The black metal brainchild of vocalist and guitarist Deviant
, Arkhon Infaustus was a French band that was formed in 1997.
The first release by the band -- Deviant
was joined shortly after the creation of the project by bassist Torturer -- was the demo tape/EP In Sperma Infernum. A second EP, Dead Cunt Maniac, followed in 2000, and the band expanded to include second guitarist Toxik H. after recording the full-length Hell Injection, which was released in 2001 by the band's new label, Osmose Productions. Conquering Europe's stages was next, and upon returning to the studio to record a new album, the band took on a new drummer, A.ZK6. Filth Catalyst hit store shelves in 2003, and was quickly followed by a split EP with Revenge
. In 2004, the band released Perdition Insanabilis, which led to a tour with death metal icons Deicide
. In 2007, the band released the well-received Orthodoxyn. A double EP, Annunciation, was also released (just prior to the full-length) that same year. ~ Chris True, Rovi
