Archenterum was founded in 1997 nearby Avignon (Southern France) by Greg & Matthias (both guitars & vocals). The first effort “Nuclear Forces” a furious mix of harsh black metal and old-school thrash metal, was released in 2000. Then the project entered a period of inactivity. In 2005, J.-L. (bass) joined the band and the second auto-production “Insanity of War” was released in 2009 presenting a more personal death metal.
“Paradoxe 29A” the third musical creation was released in 2012 and has been available on Jamendo since October 2013. “Paradoxe 29A” presents six elaborated and mature songs mixing Archenterum’s death and black metal influences. The band has received a unanimous support from the underground scene.
In 2013, the band decided to take a break in its musical evolution and re-recorded 5 songs from its first effort as well as two unreleased songs freshly exhumed. “Exhumed” will be available on Jamendo soon, so get ready before you get devoured by worms!
