Belphegor Bio:

Belphegor is an Austrian blackened death metal band from Salzburg, originally formed in 1991 under the name Betrayer before changing their name in 1993. 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. 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. The band's second album Blutsabbath was released in October 1997, featuring Man (of Mastic Scum) on session drums. The following year, the third album Necrodaemon Terrorsathan was released by Last Episode (nowadays known as Black Attakk), where Man again performed session drums. The band eventually left Last Episode and later denounced them as a "rip-off label". In January 2001, Belphegor headlined a few shows at outdoor venues at 'Fuck The Commerce IV', 'With Full Force VIII' and 'Hell On Earth' in Germany with support from Dunkelgrafen and Dawn of Dreams.

    […] Belphegor are underrated, the type of band I try to get babes to listen to with me as a litmus test (though with really cool girls they are already down). The title track to their latest is a blood boiler, complete with a crazy evil lady crawling around and somehow being sexy even as she pukes up bloody nails and writhes in evil ways while the band use bones as drumsticks and act Satan as fuck. I had some edibles a little while ago and this shit is bugging me out. Hope this band finally get more of the props they deserve, especially since they have come back so strong after vocal beast Helmuth had fucking typhoid fever!!! How metal is that? The only thing more metal is Jeff from Slayer getting that necro-rot spider disease the poor guitar legend endured in his last days. […]
