Short bio: 

Having been active for over a decade, Switzerland’s Schammasch have been working on the fringes of black metal creating an artistic character that speaks for itself, through its own identity. Triangle (2016) was a three-disc opus that saw them invited to Roadburn Festival before releasing an EP based on the surreal works of the Comte de Lautréamont and the band reaching into ambient and ritualistic territory. Their latest effort, the critically acclaimed Hearts of no Light (2019), shows the band in their darkest, rawest, and most honest angle.
