Year Formed


Dissecting, slicing and recombining the musical DNA of extreme Metal, OTARGOS  achieves exactly the right balance between industrial coldness and powerful fierce metal attacks.

Founded in 2001, in France, and fast gaining in live experience, OTARGOS started following the course of traditional Black Metal.Not content to walk on trodden paths, the band explored new musical and lyrical horizons on their albums "Ten-Eyed Nemesis" (2005) & "Kinetic Zero" (2007), which plunge destructive sonic outbursts into the total chaos of matter, time and space.

OTARGOS bases its philosophy on cosmology and a dark antitheistic vision of humanity and future. 

"Fuck God-Disease Process" (2009) and "No God – No Satan" (2010) albums evoke a quantum leap on every level from songwriting via originality to sound. OTARGOS will make you stare into the pitch black abyss of cosmic finitude with a sardonic smile...

Actually a "live" band OTARGOS performed a lot of shows and tours since the beginning. Several tours in France, Europe (with Watain & Destroyer666, Dark Funeral, Svart Crown...) and south America (Brazil).

Now, Joining forces with LISTENABLE RECORDS, 2013 is the year of the 5th album titled « APEX TERROR »More heavy & death metal... more modern and powerful, Simply the best OTARGOS album ever.

Upcoming with fresh visual aethetism and thematics, OTARGOS enters a new era of dark extreme metal....
