It may sound like an exotic Italian topping for your pizza, but, in fact, Avichi is the band moniker of one-man black metal wrecking crew Aamonael -- cursed denizen of darkest Dekalb, IL. Despite the apparent discomforts of his hooded black cloak, Aamonael still managed to handle all instruments and vocals when recording Avichi's world-eating first opus, 2007's The Divine Tragedy (looking only to Matt "Xaphar" Block to provide hellfire percussion). All kidding aside, the album contains commendably high-caliber American black metal, and bodes well for Avichi's future.
