Tharaphita

Created as a solo project of the vocalist-guitarist Ank, Tharaphita soon became one of the most unique Estonian pagan metal bands. The idea of Tharaphita was actually born in 1993 – at the time when the second wave black metal bands ruled the scene mostly in Europe. At the beginning, the band was planned to carry the name Ancestral Damnation, and the music to be raw black-metal.

Created as a solo project of the vocalist-guitarist Ank, Tharaphita soon became one of the most unique Estonian pagan metal bands. The idea of Tharaphita was actually born in 1993 – at the time when the second wave black metal bands ruled the scene mostly in Europe. At the beginning, the band was planned to carry the name Ancestral Damnation, and the music to be raw black-metal. For different reasons, the idea somewhat changed and developed further until the first rehearsals with the initial line-up of Tharaphita in March 1995. It was also the period of choosing the name for the band. In 1995, during August and September, the first rehearsal demo "Must Viirastus" was recorded. During the time, the black-metal core of the music became complemented by pagan thinking, some epic elements and influences of heavy and thrash metal. The lyrics of Tharaphita are in Estonian, which is important to their identity. The first gig of Tharaphita took place in 18.05.1996. For now, there have been more than 80 gigs, also in other Baltic states, Finland and Norway, besides their homeland Estonia. They have shared the stage with bands such as Paradise Lost, Hypocrisy, Katatonia, Rotting Christ, Ensiferum, Arkona, Skyforger and Susperia. « hide
