Abigor (1993) is an Austrian black metal band formed by P.K. and T.T.. After the release of several demos, original vocalist Tharen left the band and was replaced by Silenius, who recorded vocals for all Abigor releases until the recording of Channeling the Quintessence of Satan during which he opted to leave the band. Thurisaz, who has been in the Thrash Metal band Lost Victim together with T.T. in the 80s, joined the band and finished recordings on Channeling the Quintessence of Satan. In late 1999, T. T. left the band for various reasons (ranging from personal problems to being fed up with what once was the "scene"). After his departure, Abigor released two more albums before breaking up in 2003.
In April 2006, P.K. and T.T. decided to join forces again. The band currently is recording new material.
Early works by Abigor were loosely inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.
