Symphony of Heaven is a symphonic blackened death metal project based out of Owensville, Indiana in the United States.[1] Formed in 2016 officially by Logan Thompson, he debuted with a track on a compilation by The Bearded Dragon Productions. Thompson later became known as "Pathos" and continued the project with himself going under the aforementioned moniker.[2]

History Edit

The project began in 2017, as an unnamed project led by Logan Thompson. On February 3, 2017, the project debuted under the name of Symphony of Heaven with a compilation released by The Bearded Dragon Productions, with the track "Anno Domini [Instrumental]".[3] A week later, the project released their single, "Stratagem", his sophomore single and debut with vocals.[4] The single was followed by a lyric video.[4][5] On May 30, 2017, the project released Of Scars and Soil, his debut release.[6][7][8]

Symphony of Heaven released their lyric video for "...Of Scars and Soil" in June 2017.[9][10] The same week, the project appeared on another compilation released by The Bearded Dragon Productions, titled Metal From the Dragon (Vol. 1).[3] Only a month later, the project, alongside Children of Wrath, signed to Nosral Recordings.[11]

In November, the band released "In Anger's Midst", their debut single off the upcoming album The Season of Death and announced the pre-orders.[12][13][14] On November 24, 2017, Symphony of Heaven released their debut album, The Season of Death via Nosral Recordings.[15] On August 12, 2018, Thompson announced he would be acting under the moniker of "Pathos" in the project.[2] The project is currently working on a black metal split with Timōrātus and Bismoth.[16][17] On October 19, 2018, Pathos announced that Nagrash Sargoth of Gesel would be joining the project as a session member on the upcoming black metal split.[18] On December 3, 2018, the project released another cover song by Horde, alongside Ruah of Ascending King taking over Vocals.[19]

On February 18, 2019, it was announced the project would be performing at Audiofeed Festival in 2019 and that the project was no longer a solo project, but a band in the vein of European acts. The lineup officially added Nagrash Sargoth, Timoratus of the same band, Ruah of Ascending King, and Asaph of Mystic Winter. However, on June 16, 2019, Ruah was forced to withdraw from the band due to a medical emergency. On June 22, the band announced their newest addition with Eero Tertsunen (Renascent, The Slave Eye, Angel of Sodom) on Bass. The band performed at Audiofeed and would go perform another show in Evansville in 2019. The band would sign with Rottweiler Records and release a single, "You Shall Be As Gods", on January 1, 2020.[20] The band would perform in January 2020, opening for Signs of the Swarm, Inferni, Brand of Sacrifice, and Shadow of Intent. In August 2020, the band released their debut music video for the track "DeathMarch", announcing the new EP, The Ascension of Extinction, which was set to be released on September 4, 2020.[21] In September, the band released their debut EP, The Ascension of Extinction, which was well-received.[22][23][24]
