When you think of black metal, our best bet is that you wouldn’t associate the doomsaying genre with a country as vibrant and eclectic as South Africa. In fact, you’d probably go for a polar opposite like Norway or Iceland.
Be prepared for that to change, though, as South Africa’s first ever all-black black metal band has emerged from the musical undergrowth: Demogoroth Satanum. UPROXX News recently ran a feature on the group, and it’s bound to be both satisfying from a musical as well as a cultural standpoint. An all-black metal band from a country previousy so segregated is a cause for celebration, and you can find out more about them below.
