  Summary  

Shagrath is a Norwegian musician best known as the vocalist of Dimmu Borgir.

  Biography  

Stian Thoresen was born on November 18, 1976 in Jessheim, outside of Oslo, Norway.

Shagrath is one of the founding members of Dimmu Borgir, along with Silenoz and Tjodalv. Shagrath's change from playing guitar to vocals is a part of what changed the band's sound. His contributions extend into the use of keyboards, bass guitar, and drums; as can be heard on For All Tid. Since the departure of Mustis in 2009, Shagrath returned to the keyboards during the recording of Abrahadabra, but is once again only the vocalist with the addition of Gerlioz to the band's touring line-up.

Shagrath also played guitar and drums in Fimbulwinter until the band split up in 1994. Fimbulwinter released one album, Servants of Sorcery, through Hot Records in the year of 1994. Shagrath also played keyboards in another Norwegian black metal band called Ragnarok. Another unknown band was Starkness, a solo project of Shagrath. He is also the rhythm guitarist of the heavy metal band Chrome Division.

Shagrath also sports extensive tattoo work. This work includes the word Shagrath across his stomach, various arm tattoos which cover his arms as well as extend to his upper chest.

In late 2009, Shagrath joined forces with King and formed the band Ov Hell. In February 2010 the band released their first album entitled "The Underworld Regime".
