Hailing from Austin, Texas, the germ of what would eventually become TRIACANTHOS first grew roots in 2013 when drummer and then-vocalist Lord Frost began collaborating with Imazapyr on guitar. Together, they refined and honed their sound over several years, resulting in one EP released on Red River Family and a single show to the original lineup's credit in February 2019. Things continued to take shape and form with the addition of Thornicator on bass and lead vocals shortly thereafter. They forged ahead as a three-piece, sharing the stage with such acts as Horna, Vale, Master, and Black Vice. After much delay and false starts, the trio completed their full-length debut, Apotheosis.
