Barathrum is a Finnish black-doom band, formed in 1990. The first letters of their eight full-length albums spell "HEIL SOVA" - referring to the band's frontman, Demonos Sova. Their music is stylistically similar to early black metal acts such as Venom and Celtic Frost. Their lyrics deal with occult and religious themes.
