Abigor

Abigor is an Austrian black metal band founded in 1993 by PK (guitar) and TT (guitars/drums). They were soon joined by Rune (now known as Tharen of Amestigon) who did the vocals. In the autumn of the same year they released the demo "Ash Nazgh..." and in December they released "Lux Devicta Est". In early 1994 they released the third demo simply titled "Promo Tape 2/94" and the fourth and last official demo, "Moonrise". After the tapes Tharen was replaced by Silenius and the band recorded the rehearsal tape "Hate & Sin" to test the new vocalist and prepare for the first album, signed to the Austrian label, Napalm Records.

In June 1994, they released "Verwüstung / Invoke the Dark Age", which marked them as one of the best bands in their genre. Same year, November, they released "Orkblut - The Retaliation", which was a concept work about the life, death and spiritual quest of a pagan warrior. In 1995 they released "Nachthymnen (From the Twilight Kingdom)", which proved Abigor can make majestic soundscapes of dark atmospheres at its best. Same year they started the recordings for the first chapter of 'Opus IV', entitled 'Horns Lurk Beyond the Stars'.
In May 1996, they finished the second chapter, "Blut Aus Aeonen", for "Opus IV", which was released July 1996. In 1997, the MCD "Apokalypse" was released. It took the band two days to record it and it was their most brutal record so far. In 1998 "Supreme Immortal Art" was released as CD (the last album in the classic 90s line-up PK/Silenius/TT) and studio outtakes of 2 tracks were used for the 7″ "Structures of Immortality". Fans kept asking about material from demos to be released, so Abigor decided to release a limited CD titled "Origo Regium 1993-1994", which comprised of some songs from the demos.

During the recordings of the next studio album, "Channeling the Quintessence of Satan", Silenius left the band and was replaced by Thurisaz (with whom TT already had a Thrash band in the 1980s). The album was recorded and released the same year, and TT left Abigor soon after Silenius.
In 2000 PK and Thurisaz started the work on "Satanized (A Journey Through Cosmic Infinity)", Moritz Neuner joined as drummer. "Satanized" was released in 2001, and PK as the only remanining original member, ended Abigor in 2003.
In March 2006, the original line-up consisting of TT (guitars/drums) and PK (guitars) reunited Abigor, with AR (Arthur Rosar) as the new vocalist and End All Life as new label. in 2013 Silenius rejoined Abigor and the classic 90s line-up was completed. Currently, Abigor record for Avantgarde Music and release CDs, vinyls and tapes on EAL/Noevdia and W.T.C.
