SCHAMMASCH

Located in Basel, Switzerland, Schammasch was formed in 2009.’Schammasch’ being Šamaš, the sun god from Akkadian / Babylonian mythology.)

With little attention to the question of genre from their inception, the band regarded their actual body of work as what is most artistically significant; although their roots can be found in forward-thinking black metal whilst balancing a razor sharp hybrid of dark atmospherics, doom and Hermetic mysticism.

After a year of carefully crafting their art, Schammasch released their first album „Sic Lvceat Lvx“ on an underground  Swiss Black Metal label and unveiled their live show alongside international extreme metal acts like Jex Thoth, Temple of Baal, Vorkreist, Evoken and Forgotten Tomb. Their ambitious debut garnered considerable praise from many corners of the  extreme music world, in print and online. Legacy magazine in Germany quoted : „On a work of art like this one, there’s only one recommendation: goeth and buyeth and you shall not regret it! 14/15“

As the first Swiss band to join the Prosthetic roster, Schammasch release their second opus „Contradiction“ as a double album in 2014, which was recorded and produced by none other than Tripkyton / ex-Celtic Frost guitarist V. Santura. A sprawling, epic work over 85 minutes, presented with the majestic arkwork of artist Valnoir of the Metastazis Studio in Paris (Paradise Lost, Alcest, Ulver.)

 

Contradiction“ is a truly commanding work of significant importance, both to extreme music in 2014 and to the rich heritage of forward thinking Swiss metal in general.
