USA), Folter Records(Germany), Pussy God Records(Czech Republic) to all over the world. Despite its average sound quality, “Pagan Storm” was qualified as milestone of underground Turkish black metal scene.

Being one the unique bands which bawl black metal existence in Turkey, after Heimdall’s depart, The Sarcophagus has taken part in various gigs and organizations with different line-ups till 1999 especially in Ankara and Izmir. In 2000, drummer Nahemoth also undertook the vocals and entered Zoo recording studios with Thyrouth and Hanephi (ex-Imhotep/bass) to record “Infernal Hordes Of The Ancient Times” demo. Composed of 7 songs including “Servants of darkness” and “Black candle’s dim light” of “Pagan Storm” demo which were re-arranged/re-recorded, this promo was able to be released in 2003 because of some reasons not related with the band.

    Not memorable enough. However Kvarforth does a good job, and it's an overall quite great album.

    Wow, what a surprise, such a nice band i knew nothing about. At first i was a bit suspicious, because of Kvarforth, usually i don't really like his singing style but he did nice job on "Towards the eternal chaos". And please somebody kill, (or something), those guys who tag every metal band with this "altar of the metal gods" -shit. It's not even funny anymore.

    Aslında çok bir "oha”lık durum yok Kvarforth tam anlamıyla kendini müziğe adamış biri olarak şu ana dek hastanelerde geçirdiği vaktinin yarısını stüdyolarda geçirse bir çok farklı projelerde daha kendisini görmüş olacaktık. Buna da şükür diyor ve yeni SHINING albümü çıksın artık ulan diye ekliyoruz kendisine.
