Founded in 2000 as Maggotcunt before changing their name in 2002, Debauchery was formed by the current vocalist, guitarist and bass guitarist Thomas Gurrath and the former drummer Dani.
Debauchery is a German death metal band from Stuttgart.
The band's themes are mainly war and death, often involving the fictional god Khorne from the science fiction universe Warhammer 40,000 and its followers.
Gurrath was formerly a philosophy teacher at a Stuttgart high school until his role in Debauchery was discovered in May 2010. He was given the choice between keeping his teaching job or his band, and chose the latter.
