There's some speculation and rumor that front-man Mary Goore is also Papa Emeritus I/II of popular psych rock band, Ghost. This speculation stems from some documentation that was found listing Mary Goore as being a lyrical contributor on the band's eponymous debut.
Johan Wallin ran the (Now defunct) label/distro Escorbuto Recordings.
The band was formed by Mary Goore in June 1998. Members joined and left until the final line-up in October 2002 recorded their one and only album "Epitome Of Darkness". Repugnant was officially put to rest in April 2004. They reunited to play the Black Mass Ritual Festival III, September 30-October 2, 2010 in Helsinki and Hell's Pleasure 2010 Festival.
