ENEPSIGOS was formed in the summer of 2016 by V.I.T.H.R, otherwise known as Doedsadmiral, the founder and frontman of NORDJEVEL, SVARTELDER and DOEDSVANGR, who, like ENEPSIGOS, are all relatively new bands, but whose lineups are composed of hugely experienced musicians, drawn from some of the best known exponents of Black Metal. For ENEPSIGOS, V.I.T.H.R has been able to call on the services of former SARKOM guitarist Straff and drummer Thorns, known for his work with BLUT AUS NORD, DEATHROW, FIDES INVERSA, FROSTMOON ECLISPE and DARVAZA amongst others.
With its roots firmly entrenched in the traditions of early Black Metal, ENEPSIGOS’ music is dark and brutal, with ritualistic undertones, and has been described in the press as having a “vicious intensity”. The, as yet to be titled, follow up to “Plague of Plagues”, whose drums have already been recorded, promises more of the same darkness.
Commenting on the decision to sign with Osmose, V.I.T.H.R had this to say: “It was a natural progression to a bigger label who could take us further along the road. I already knew how Osmose worked, because NORDJEVEL is signed with them, and it has been a close collaboration, with everyone having an input and exchanging ideas. It’s a very productive way to work as far as I’m concerned”.
