Avrigus are a 2 piece doom band from Sydney, Australia. The band is comprised of Simon Gruer (ex-Cruciform) and Judy Chiara. The band plays epic and majestic doom metal unlike anything heard before. Avrigus first came into existence in 1990. Due to Simon's role in Cruciform and the Sydney metal scene it wasnt until 1998 that the very well received EP The Final Wish was released on Warhead Records. In 2001 the LP The Secret Kingdom was released on Well of Urd Records, a division of the now-defunct Hammerheart Records.AVRIGUS GENRES
