Formed in Parma, Italy, in 2010 by the three brothers Bones; Dorian, Henry and Tony and by the eccentric drummer Mike De Chirico.
Caronte's sound was conceived as an heavy acid doom metal, their songs are inspired by drugs, alcohol abuse, death, black masses, sex, esoterism and misticism.
First release came in 2011 with a three tracks Ep called "Ghost Owl", followed after one year by their first full-length "Ascension", released both by LO-FI CREATURES, the independent label of the singer Dorian.
2013 was the year of the split album with the doom metal band DOOMRAISER, released by LO-FI CREATURES and BLOOD ROCK RECORDS and of the first european tour that has seen CARONTE to play throughout Europe.
The good feedbacks received have permitted at the band to share the stage with bands like Electirc Wizard, Blood Farmers, Cough, Forgotten Tomb, The Devil's Blood, In Solitude, Pagan Altar, Doomraiser, Jarboe, OM, Angel Witch, Grand Magus, Orange Goblin, The Secret, Ufomammut and Abysmal Grief.
At the end of 2013 Caronte has received the compliments by FENRIZ with a great review on his page "Band of the Week".
Now the band is ready to release their new album for the german label VAN RECORDS.
The new album will be called "CHURCH OF THE SHAMANIC GOETIA" and will be a true esoteric trip through 7 tracks that describe the journey of an adept at this new esoteric/philosophical current theorized by the band.
