Lamashtu

Swedish symphonic doom metal

The Goddess of malformation!

Lamashtu is the mother and patroness of many misshapen and malformed creatures. Her unholy symbol is a three-eyed jackal head, which may be represented in many ways. She is a mighty demon lord who became the first such entity to achieve true godhood. By defeating Curchanus, she ripped his godly domain over beasts from him, beginning an ancient vendetta with Curchanus' protégée, Desna. This imbued the demoness with a small amount of his divine power.

Lamashtu is presented as a symphonic doom metal band. Founded in Gothenburg Sweden in 2015, originally introduced as a stage personality and during the summer of 2015, her story and music was finally Lamashtu told.
The music for the album Fallna Själar was put assembled in only one month. The Album's creators worked together and had decided that bass was a big part of her sound. It was also important to create something truly spectacular. In some sense the idea for the music had already been formed back in 2011.

Lamashtu was eventually joined by more demons to form the sound that defines her. In the end, she manages a force of nine demons, strong in mind and spirit - all in their unique ways. Together, they sing about the dark matters that adresses their powers and divinity individually, to call for the attention of mortals in need of strentgh, passion and purpose.

The reign of Lamashtu is being foretold.
