Patronymicon was started in 2008 by N.sadist as a one man band to without boundaries or compromises make black metal in his desired way. After some time N.Sadist entered the studio to record the first demo known as ‘Coldborn’.
He took help from K.C and as the recording proceeded K.C got deeper involved and it was decided that he took the role as a member of Patronymicon.In the end of 2010 Patronymicon got a record deal from the Mexican label Blackcrowned Records. N.Sadist recruitied J. Megiddo and Kvist to the band and the recording of the debut album ‘Prime Omega’ started and was released in the Fall of 2011.
After that Patronymicon did a few shows and also got in contact with Carnal Records which later got into a deal for the second opus ‘All Daggers Towards The Sky’ During the process of writing the album Kvist had to quit the band due to personal reasons. Megiddo also decided to leave due to other commitments. P.Locust was called in to replace Kvist on the drums and N.Sadist took the string section and vocals on the recording.
A couple of live shows was performed and N.Sadist used C.K and J. Malice as session musicians during the shows. When the recording was done and sent to the pressing plant N.Sadist sat down and had some discussions with H.Sulphur regarding Patronymicon and the course of the band. During these talks H.Sulphur agreed to join Patronymicon as it’s draconian voice and at the same time J.Malice became a permanent member.
‘All Daggers Towards The Sky’ was released in may 2013 and Patronymicon has since then done some shows with the new line up and started the work for future curses. During this time Patronymicon inked a deal with Osmose Production which is the bands current label.
In 2015 P.Locust decided to quit the band which put the progress of writing material and promoting ADTTS to a halt. Soon there after Y.Nifl started to rehearse with the band. A lot of turmoil around the band kept slowing down the progress for a couple of years. Frustration grew which nourished the hunger and the members came together with renewed determination and strated rehearsing extensively. Y.Nifl was sworn in as a full member of the band and proved to be a productive force which sped things up further.
