BIOGRAPHY

Amestigon was founded in 1995 by Tharen and Thurisaz. Since the release of the first demos, "Through the Ages we preserve..." and "Mysterious Realms", members of Abigor regularly contributed to the recordings as guest musicians. After releasing the two demos, a split-CD with the Austrian folk metal band Angizia and the MCD "Höllentanz", the members of Amestigon parted ways, citing personal reasons as well as the lack of a steady line-up. This separation also marked the end of Amestigon’s cooperation with Napalm Records, who had originally signed the band.

In 1998 Tharen wanted to involve himself once again in the black metal realm, so he gave the band new life. He came into contact with Herr Wolf, who joined Amestigon in the winter of the same year. Only a short time later, Lanz completed the line-up. By that time Silenius also showed interest and was invited to be a steady guest musician for Amestigon releases. Thurisaz left the band and joined Abigor on vocals and bass guitar.

Amestigon produced a promotional CD with old and unreleased material in 2000 ("Remembering Ancient Origins", 5 Songs; ~25 min.) which was limited to 100 copies and sold without any professional distribution.

In 2002 Millenium Metal Music released a split CD with Hellbound. The 4 song Amestigon part was called "Nebelung 1384".

In May 2009 Amestigon finished the production of "Sun of all Suns“ which is the first full length album in the history of the band. The base is Black Metal in the original vein but the songs are also featuring various other musical influences. With Hau Ruck! a competent label had been found to release this masterpiece of destructive art on CD. Thematically the album is very physical, located between the occult and taboo, sociopathy and abuse.

As big vinyl fans members of Amestigon are very proud that W.T.C. Productions will release "Sun of all Suns“ on vinyl including a special vinyl master, a different artwork and the bonus track "Invocation of my Demon Brother“, which already is a window to the upcoming release "Thier".

Currently Amestigon is in the process of finishing the production of the new album "Thier", which is to be expected in 2015. On "Thier“ there is a contentual shift to the metaphysical level. This second full length release is all about creation, magick and will.
