Biography :


PSILOCYBE LARVAE was formed in January of 1996 in Vyborg. Having gone through several major line-up changes during the bands existence, the only person who remained in the band is the permanent leader Vitaly Belobritsky.

After the first demo "Liar" Psilocybe Larvae entered into professional studio in 2007 where the song called "Death Is Not the End" was recorded for "Russian Alternative Extreme Music" compilation released in 1998.
In summer of 2000 the band recorded a full-length album called "Stigmata" and released it in demo format. In December German "Legacy" magazine called "Stigmata" demo of the month. A year later "Stigmata" was released by Black Side productions on CD.

In autumn of 2002 PL took part in a Russian tribute to Manowar with a song "Blood Of The Kings" and recorded the song “Karma Of The World” for tribute to Chimera (Russian hardcore cult band). But the main event of 2002 was the recording of band’s second album called "Agony". In the beginning of 2003 the album was released by Black Side Productions.

In 2005 both albums were re-released by one of the biggest labels in Russia called CD-Maximum. Albums were re-mastered at Remasters Studio by Mike Hall and included bonus tracks. At the same time the situation inside the band was going from bad to worse for many reasons and the band were forced to relocate to St.Petersburg. After many troubles the band got a new bassist and a keyboardist and at last the line-up was completed. So we’ve turned the new page of our life.

After a Ukrainian tour in autumn of 2006 the band entered DDT Records for the 3rd album recording in January, 2007. New album called "Non-existence" was mixed at Studio Hertz (Poland) and mastered at Cutting Room (Sweden). It was released in February of 2008 in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus via Moscow label Mazzar/Mystic Empire. In March the band headlined Russian tour to support new album and took part in Creative Breath of Death tour of Belarus.

In 2009 Psilocybe Larvae have signed a deal with Dark Harvest Records for the "Non-existence" worldwide release.

After two years of intensive work Russian metallers returned with a brand new album called “The Labyrinth Of Penumbra” and are extremely proud to present their creation to the world - a new chapter of the story is just about to begin...
