BLASPHEMER has been a long running act in the underground since 1998, year in which it was founded by Simone Brigo (also BEHEADED). It has since toured Europe and US, playing many festivals and shows all over the world.
The band released the full length album On the Inexistence of God in 2008 and the EP Devouring Deception in 2010, both through the renowned US-based label Comatose Music, being critically acclaimed in extreme music circuits.
In 2013 the band became quiescent, eventually coming back to the scenes with the release of its sophomore album Ritual Theophagy (Comatose Music, 2016), featuring Darren Cesca (Deeds of Flesh, Arsis, Goratory, etc.) on drums.2017 was the year of rebirth for BLASPHEMER: a new line-up and a different sound, more orientedon pureblood death metal, both by darkness and intensity, and progressively incorporating black metal influences. In June a promo song was released, “Jesus Is Stripped Of His Garments”, eventually to be released in early2019 on a split CD with Neocaesar (featuring early-Sinister former members).
The band signed with Candlelight Records for the CD and LP release of their third album "The Sixth Hour", recorded in 2019, mixed at MKII Studio and mastered at Hertz Studios, Poland.
This album manifests the will of moving forward to a straightforward death metal approach which heavily integrates the evocativity of black metal. After a celebrated past of brutality, BLASPHEMER returns from hell to unleash its unholy chant, depicting the way which led Jesus to his ominous death.
Blasphemer is honoured to be part of 2020's Bloodstock line-up.
We're ready to deliver the deadliest show you could hope for, and we promise no less than pure blackened death metal aggression.
Our new album "The Sixth Hour" is out on 24th January on Candlelight Records. Be prepared!
