Lamashtus - Sinister Avant Garde Black Metal

''The sound was inspired by movies I have seen that included horror and fear. I am fascinated by dark folklore and hidden stories. I incorporated this concept into the music, but also somehow mesmerizing the listener (this was most notable on my album "Hypogeum Of The Netherworld")


‘’What inspired me to play Black Metal was from listening to many underground bands since I was 11. I was exposed to extreme genres at a young age. It inspired me to make such extreme music someday.

‘’ The idea of my band started in 2019, I always wanted to start my own band and have a particular style that will stand out from the rest of other bands. I was inspired by bands such as Deathspell Omega, Portal, Blut Aus Nord and many more.

‘’It allows me to create a chaotic personality into the music and more ways to develop creativity on my own. ‘’The origins of the original name "Lamashtu" can be traced back to Sumerian and Mesopotamian mythology. Lamashtu stalks and threatens pregnant women during and after their pregnancy.

Your latest release Insentient Ascendancy… “Insentient - Ascendancy is an experimental album that focuses on progression, technique, and aggression. I took the idea of making an album like this because the Black Metal scene didn't have many bands that do mix these influences often apart from a couple of other bands. (Iskalde Morket, Dodecahedron, Imperial Triumphant, Mitochondrion) I consider my album as "Dissonant Technical Black Metal" Do you stand alone or support inconceivable wickedness …


‘’To understand the darkness, you have to become part of it to see the light at the end of the tunnel, in which everything becomes balanced out. The sinister warlike nature Lamashtus ...

‘’It is driven by experiences and embracing the chaotic nature of Black Metal and other extreme genres, in which are also influenced in my music as well. the disgust for modern society… ‘’Society has gone vastly downhill, but a nice natural selection should fix that.

lyrical inspiration…


‘’It is taken from inspiration from religious stories, dark folklore, necromancy, black magik and the many traits of the occult. The dimensional realms and cosmos...

‘’It is throughout the album, from start to finish. The greatest book…

‘’The greatest book is reading back your own life and past experiences, it’s what makes you who you are today. Future musical plans…

‘’Making a few more albums and future side projects within the extreme metal scene. Top 6 albums of all time:
