The band was initially formed in 1984 by singer/bassist Nocturnal Grave... and drummer 3 Black Hearts..., but it isn't until 1986 that the band is officially knighted Blasphemy. A demo called Blood Upon The Altar was then recorded at Fiasco Bros. Studios in 1989.
The Canadian outfit known as Blasphemy was formed in 1984 in Burnaby, BC.. They are known for creating a small sub-genre known as “war metal”. Each member does not go by their real name, but use ‘’ritual’‘-style titles instead. Blasphemy is considered a black metal band, and while the guitar riffs/solos and blast beat drumming certainly fit the black metal mold, the vocals have a more death metal edge to them, similar to Von or Sarcófago.
