Judas Iscariot was an American black metal band, originally called Heidegger, formed in 1992 as a solo project of Andrew Harris, who performed under the pseudonym "Akhenaten" (after the Egyptian Pharaoh of the same name). However, with the release of Heaven in Flames (1999), Duane Timlin (aka Cryptic Winter) joined the band as a session drummer. From 1999 to 2000, Akhenaten twice performed live with a line-up featuring members from Nargaroth, Krieg, Absu, and Maniac Butcher.
As is common for the genre, themes often directed against religion and explored a fascination with nihilistic philosophy.
After relocating to Germany, Akhenaten announced the demise of Judas Iscariot on August 25, 2002. Intentionally or not, this date coincided with the 102nd anniversary of the death of German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, whose work was cited as important to the ideological foundations of Judas Iscariot.
As the band's name implies, Akhenaten's stated goal was to spread anti-Christian blasphemy...
