About Twilight

Not a supergroup so much as an American black metal summit gathering, the Twilight project brings together some of the major players in the most extreme faction of this most extreme of genres. Specifically, here you'll find Leviathan and Lurker of Chalice mastermind Wrest, Malefic of Xasthur, Imperial of Krieg, Azentrius of Nachtmystium, and Hildolf of Draguar -- all of them multi-instrumentalists normally given to working in solitude. This rogue's gallery of malevolent metal talent brought their might to bear for their self-titled 2005 debut, Twilight. The band disbanded briefly in 2008, with Malefic and Hildolf leaving the band, but re-formed in 2009 with a new class of post-metal luminaries stepping in to fill the void. Bolstered by the addition of Isis' Aaron Turner, the Atlas Moth's Stavros Giannopoulos, and Minsk's Sanford Parker, the band set to work on new material, eventually releasing its second album, Monument to Time End, through Southern Lord in 2010. Two years later, the unstoppable talent-collecting juggernaut announced that none other than Thurston Moore would be joining the band. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia & Gregory Heaney
