Bio

Angist began fall 2008 when Edda and Gyða sat down and started playing guitar together. The riffs started to pile up so they started to look for people to complete the band.
After trying out few vocalists it was decided that Edda would do the vocals herself as well as playing guitar and Gyða would handle lead guitar. Edda's bone crushing growls fitted the music perfectly and later her brother, Halli joined as a bass player and Hafþór replaced the first drummer, thus completing the Angist line-up in fall 2009.
Different elements of metal, like thrash and black metal came into the mix of the original idea of old-school death metal and with the combination of dark lyrics themed with tales of human misery, destructive behavior and overall degeneration of humanity, the sound of the band was forged.
Angist released their demo in July 2010 and it has received great reviews nationally and internationally where Angist’s reputation is growing. Angist are now finishing their EP, which will be released summer 2011 which includes all new material and will go on tour in France in October 2011 where they will for example play at the biggest metalclub in France.
