Torsten, vocalist of the German black metal institution Nocte Obducta, had started AGRYPNIE a long time ago, initially as a haven for his own song ideas. After the brief breakup of Nocte Obducta, AGRYPNIE evolved from a solo project into a full-fledged band. With albums like "F51.4", "Exit", "16[485]" or the double opus "Grenzgaenger/Pavor Nocturnus" AGRYPNIE consequently developed further and manifested their very own niche in the wide field of Black Metal.
