Baptism is a black metal band from Finland. The band was formed in 1998 by vocalist/guitarist Lord Sargofagian and drummer Demonium. The summer of that year the band released their first demo, Satanic Rituals, although very few copies were released. Following a two year hiatus the band released their second demo, Sons of Ruin & Terror, in 2000. Similar to the last demo the release was limited. After the addition of bassist Slaughterer the band released their first full length album, The Beherial Midnight, on June 12, 2002. 2004 would see three releases, from the band, a split CD with Uncreation's Dawn and the EPs Wisdom & Hate and Black Ceremony. The band released their second full length album in 2005 entitled Morbid wings of Sathanas. Currently Slaughterer and Demonium have left the band leaving Lord Sargofagian as the only official member.
