Otargos - Biography




Dissecting, slicing and recombining the musical DNA of extreme Metal since 2001, OTARGOS takes aim at the barbed wired crown of the dark genre. Spewing forth hate filled contempt, OTARGOS achieves exactly the right balance between industrial coldness and powerful fierce metal attacks.

Not content to walk on trodden paths, the band explored new musical and lyrical horizons on their debut albums Ten-Eyed Nemesis (2005) & Kinetic Zero (2007), which plunge destructive sonic outbursts into the total chaos of matter, time and space. OTARGOS bases its philosophy on cosmology and a dark anti-theistic vision of humanity and future.

The band signed with Season Of Mist Underground Activists with their third output Fuck God-Disease Process (2009). Closing a ten-years chapter the 4th album No God - No Satan (2010) evokes a quantum leap on every level from songwriting via originality to sound.

OTARGOS will make you stare into the pitch black abyss of cosmic finitude with a sardonic smile...

Actually a "live" band with a lot of shows and tours since the beginning OTARGOS performed several tours in France, Europe (with Watain & Deströyer 666, Dark Funeral, Svart Crown...) and also a Brazilian tour in 2009. The band always searches to express via video clips and live performances an unique modern design to its extreme music.

Joining forces with Listenable Records the 5th album entitled Apex Terror was released this September 2013. Heavier & more death metal... more modern and powerful, simply the best OTARGOS album ever.

This new LP displays a fresher, stripped down, more intense songwriting, very immersed in the catchier death and obscure thrash metal genre.

Upcoming with fresh visual aestheticism and thematics, OTARGOS enters a new era of dark extreme metal.
