Psychrist was a death metal from Canberra that formed in 1992. The first version of the band was a three-piece featuring Matt Coffey, Yuri Ward and Dan Marsden. This line-up scored a support with Morbid Angel but broke up sometime later.
With James Simper on drums and Eddie Telfor on second guitar a new Psychrist line-up supported Pungent Stench. Telfor was shortly replaced by Matt Keele and Psychrist recorded The Abysmal Fiend. After this Kel Dulihanty joined as vocalist.
Embrace Rapture in Disgust was recorded in 1996 but personnel issues and problems with the artwork (that was eventually used on a Grenade 7” release) delayed release. After 1997's Metal for the Brain appearance Keele, Dulihanty and Simper split from the band, while Yuri Ward joined Armoured Angel as guitarist and singer. By mid 1998 the line-up of Ward, Marsden, Roger Stachow, Wes Roth and Nathan Youngberg had come together. Stachow and Youngberg were drawn from fellow Canberra deathsters Dying Embers. Blazejak replaced Stachow in early 1999.
Embrace Rapture in Disgust was finally released in February 2000 and the band did a national tour with Encabulos and Deluge. Around the same time, Ward and Blazejak also began playing in Lord Kaos. Debauching the Minions was released in mid-2002 and the band supported Destruction a short time later. Blazejak left the band in late 2003 and Psychrist subsequently folded.
