Yevhen Hapon (Ukrainian: Євген Гапон), also spelt Eugeny Gapon and Ievgen Gapon, better known by his stage name Knjaz Varggoth, is one of the foremost figures in Eastern Europe black metal.[1] Though he has been involved with numerous music projects and bands (Mistigo Varggoth Darkestra, Lucifugum (as a guest musician in 1997), Вече), he is most well known for being the lead vocalist and guitarist for the Ukrainian black metal band Nokturnal Mortum.

Nokturnal Mortum gained their reputation performing symphonic black metal with elements of Ukrainian and Slavic folk music.

Another side project done by Varggoth is Mistigo Varggoth Darkestra, an ambient/black metal project formed in 1994. The most famous album of this project, The Key To The Gates Of The Apocalypse, is most likely known particularly due to its long runtime (one 72-minute track) and combination of dark ambient and fast black metal.

In autumn of 2014 in order to avoid rumors concerning his personal views and band ideology Varggoth published the statement declaring that he and Nokturnal Mortum was out of politics.[2]
