Ophiuchi is a band from Pretoria, South Africa. Its membership consists of one anatomically-modern human male.
By cleverly exploiting a variety of prehensile appendages, Ophiuchi arranges the sonics found in doom, sludge, black metal and folk music into a classically-derived, movement-based format.
Influences include Portal, Blut Aus Nord, Tool, King Crimson and Yob.
A debut LP, titled Bifurcaria Bifurcata, was released digitally on April 10th, 2017. The latter half of 2017 will see a limited vinyl pressing of a dedicated vinyl master.
