The unholy initiation of Artep was unleashed upon this earth as a solo project in the frozen mountains of Northern BC in 2005. Artep, while dwelling in the dismal lands of desolation, created a series of haunting melodies and sinister lyrics which would bring forth the misanthropy we know as Artep today. After a long search, finally in spring 2007, Artep found drummer Lord Goatesque, who joined Artep as a session drummer/ vocalist. Summer 2007 Artep's demo 'Fires of Mortal Deception' was delivered. Fall 2008 new album was recorded at Artep studios and mastered by Andy Laroque (King Diamond). The result is the promo 'Black War' and the full length album 'Thy Will Be Done on Earth As Is Done In Hell'. Artep is already working on a new album which will be available sometime this winter or spring 2009 and will also be releasing an album with some early recordings soon after. Artep's horde is forming and their fiery shows will plague this earth without warning.
