Vesperian Sorrow United States
Vesperian Sorrow is a symphonic black metal band from Austin, Texas founded in 1994. They were known as Unholy Descent until they changed their name to Vesperian Sorrow in early 1997. Their lyrics tend to be less extreme than most black metal bands that cover themes of Satanism and Anti-Christianity. They cover instead; the cosmos, sorrow, sadness and darkness. Their name, Vesperian Sorrow, directly references this and translates to; "sadness or sorrow in the evening hours."
