There are and have been several bands named Gehenna, the most notorious of which are the following:Read More...
1) A black metal band from Norway.
2) A blackened hardcore band from Reno, Nevada, USA (also known as THE INFAMOUS... GEHENNA)
1) A black metal band that was formed in Stavanger, Norway in January 1993 as a nameless project by Sanrabb, Dolgar and Sir Vereda. They didn’t give the band a name until they had enough material which would represent their voice. In May of the same year, the trio entered the studio to record a demo. Sanrabb and Dolgar shared the duty of guitars, vocals, bass and synth, while Sir Vereda took his seat behind the drum set.
The demo was recorded between the 3rd and 7th of June 1993 in Soundsuite Studios. It was released under the name “Black Seared Heart” as a tape limited to 100 copies.
Gehenna participated in the Darkthrone tribute “Darkthrone Holy Darkthrone”, released by Moonfog Productions in 1998, covering the song “Transilvanian Hunger”. Later, in 2001, the band also participated in the Mayhem tribute “Originators of the Northern Darkness: A Tribute to Mayhem”, released by Avantgarde Music, covering the song “Cursed In Eternity”.
After several years of inactivity, the band returned with "WW" in 2005, heralding a much welcomed return to their black metal roots.
Eight years later, in 2013, Gehenna released Unravel.

- LyricsWhere the wind blows I am
Where the wind blows I will always be
In the pale shadow
The voices around me
Screams in my soul and heart
- LyricsCrossing the channel of fire
The wings of the dragon shall carry me high
The sky so dark and cold
Known only to the spirits that grew old
We rush towards th ravenclaws
- Lyricsfrom the east
a thundering roar is heard
struck by fear
as the time draws near,
- Lyricsa thousand killings
a thousand first times to die
death is closing in from all sides
we don't care who lives or dies
the truth be known in a world of lies
- LyricsThis night is silent, I set the world ou of its track
until only ashes circle around the moon
Close your eyes, follow me blindly
Goddess let my ice cold semen of gods flow through
Your only prayer...
