Biography:
Aghast was a two-witches (Nebelhexë and Nachtexe) and one album (“Hexerei Im Zwielichet Der Finsternis”) project, which despite receiving good reviews was not enough to keep the band alive.

His music is essentially atmospheric, terrifying, minimalist, based on synthesizers and pianos with very discrete drums input. As a curiosity, Nebelhexë was married to Samoth from Emperor and Natchexe with Fenriz of Darkthrone. Also curious is to note that the voices in their only released album were recorded with a mic that belonged to Dead, of Mayhem.

After splitting up Andrea, who has also sung in some Cradle Of Filth album, entered her folk era with Hagalaz ‘Runedance, comprising from 1996 to 2002 and releasing three albums. In this period she published her first book “The Ancient Fires of Midgard”, which brings us to the ancient Germanic religion and teaches us how to use and interpret the magic runes.

Since 2004, Andrea went into darkwave gothic music under the name of Nebelhexë.

Lineup:
Andrea “Nebelhexë” Haugen

Stockholm all female quartet APHRODITE would provide an early career stepping stone for musicians that subsequently came to the fore with the hard hitting DRAIN STH. The original lineup underwent many direction changes in both musical and image. Guitarist Flavia Canel and drummer Martina Axén have been together in many acts starting with Punk band LIVIN' SACRIFICE. As this act progressed the sound developed into more of a Hard Rock vein, consequently changing titles to APHRODITE in 1985. They had the song "Playing With Fire" featured on the compilation 'Sommarrock 85', followed up with an eponymous mini-album in 1986.
