Band Information

Descend to Acheron was formed in 2014 in Adelaide by Andy Kite and Peter Clarke from In the Burial. The EP was written and recorded shortly after they departed that band, with Dave Haley from Psycroptic playing drums. After the band's full line-up was established in 2019 with Kieran Murray from Truth Corroded, Dave Hawkins from Kite's other band Maniacal and Matthew Phillips (Omnium Gatherum, Deaths Boundaries, Imminent Psychosis), the EP was finally released in April 2020. Phillips committed suicide on February 10, 2021.

Pahl Hodgson joined the band to replace Phillips and in mid-2022 they appeared at Blacken Open Air.
