Formed in 2006, Father Befouled play unholy and desolate death metal. After some demo tracks online garnered interest, an EP, Profano ad Regnum was released in 2008 and the band began playing regional shows in the US. A full length, Obscurus Nex Cultus quickly followed and after more shows and a couple of split releases, the band signed to Relapse Records for the release of Morbid Destitution of Covenant in 2010. The band laid low for a couple of years before playing the inaugural Martyrdoom Festival in New York in 2012, which coincided with the release of their third full length, Revulsion of Seraphic Grace on Dark Descent Records. 2015 saw the release of Enthroning Desolation – a compilation of demo, split, live, and rare tracks – and a short tour of the East Coast. In 2017 the band headlined the Blood of the Wolf Festival in Lexington, Kentucky, as well as a performance at Maryland Deathfest to celebrate the release of their fourth album Desolate Gods. The band embarked on their first European tour in May of 2019, releasing an EP, Holy Rotten Blood, and capping off with a performance at the Netherlands Deathfest. 2022 will see the release of their 5th album, Crowned in Veneficum, a 9-song paean to the poisonous raptures of death metal and unholy blasphemy. A 2022 European tour is in the works with a stop at the now-twice postponed Killtown Deathfest in Copenhagen, Denmark.
