Dissecting, slicing and recombining the musical DNA of extreme Metal since 2001, OTARGOS aim to achieve exactly the right balance between Industrial Metal’s coldness and powerful, fierce Dark Metal attacks, with brutal assaults of Death Metal and the majesty of Black Metal, willing to force the listener staring into the pitch black abyss of cosmic finitude with a sardonic smile.
Not content to walk on trodden paths, the band explored, since the very beginning, new musical and lyrical event horizons. Their debut albums “Ten-Eyed Nemesis” (2005) and its follow-up, “Kinetic Zero” (2007) plunged deep into destructive sonic outbursts, into the total chaos of matter melting with time and space. With their third and fourth full-lengths, “Fuck God-Disease Process” (2009) and “No God – No Satan” (2010), OTARGOS closed a ten years chapter of Black Metal inspirations to embark on a celestial journey into unknown territories of chaos and explore a multiverse of darkness.
In 2013, OTARGOS released its fifth full-length, “Apex Terror”: a heavier and more Blackened Death Metal-oriented release, more modern and powerful, even more unorthodox than all of its predecessors, yet definitely true to their trademark style established since more than a decade but you marking the beginning of a new era of Dark Extreme Metal for the band where, link for the big crunch, every single particle collapse to create an ensuing big bang.
As a real live band and touring machine, OTARGOS have performed countless shows since the band’s inception, including several tours in Europe and South America with bands such as WATAIN, DESTRÖYER 666, DARK FUNERAL, ANAAL NATHRAKH… always showcasing a modern, focused, cold, violent yet magnificent and impressive live display of its unique dark essence through an immersive experience.
More violent yet more balanced, heavier yet more catchy than ever, exclusively inspired by cosmology and the Warhammer 40K universe, OTARGOS’ sixth studio full-length, “Xeno Kaos”, a massively destructive extraterrestrial incursion of gigantic scale, got released through KAOTOXIN late 2015 to both the fans and press acclaim, soon followed by appearances at majore festivals throughout Europe, including HELLFEST (FR), INCINERATION (UK) and many others.
OTARGOS is now busy writing their future new album planned for a tentative 2018 release.
