From the Promoter
One of the first truly extreme Metal bands, not only in Canada but around the world, BLASPHEMY invokes a large degree of respect. Founded back in 1984, the band is often cited as being a pioneer of the Death/Black 'War Metal' sound. After a demo and two very well received albums, the band had cemented their legacy very quickly. Their importance has been affirmed by the number of times those two legendary albums, 'Fallen Angel Of Doom'' and Gods Of War' have been issued and reissued around the world. They set a standard that many still follow today.
Black/death metal band from the US. Initially formed in 1990, the band was named Irreverent from 1991 to 1996, then changed their name to Witchery from 1996 to 1999. As there were other bands of the same name, the name was then changed to Black Witchery.
