Saturnus is a Death/Doom metal band (with Gothic motives), which was formed in 1991 in Denmark. In 1991 the lead vocalist Thomas A.G Jensen was looking for band members to start the band Assesino (which changed to Saturnus in 1993) and he found the bass player Brian Hansen, who had the same purpose. During those years, a number of musicians played and left the band.

Their songs are mostly about sorrow, death, loss and in other words, the songs represent the dark melancholic atmosphere. They sing with 3 different vocals: Clean, growl and recitation. Their first recorded album was “Paradise Belongs to you” which was released on December 12, 1996. 20 years already they created a dark masterpiece, which took place in the hurts of doom metal lovers.
