History
The band existed under another monicker between 1991 and 1993 and changed its name to the ‘kiss of shame’ in reference to a Satanic greeting. It disbanded in 2002 – although had ceased activity in 1999 - and tried another round beginning 2008.

Satanic Revival was a 1993 demo. Sadomatic, Impure Artgoat was a 1994 demo. The band’s debut album arrived in 1997. Dor-Nu-Fauglith is a Lord of The Rings reference and means ‘The Land Suffering And Choking In Ashes.’ Quwm was a 2010 7” EP.

I. Luciferia left the band claiming joint pains. The group was featured in a documentary called Bleu Blanc Satan about early French black metal. The band was booked for Steelfest Open Air for 2020.

The band claims to be non-political, but has been connected to the NSBM movement. Malkira was in Kristallnacht referencing Nazis. The track Kein Entkommen featured lyrics by Asura of Morke, a Nazi band. In tandem with an Arkhon Infaustus’ re-release, Osculum Infame’s The Black Theology EP was being re-issued through Impure Wedding Productions in 2021. It was originally released through Mordgrimm in 2000.

Osculum Infame translates to ‘The Kiss Of Infamy’ from Latin and refers to the embrace and a ritual of black magic.
