Pest is a Norwegian black metal vocalist, mainly known for his work in the Norwegian black metal band Gorgoroth.


Pest was one of the founding members of the Norwegian symphonic black metal band Obtained Enslavement, which was formed in Stord, Norway, in 1989. Obtained Enslavement released two demos in 1992 and 1993 before their first full-length album, "Centuries of Sorrow", was released in 1994. [ [ METAL ARCHIVES Obtained Enslavement] ]

In 1995, Pest was approached by Infernus of Gorgoroth with an offer to join Gorgoroth as their new vocalist, after the previous vocalist Hat had decided to leave the band. Pest performed his first concert with Gorgoroth in December 1995, supporting Cradle of Filth at the London Astoria, and provided the vocals for the song "Possessed (by Satan)" on the bands sophomore album, "Antichrist", released in 1996. Gorgoroth went on a European tour with Satyricon and Dissection in April 1996 [] , followed by one-off gigs in Bergen, Norway and in Bischofswerda, Germany. Pest provided all the vocals on Gorgoroth's third full-length album, "Under the Sign of Hell", which was recorded in spring 1996 and released in 1997. Obtained Enslavement, with Pest still on vocals, released their second full-length album, "Witchcraft", the same year. Gorgoroth went on their first headlining European tour in fall 1997 [ [ MYSTIC CIRCLE Biography] ] , after which Pest decided to leave the band to concentrate on his work in Obtained Enslavement. He did, however, contribute lyrics and vocals to several tracks on Gorgoroth's 1998 album, "Destroyer.

Obtained Enslavement released two more albums in 1998 and 2000. The band then decided to split up, since Pest would be moving to the US. Obtained Enslavement with Pest on vocals performed their last live performance in Bergen in June 2000, at the first Hole in the Sky festival.

Since moving to the US, Pest has been involved in a couple of US black metal bands, most notably as a vocalist on the forthcoming Blood Stained Dusk album, "Black Faith Inquisition". [ [ BLABBERMOUTH.NET] ] [ [ BLABBERMOUTH.NET - BLOOD STAINED DUSK: New Tracks Posted Online ] ]
