GNOSIS

The audial chaos emanated by the cult known under the name, Ptahil is not from Earth. They are the sound of illumination through gnosticism. Heavy Metal charged with adversarial ritual and spirituality penetrating into the depths of the planetary crust and projecting liberation beyond the cosmos’ limit.


PTAHIL (pronounced Fetahil) came into existence in 2009 when J. Mhaghnuis recorded the 18 minute epic “Dies Iræ! Dies Illa! Solvet Sæclum In Favilla!” The sprawling, malefic majesty was featured in the first official release - the Ortus EP. Another recording titled, “Anti-Flesh Existence” followed shortly after, which contributed ambient ritual elements that would become integrated in the groundwork of all future output emerging from the Cult.

In 2010, D. Luathca joins as the second member of the cult. Shortly thereafter, PTAHIL enters the studio to record “The Black Fire” demo. The “May She Destroy The Cosmos, Drunk On The Blood Of All Life” single is recorded within the same time frame and released to the world.


PTAHIL records their debut full-length album, “For His Satanic Majesty’s Glory” originally released threw Wraith Productions. Upon completion, it is unleashed into existence upon a wretched, unsuspecting world on November 14th 2011.


In March 2012, PTAHIL embarked on a mini tour leading to Texas where they share the stage with Teratism and Bahimiron. Following that gathering, writing and recording finishes with the 2nd full-length entitled, “The Almighty Propagator of Doom and Despair”, which was released on 12/21/2012 once again on Wraith Productions.


In August 2012, PTAHIL performs at the first annual Sleaze Fest with Mausoleum, Midnight, and The Mentors. During that year, the cult also completed another recording to become their eventual 3rd full-length release, entitled, “Born Against”.


In 2013, Joker Lokison joins the cult on Bass Guitar and PTAHIL begins their renewed live assaults as a trio.
Demo tracking begins for the 4th full-length recording of the Death Cult, entitled “PanDaemonAeon”.
PTAHIL performed live several times in 2013 and in November, a successful seven date North Eastern US & Canadian Tour was embarked upon by the trio.

In 2014, PTAHIL’s third full-length recording, “Born Against” is unleashed through Arctic Music.


PTAHIL enter the Ensomberroom Studios in early 2015 to begin laying down basic tracks for their fourth full-length recording, “Pan-Daemon-Aeon”. This marks not only the first recorded output with Joker Lokison in the fold, but the inclusion of Moog Synth and Theremin into the sound of the cult. Both serve to further expand the sonic capacities of their invoked audio rituals.


In June, PTAHIL performed at the 11th annual installment of Destroying Texas Fest.
In December 2015, PTAHIL enter Temple Studios to finish vocals and begin mixing for “Pan-Daemon-Aeon”. That work was pressed by Ars Magna Recordings on CD in early 2017.


In early 2018, Atolinga Rex in cooperation with Inhumar Label release a best of compilation of PTAHIL material.
Titled, "Beast of...", the limited collectors release included 9 fan picked songs, 4 new exclusive songs and a re-recording of the bands classic, "Fuck This World".
