The Band

ANTIPOPE is a Finnish metal band founded in 2004. Since the first moments of their existence, ANTIPOPE has walked their own paths following rules made by no one. Their musical roots lie in the dark and grandious soil of black metal and classic heavy metal. Wherever ANTIPOPE's musical experimentation has taken them, soaring double guitar melodies and blastbeats have been a time tested weapon of choice to convey their blasphemous message. Over their releases, ANTIPOPE has incorporated elements ranging from the 70s' prog and heavy metal to death metal, doom metal and industrial metal into their music presenting seamless yet always with unexpectedness and norm-defying intent.
