Amestigon are Austrian black metal OG's, having originally formed in 1995 (with unofficial demos going back to '93). But you might not know it because they have only released one full length album, and that was just recently in 2009. Now they're about to come back with a second full-length slab of complex black metal, Thier, featuring Silenus of Summoning and recently Abigor on vocals during the title track. Main singer Tharen, also an Abigor vet, rips at his grittiest on the by turns melodic and orthodox "Demiurg," the first song on Thier.
