Announcement #20: ANTIVERSUM (ch)!
Tonight we are presenting the only Swiss band that KTDF will be hosting this year. With just one demo behind them and a fresh full-length out on Invictus Productions, this Swiss 5 piece plays a hybrid version of death metal – incorporating elements of doom and black metal in the veins of fellow Zürich bands like Bölzer and Deathcult, but still with their own unique style and blend. We are excited to present to you the anti-cosmic entity known as ANTIVERSUM!
Formed in 2010 by dedicated and experienced musicians in the Swiss metal scene, Antiversum is an utterly nihilistic entity, which creates a disturbing, oppressing and storming amalgamation of black, doom, and death metal, manifesting the end of the universe, the dawn of nothingness and the collapse of existence itself in audial waves. Completely detached from every concept of spirituality, religion and other humanistic views, Antiversum began its journey into the void in the spring of 2015, when Invictus Productions released the band’s debut demo, “Total Vacuum”, to international acclaim. After an appearance on a 6-way Split, alongside other Swiss Extreme Metal names such as i.e. Deathcult and Bölzer, Antiversum would further stretch spaces in between the Void with their idiosyncratic vortex of violence, in their first debut Album, “Cosmos Comedenti”, released in 2017 again by Invictus Productions.
