Sargeist is a Finnish black metal band formed in 1999. Originally created as a solo project by Shatraug of the Finnish black metal act Horna, he was joined by other members since 2000, who were subsequently released from the band. After the demo recording Tyranny Returns (2001), the line-up was augmented by Hoath Torog and Horns, both from the Finnish black metal outfit Behexen, and this line-up remained stable until 2016.
Both musically and lyrically, Sargeist stays close to the roots of Scandinavian “old school” black metal. Lyrical subjects thus often deal with Satanism and anti-Christian blasphemy, as well as darkness, depression, misanthropy and hate. The band’s name combines the two German words, “sarg” (coffin) and “geist” (spirit, ghost), and derives from the song “The Old Coffin Spirit” by the black metal band Rotting Christ. All members go by pseudonyms.
