Formed on the West Coast in 1993,  THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA quickly became a name synonymous with violence, hatred and fear. Their sound blends the genres of death, black and thrash metal, adding the unrelenting barbarism of hardcore with the “fuck off” attitude of classic punk rock.

THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA instantly stood out in extreme music scenes for creating their unique sound and style whilst living nomadic lives of crime. In fact, to protect the identity of its membership, who were constantly in legal trouble, THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA chose to perform in pitch-black rooms and forgo ever placing any traditional band line up list or photos on releases. This also kept the band shrouded in mystery. Thematically, the band routinely espouses epithets of warfare, drug addiction, anti-establishment and anti-religious themes.

Members of THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA have also performed in bands such as Bludgeon, Sangraal, M.F.T.S., Witch-Lord, Discreet Doll Band, Devil, Penetration Panthers, Witch-Cat, Lesser Key, Parallel Hells and many more. All of those bands, as well as THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA, have been staunchly independent and will continue to stay independent.
