Apokrypha is a Melodic Black Metal band from Germany - founded under the name "To The Seven" in Würzburg back in 1999. At that time the band developed a concept in which name and lyrics have their origin. The basic idea was created by the drummer who writes most lyrics. At first the vocalist's position was a problem but after unsuccessful search one guitarist makes the decisive move to do the vocals besides his instrument. The first gig was played at a festival in Würzburg in summer 2001. Meanwhile, the band has done more than 50 Gigs and represents a great status in Franconia.
