"Watain / Goatwhore / Black Anvil / Panzerfaust / Empyrean Plague Opera House, Toronto ON December 4"

By Laura WiebeWatain's headlining show in Toronto was a sense- and mind-numbing experience. Between the ceremonial aesthetics and a miasmic stench, the Swedes maintained an eerie presence long before their grand entrance. Instead of succumbing to the strength of Watain's oppressive aura, tourmates and Canadian openers seemed to embrace the vile atmosphere. But in the end, it proved impossible to upstage a band so willing to mesmerize and disgust.

Empyrean Plague were a logical choice to open the anti-festivities, their folky black metal suiting the murky environment and setting the stage for the sounds to come. - exclaim.ca

"Concert Review: Black Metal Mayhem III Day One, at Katacombes, January 23rd"

While most black metal vocalist do their very best to sound as if being strangled from the inside with sandpaper, the two singers in Thunder Bay’s Empyrean Plague added frequent death metal growls, as well as the occasional Viking bellow, to balance out the treble. Powered by drummer Treachery’s intense pounding, the band mixed modern American metalcore elements into their bass-heavy crush, as they tore through set highlights We Are the North and Sheathed in Hate. - montrealgazette.com

In 2002, Empyrean Plague began to take form in the vast forests of the Canadian North. Influenced by the harsh northern winters, founding members and guitarists Turmoil and Pawn, began crafting their ruthless, yet melodious sound. Soon after, they sought out others of like mind, enlisting drummer Treachery and recruiting bassist Dertah (Vanquished) to begin work on their first demo...
Upon completion, Dertah returned to Vanquished as E.P. began the quest for a permanent bassist. After some time they came upon their missing link, a lost spirit by the name of Unborn...
Empyrean Plague was now complete. In late 2003 they began recording for their debut full length album and set forth "Conquering the Elements". In years to come Pawn decided to leave the band and Unborn took up the guitar duties. Now the search for a new bass player was at are backs. It took patience to find a a new soul for this position but, with time it would be a reality. Keltisch came into the brood with all that could be desired and all was complete! ..
