 “This is Angist. It’s dark, thrashy, black metal and it’s bloody brilliant. You will struggle not to headbang to their music” www.thrashhits.com

From Reykjavík, Iceland hails the deathmetal quartet Angist, formed in 2009 by Edda and Gyða with Halli, Edda’s brother later joining in as bassplayer and with few changes in drummers.
Angist released their two song demo in summer 2010 and a year later they had accomplished to play many high profile shows such as Iceland Airwaves, opening act for Heaven Shall Burn and L’esprit du Clan and get 2nd place in the Wacken Metal Battle (Icelandic log). Many interviews and reviews in magazines, newspapers, webzines and radio followed and the year 2011 ended with the release of Angist’s EP, Circle of Suffering, and a tour around France as an opening act for L’esprit du Clan.
In the year 2012 Angist will for example record their first full-length album, will head out for another tour in France and many other exciting things!

"Petrifyingly powerful, their relentless, atmosphere-steeped and blackened thrust should take its rightful place amongst DM’s kvlt elite". –Metal Hammer

"Arguably, talk of the scene is Angist, who stick out not only due to the savage female vocals but the fact they might be serving up the most evil sounding death metal going right now. It’s plenty cold too, giving them a special edge that will certainly make people stick around and anticipate future endeavors". -Reykjavik Grapevine
