History & Biography
Formed in 1990, and changing its monicker in 1991, by Mr. Sova, Barathrum released several demos like Witchmaster and Battle Cry before signing with a label. The black metal band ostensibly followed the occult and suffered from a bad sound until Spinefarm sent the band to Tico Tico. The label was now responsible for the re-release of the band's first three albums. Barathrum toured with the likes of Babylon Whores, Sabbat (Japan) and Wizard. The band’s founding member moved to Germany and supposedly laid the act to rest. Pelceboop left in 2007, but returned in 2016. 2007 to 2010 drummer Agathon Frosteus died of a brain tumor in 2022. Long Live Satan was a live album. Janne Leinonen left in 2012. He had been in the band for 16 years. Both Ruttokieli and Nuklear Tormentörr played bass on Fanatiko. Disciples Of Filth was a split single between Barathrum and Wrok in 2019.

The group’s album titles’ first letters form the phrase Heil Sova referring to the founding member’s ego. The band is a part-time gig for most considered. Musicians come and musicians go and, in typical fashion, everyone is everywhere at the same time and then again and probably before too. Demonos Sova has been the anchor, but he himself also moonlights around.
