PenitenziagitePenitenziagite started out in 2004 under a different lineup and an even more diverse style. Its first active members were Anže Demšar(guitar/vocals), Matej Ovsenek(Bass/vocals), Bojan Netretič(guitar) and Fertin(Drums). Their style of black/death metal was well known for their diverse double vocals.
With that lineup, Penitenziagite self-produced their first garage demo. Soon after that, Penitenziagite parted with their drummer, who was replaced by Gašper Čebulj, which started a new chapter for the band.
At this time their style also started changing from black/death metal to more pure death metal with the legacy of the past influences.
Shows soon started and Penitenziagite was greatly accepted in Slovenia and the feedback was excellent. By the end of 2007, Matej left the band and was replaced by Aljo(Scaffold) on the bass guitar. After the replacement, they recorded their second demo The New Evolution. The style of music settled in death metal and remains so to this day.
The band played around various clubs as opening band or as headliner. They played with bands like: Kampfar, Demonical, Milking the Goat Machine, Obliteration, Noctiferia, … They also played on big festivals like Metal camp (twice, once on the main stage) and Metal mania – also twice.
After two more member changes - Matic Di Batista joined the band on Bass and Žan Kavčič took over lead guitar, the band started to prepare the material for their debut album.
Studio sessions and mastering of their debut album was finished in 2014. Songs on the record are brutal combination of the work that Penitenziagite produced during the years. Album brings out the message of delusion humanity reached, expressed with brutal vocals, angry rhythms and fast and diverse riffs that help create the atmosphere of destructive state humanity was pushed in.
