Christopher Stropoli aka “Oricuss” – Thy Antichrist – Desolation – Drum Play-through

Christopher Stropoli has been drumming for Thy Antichrist since 2015. He is based out of Orlando, Florida and has been working with local bands including Sons of Ragnar.

Thy Antichrist is an existentialist black metal band showcasing extreme elements that have been making tidal waves in the underground metal community since 1998 and has been building an important fan base around the world.

In 2016, these US-based Black Metallers found a home with the reputable Extreme Management Group, as well as joined the roster of well-known booking agency, Continental Concerts. With a stout history and commanding presence, Thy Antichrist has tremendous potential for further growth going with the recent worldwide signing with Napalm Records. The band and label are preparing to release the forthcoming album titled “Wrath of the Beast,“ February 23rd.

This video is Christopher Stropoli playing Desolation, by Thy Antichrist. See Thy Antichrist on tour across North America supporting Septic Flesh and Dark Funeral, February, and March of 2018.
