Current line-up:

(l-r) Sidapa: all guitars | Vaz (Black Witchery): drums | Voltaire 666: bass and black vomits


DEIPHAGO was created in 1989 by Voltaire 666, Sidapa and Royce. The band was inspired by the black metal gods Sarcofago, Sodom, Venom, Mercyful Fate and Hellhammer.

They released their 1st demo on 1991 and is a display of total Hellhammer worship with reigning guitar solos and sick vocals. Demo 91 made Deiphago known to the worldwide underground scene. On 1993, inspired by their contemporaries at that time like Blasphemy, Beherit, and Profanatica they released their 2nd demo, a fast grinding black masterpiece mixed with Morbid Angel solos and sicker vocals as V666 sang in a backmasking way the song “Backmask prayer” and also incorporated Beherit’s demonic whispers on “Hail Mary Innana”. Their demo 93 was labeled “exotic black metal”. Through the next years, Deiphago continued to assault the Philippines while they undergo constant line-up changes. On 1997, armed with a new drummer, they released their 3rd demo – the Pagan sessions. Demo 97’s lyrical concept was homage to the Filipino Pagan gods and included 2 tracks - “Bathala”, the song that incorporated elements of Bathory’s “Hammerheart” and “Uwak”, the song that retains their fast chaotic sound from their previous works showing relentless speed. Demo 97 was only distributed among hand-picked local hordes.

By 1998, the band was continuously plagued by line up problems leaving only V666 and Sidapa on the fold. The band remained dormant for 6 years, waiting for the right time to strike back.

On 2004, Deiphago relocated to Costa Rica. The move to Central/South American territories made the perfect backdrop for Deiphago to accomplish their long overdue album profoundly inspired by Sarcofago’s “INRI”. V.666 took over the bulldozer bass duties and continued to spew forth the black vomits, Sidapa still on hateaxes and leads, they acquired the fastest chaotic hellpounder on this part of the planet, Nazgul (of Mortigor). Deiphago began writing new materials and on March 2006, they released a 3 song promo entitled "Rapeslay of the Virgin Mary" which caught the ears of Canadian label Morbid Moon records who immediately signed the band on May 2006 for the release of their 1st album aptly titled “Satanik Eon”.

On November 2006, "Satanik Eon" was officially released to the worldwide masses. "Satanik Eon" is the anti-thesis to the thousand Norsk clone albums being released. “Satanik Eon” is the fist in the face of the current black metal scene and reaffirms once and for all what true black metal should be - unrepentant atomic bomb crushing evil compositions. “Satanik Eon” can only be described as Satanik Black Metal Holocaust.
