Blackdeath was founded back in 1995 in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

From the very foundation to this day Blackdeath has chanted and is chanting the Apocalypse which befalls everywhere: from deeps of human psyche till chasms of the endless Space. Blackdeath plays Apocalyptic Black Metal exclusively. At this date Blackdeath released eight full-length albums, the latest one Gift unleashed in January 2015, as well as several EPs and splits with such bands as Celestia, Horna, Leviathan and some others. The line-up has changed since the foundation and for the latest several years it consists of Abysslooker (guitar), Colonel Para Bellum (vocals and bass) and Polar Maya (drums), while in the autumn 2014 Der Nukleare Herjann, the chief of Dutch label Heidens Hart Records, joined the band as a live guitarist. Blackdeath is active for gigs both in Russia and Europe, for example, in 2012 the band took part in the famous German Black Metal festival Under The Black Sun, and in November 2013 had a tour through France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Hungary, and in the autumn 2014 had a tour through Finland.

In January-February 2015 took part in European tour of Inquisition Obscure Verses for the Multiverse, during which Blackdeath gave 18 concerts in Germany, Poland, Czech, Switzerland, Italy, Luxembourg, France, The Netherlands, Denmark, Austria and Belgium, while in October-November the same year Blackdeath had a mini-tour through Israel. In January-February 2016 the band had shows in Netherlands, Czech, Lithuania, Estonia and Finland within their own tour Winter Plaguing Gift.

In February 2017 Blackdeath together with Barathrum and Countess had the Fires Of Destiny Over Europe tour with shows in Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Germany. The main trio of Blackdeath’s musicians also run the project named Nuclear Cthulhu, whose style is Goat Stoner Metal (visit http://cthulhu.world/ for info). The first live performance of Nuclear Cthulhu took place in November 2015 in Saint-Petersburg.

Also all Blackdeath’s members play live in Cultus, the main band of their live guitarist Der Nukleare Herjan. In 2017 Abysslooker and Col.

Para Bellum reanimated their ambient/drone project Cthulhu, whose first demo was released back in 1996: together with Polar Maya as the second guitarist and Acidkopf, bass player from the Russian Avant-garde Black Metal band VTTA, they prepared a new program and started a concert activity. All the details about the band’s history as well as the lyrics can be viewed at the official site http://www.blackdeath.world/ .News from Blackdeath's life are depicted on page https://www.facebook.com/trueblackdeath . All the albums can be listened to at the official account http://trueblackdeath.bandcamp.com/ . While going through creative experiments and musical development Blackdeath is still faithful to its credo: “Blackdeath means Black Metal.”.
