Formed in 2008 by BST and Daniel Wilding (now in Carcass), then respectively guitarist and drummer for Aborted, The Order of Apollyon's aim since the start has been to incarnate the Word and the Wrath of God. Debut album "The Flesh," released by Listenable in 2010, was based on the dichotomy opposing the material world, the world of the Flesh, and the world beyond matter, bathed in His light and His glory.
After a radical lineup change, and the induction of new blood coming from the depths of France's underground black metal scene, The Order of Apollyon started playing more shows, including France’s Hellfest, and prepared second opus, "The Sword And The Dagger," with a more radical approach to both music and lyrics, and including a wider range of influences, from raw orthodox black metal and death metal to martial industrial music. The track listing is as follows:
1. Own the Youth
2. Hatred Over Will
3. Our Flowers Are the Sword and the Dagger
4. Al 'ankabout
5. Hold Not Thy Peace, O God of My Praise
