The beginning of a complex history of Pandemonium dates back to the end of 1989, when Paul and Peter aka Żuber (R.I.P), fascinated by “Necronomicon” and inspired by accomplishments of Hellhammer, Bathory, Venom and Samael, bring into being a first band in Poland which created such dark, majestic and severe Black Metal.
A true veteran of the Polish metal scene – Mordor was formed in 1990 in Częstochowa, a year later they made their debut with Nothing… material released by Baron Records. In 1993 the album Prayer to…, recorded in Izabelin Studio, was released, noticed and appreciated by both listeners and critics. The album was counted among the best gothic / doom metal albums released in Poland. This material has also been released on the Western market by the Norwegian phonographic company Arctic Serenades. The band successfully played a lot of club concerts all over Poland and took part in the most important festivals of metal music in the country. After the changes in the line-up, another material entitled The Earth was released in 1998 by the phonographic company Ars Mundi, which specialized in releasing progressive music, a good fit for the band after the line-up change. The album was met with a very good reception. With new material the band was invited to several concerts in the USA. The album was released outside the European market in the USA, Canada and Japan. In 2000 the band had prepared the material for their next album, but as a result of internal disputes the band resolved. In 2018 the fourth album Darknes… was released by Pagan Rec. The band starts concert activity.
Hellspawn’s line-up, unchanged for over a decade, has been following a classical death metal school combined with symphonic elements. In addition to the material from their latest albums, the band will also preview material from their upcoming fourth album.
