was formed in early 2010 by Lazarus (vocals) and Nefar (guitars), shortly after joined by The Fall (bass), EVT (guitars) and Priest (drums).
Rather than following the usual approach to the main themes of black metal, MEDICO PESTE choose to explore a different look at death, religion, The Devil and his work, by viewing them from the eyes and mind of a tormented, neurotic subject and his schizophrenic visions.
It is the topics like madness, religion and nihilism that form the core part of the band’s lyrics, accompanied by music which emanates psychopathic rage, intertwined with a wide range of non-metal influences like post-punk, avantgarde and cabaret music.
In 2014 the band parted ways with Priest, replaced by The Fall for the recording of the EP ‘Herzogian Darkness’. In 2017 Desolator (Bestial Raids) joined the band as permanent drummer.
