Pitchblack was formed in 2002
and, five years later, their “Designed To Dislike” made quite an impact in the Danish and European extreme metal scenes. That same year the band was awarded with the Metal debut album of the year by MTV’s Danish Metal Awards.
Fast forward to 2010, and “The Devilty”, their second effort, continued the same path, even featuring Mercyful Fate’s Hank Sherman as guest in one of the solos of the album. The reactions to this record were of extremes: the cover artwork was banned in Germany for being too gore, but the festival promoters did take notice too, and soon Pitchblack was stepping in stages of events such as Download Festival (UK) or Copenhell (DK).
