Choronzon are an American black metal band, formed in 1986. They take their name from the demon Choronzon and are up-front about their occult influences. In 1998, they were signed to the Nocturnal Art Productions, owned by Samoth (of Emperor and Zyklon). Their debut album was ‘’Magog Agog’‘.
The music is based in black metal, and extends to post-black metal and industrial, incorporating both organic sounds and techno-filtration. This band, along with Mysticum from Norway were one of the earliest examples of this mixing of black metal and industrial. The later works tend to be less rock-oriented and more experimental.
