Abigor

General Information

Year of Foundation:  1993

 

Black Metal is back on peoples radar. Mostly because of bands such as "Liturgy" or "Wolves In The Throne Room" which took certain elements of style & aesthetics from the Genre and then served this mixture of Nordic Black Metal, Thrash Metal, noise rock and shoegaze to a wider audience.
To outsiders this might feel like Black Metal but for true fans of the genre this reinterpretation has nothing to do with the original intention and motivation. TT (Thomas Tannenberger) from Abigor shares this view - Abigor being an Austrian band which has played a significant role in shaping this genre since the early 1990s.
