History & Biography
DHG, as they are often known as, began as an extreme and true black metal band and became more and more offbeat. An EP called Satanic Art was supposed to appear on Malicious, but ended up on Moonfog out of necessity. The band's lyrics have alternately been described as either utter rubbish or genius. The completely revamped line-up (with only Vicotnik left standing) issued a new album in 2007 after an eight-year absence. The album was licensed by The End Records for America. Vicotnik joined Naer Mataron in 2007 and was also producing the band’s album. Kvohst left the band for personal reasons in late 2007. Vocalist Kvohst soon had a new band called Gangrenator. The new group was reportedly playing grindcore.

In July of 2013, Vicotnik (a.k.a. Yusaf Parvez) of Norway’s Dødheimsgard (DHG) announced the signing of a new deal and that a new record was due that autumn. The band had several shows booked for the summer. Vicotnik took over the vocals again in 2016. Terghl was on drums and Blargh was on guitar. Myrvoll (ex-Aura Noir) joined on drums in 2019. He had been a guest with the band back in 2013 and 2018 as well.

Black Medium Current was preceded by an upload called Abyss Perihelion Transit in 2023. The recordings had been completed a year prior and featured three members’ first recordings with the group. These were Tommy Guns, E. Måløy and Ø. Myrvoll. The band appeared on Peaceville’s 35th anniversary compilation, Dark Side Of The Sacred Star. It also featured a track by Doedsmaghird, which was a new sister act to Dødheimsgard. The group was booked at Canada's Messe Des Morts Festival alongside Blasphemy, Sabathan and others in late 2023 as well.

UK-based avantgarde band Void had an album called Jadjow through Brucia Records in 2023. Jadjow was born out of the DHG Void Dancers tour in 2019 where Void's founding members, guitarist Matt Jarman and Camille Giraudeau both played guitar for the act. DHG's bass player Lars Emil Måløy and sound engineer George Geegor Anagnostopoulos decided to collaborate. The drums on the album were eventually performed by Tariq Zulficar. The band was playing with Beherit and others at Rites Of North in Finland to begin 2024. The band was booked for In Theatrum Denonium in France in 2024.

The band's monicker is Norwegian for 'Realm Of Death.'
