Blacklodge is an industrial black metal band from France, founded in 1998 by Saint Vincent in Grenoble. The band's name is taken from a fictional place, the Black Lodge, from the serie Twin Peaks by David Lynch[1]

History[edit]

Early years and Login:Satan (1998-2005)[edit]

The band was created in 1998 by Saint Vincent. The band's influences are Mysticum and Dodheimsgard, though Saint Vincent names the German band Traumatic Voyage as one of his main influences.[2]

They played their first live gig in Grenoble as openers for Impaled Nazarene. In 2004 they toured with Aborym and Corpus Christii.

Solarkult (2005-2010)[edit]

A new era started for the band with their cooperation with Tore Stjerna from the Necromorbus Studio, where they recorded their album Solarkult. With this opus they signed with the French underground label End All Life. In 2007, Silence left the band and was replaced by Narcotic before their European tour with the bands Horna and Vorkreist

T/ME (2010-2012)[edit]

A collaboration with the Austrian band Abigor gave birth to a split album. T/ME, 3rd level Initiation : Chamber of Downfall was released by End All Life.

Machination (2012-present)[edit]

The band signed with Season of Mist in 2012.[3]
