TILINTETGJORT, which translated means “Annihilated”, was formed in the early summer of 2020 by three Oslo-based musicians: Den Gamle and Hazzlegard on guitars, and Sturt: on bass. By the end of the summer the trio was joined by Tybalt on drums and Svik on vocals, cementing their place in the now five-piece lineup.
The newly formed TILINTETGJORT set out to create Avant-garde Black Metal that finds its inspiration not only in the ’90’s Black Metal, in which the band is strongly rooted, but also in ’70’s Prog Rock, along with a variety of other experimental genres.
2021 saw TILINTETGJORT dedicate themselves to the creative process, with the band releasing the digital single ”Vinter og Høst” in September of that year, and making their live debut alongside VED BUENS ENDE and MORTEM in Oslo.
By the time 2022 came along, TILINTETGJORT was ready to begin recording their debut album, entering the Chaka Khan Studio in January. The resulting material was enough to pique the interest of Dark Essence Records, who signed the band a month later.
