Biography

Fabian Filiks was born in February 1984 in Rybnik, Poland. In his childhood years, Fabian studied classical piano. He later learned to play the guitar and started writing music. It wasn’t until the release of “Withering Hopes” in 2006, Fabian’s debut dark ambient album, that he decided to begin his music “career”.

A few years later, Fabian (aka. Moloch) formed Zørormr – an extreme metal project and probably his best-known act up to date. Inspired by the Norwegian second wave of black metal, Zørormr released its debut album “Kval” in 2009. With the help of Polish musicians Przemysław Olbryt (lead guitar) and Łukasz Sarnacki (drums), the project has released three full-length albums and one EP, with a new record planned to be out later in 2022. Fabian has also worked with guest musicians like Mike Wead (King Diamond / Mercyful Fate), Cezar (Christ Agony), and Shadow (Black Altar). He also collaborated with Polish top music producers, Arek “Malta” Malczewski (Behemoth) and Arkadiusz “Aro” Jabłoński (Masachist).

In 2018 Fabian started performing live with his darksynth / synthwave project Moloch, later transformed into Doctor Visor. Apart from two big tours in Poland, he played at Castle Party Festival, Soundrive Festival, and Hoym Fest. He also supported Perturbator twice in Gdańsk and Warszawa.

Another landmark in Fabian’s musical “career” was the release of “Vertigo” (2021), a dark jazz album inspired by Hitchock’s movie under the same name. In 2022 Fabian recorded a musical homage (an anty-symphony) for Mariupol & it’s people and donated the income to humanitarian aid for Ukraine. His latest creation, the “Nocturnal Avenue” EP, is set to premiere later in 2022.

Nowadays, Fabian is working on at least four new records to be released in 2022 & 2023. He also intends to return to the stage and perform with various projects starting from the Fall of 2022.
