Background

Abigor is an Austrian black metal band formed in 1993 by Peter Kubik (P.K.) and Thomas Tannenberger (T.T.). After the release of several demos, original vocalist Tharen left the band and was replaced by Silenius, who recorded vocals for all Abigor releases until the recording of Channeling the Quintessence of Satan during which he opted to leave the band. Thurisaz, who had been in the thrash metal band Lost Victim together with Tannenberger in the 1980s, joined the band and finished recordings on Channeling the Quintessence of Satan. In late 1999, Tannenberger left the band for various reasons (ranging from personal problems to being fed up with what once was the "scene"). After his departure, Abigor released two more albums before breaking up in 2003.

In April 2006, Kubik and Tannenberger decided to join forces again. The band released the new album Fractal Possession in 2007.

Many members of Abigor are or were previously in several other bands and side projects in both the black metal and ambient genres. Some of which include: Amestigon, Summoning, Dominion III, Dargaard, Grabesmond, Pazuzu, Darkwell, and Siegfried.
