Black Pestilence

Formed in 2008, Black Pestilence combines grimy punk rock with electronic noise, all through the devastation of black metal. In 2009, Black Pestilence's first full-length album, "Vice" was independently released. “Vice” was originally released as a one-man solo project. However, later on Valax recruited live members in order to take the music to the live stage. Founding member, Valax simply describes the music as "black metal built on punk and noise." The album scored favorable reviews on various metal websites such as The Metal Observer and Metal Storm.

In 2011, "Tradition is Obsolete" was released. This album is a representation of Black Pestilence's more experimental side with a strong emphasis placed on electronic noise and samples. Shortly after the release of this album, Black Pestilence performed at the annual Calgary Noctis Metal Festival.

In 2013 Black Pestilence released their third full-length album, “In Defiance”. This album is by far the fastest and most fierce release yet from the band. It features the intense speed from street punk, all presented through the furious lens of black metal. Not to mention the otherworldly samples present throughout the album, it all adds up to one great chaotic mess.

Black Pestilence continues to perform within and outside of the Alberta area.
