In the end of 2008, after leaving his previous Band “Helrunar“, songwriter and guitar-player Dionysos formed the German Black Metal band UNDER THAT SPELL by including “Sin” on bass (also known as a live member of Helrunar ), “Abyss” on vocals and “Euphorion” on battery.
The concept leading to the band's name relates to the weak spirits of nowadays society and modern life in general. Intended in a hateful but also philosophical manner, “Under That Spell” combines the traditional and atmospheric style of the early 90's with rather modern elements, to express their own interpretation of what Black Metal is today.
In May 2009, the band got signed by the German label War Anthem Records, they released the debut-CD "APOTHEOSIS" on 15th December 2009. After numerous festivals and shows the band is now ready to present their new album "Black Sun Zenith"! This will be a bonfire for fans of Ulver, Kvist, early Enslaved and Arckanum! Out in october 2011! HOMEPAGE: www.underthatspell.com / To purchase the album up from october click here: www.cudgel.de
