Black Atmosphere was formed in 1991 in Los Angeles, CA. by Xstoph Gladis. Strictly starting as a recording project. As a few previous project including - Christian Death, The Dream, Legion, and Black Cow, jaded his live performance and outlook on the music industry. Sure enough theatrical instincts in Xstoph's life took over and soon Black Atmosphere ventured out as a live act, combining theatrics with a psychedelic / glam-gothic appearance and musical structure. The band raised much interest within the hollywood circuit.
