The band began in late 1995, when drummer Matthias and guitarist Sathonys got together to assemble a black metal band. They put adverts at several music magazines in the hopes that they would find suitable musicians to play with them. In answer to the advertisement, they were joined by bassist Marko Thomas and keyboardist and vocalist Vlad Dracul. The last member of their initial formation was the second guitarist, Hyperion, who joined them by the end of that year. With this formation the band recorded the Carpe Noctem demo tape, which received fair reviews from the German specialized press. It also attracted the attention of one of Century Media's executivies, who began keeping track of the band.

Agathodaimon then proceeded to play minor gigs and support some european bands. Eventually, they received an offer from Century Media to fund the recording of their second demo. This demo was recorded in

AGATHODAIMON Higher Art of Rebellion

The next album in line for the Goth band Agathodaimon. Their debut, "Blacken The Angel" was a pretty solid black metal relase with some nice varity in it. Hoping for the same in this album, I was kind of taken by surprise.

This album is a little more strait-forward. They have kind of lost the varied approach and simplified things into a pretty boring album. The varity on their debut album worked well for them and it puzzles me why they would wander away from that. The song writing doesn't seem put together too well and it suffers from some "let's throw an album together" syndrome that doesn't help any bands reputation. The links to "Blacken The Angel" are still there however, the guitar riffing is basically the same without alot of changes and there still are the symphonic pieces thrown in the mix, but it just doesn't all flow the way it should. It's one of those albums you do a term paper to, becuase you can actually get through the whole thing that way. Get "Blacken The Angel" instead, and avoid this one.

If you want Goth metal, Agathodaimon can deliver. They aren't fast, they aren't loud, but what you will find with this band is some nice atmospheric metal that is pretty good in places. They form a sense of atmosphere well on this album, which can be a challenge for any band to do well. The vocals have a kind of rasp/thrash sound to them (sound like COF in places), and they integrate well with nicely written and put together guitar riffs that show some thrash roots in the mix as well as some black roots. The two make pretty good music when put together, and they even throw some keyboards into the music as well for that added little push. This album seems to vary a lot, with one second being a thrash album, then the next second it will be a symphonic and atmospheric part that slows the song down a lot. The songs are a little lenghty, but they seldomly get boring, which is a big plus considering I can't stand songs that are long and repeat the same things over and over. You get atmosphere, black metal, and some thrash in places, what more could you want? This album is heavier and more interesting than "Higher Art Of Rebellion" and should be checked out at least once.
