Carpathian Forest is a Norwegian black metal band formed by Nattefrost and Nordavind in 1990. Since the release of the band's now-legendary Bloodlust & Perversion demo in 1992 and the Journey through the Cold Moors of Svarttjern promo of 1993, Carpathian Forest have gained a cult status in the Norwegian black metal scene.
Carpathian Forest are unique among black metal bands in that their usual lyrical themes deal with not only satanism, evil, anti-christianity, etc. but sadism, sexual depravity, suicide, and other morbid subjects in addition to usual black metal themes.
The band has completed work on their new album, Fuck You All!, due June 16, 2006 and are preparing for a worldwide tour.
