Hailing from Ciudad Juarez México, the band was formed in 2003. Mixing influences of Gothenburg metal and Finnish Melodic Metal, the band sought to create a unique style of Melodic Death Metal by incorporating these elements with Pre-Hispanic themes.
In 2005, the band was invited to be part of a compilation album titled “JuariTODOS CONTRA LA VIOLENCIA” (trans. Juarez Against Violence).
In 2007 the band returned to the recording studio to work on their first EP. The album was finished by the end of 2008 and was titled “Novus Orsa” (trans. New Beginning). In 2009 the band won the Mexican edition of W:O:A's Metal Battle competition against 44 other bands, thus earning a spot in world-renowned Wacken Open Air festival in 2010.
After the band's excursion in Europe, back in Mexico, they begin to write new music for the band's 1st full length album to be titled “Ix.” The album comes to fruition in early 2013, including 9 tracks. In an effort to further promote "Ix" in 2014 the band undertakes a nationwide tour in Mexico alongside Colorado's Thrash Metal band HAVOK, hitting all of the biggest cities in Mexico as well as annual Metal festivals. Finishing the tour, the band goes through new line-up changes, this time adding keyboards to the mix.
In 2016, the single “Embodying My Misery” is released along with a lyric video to promote the song.
In 2017, the band gets invited to play on the 6th edition of MetalDays festival in Tolmin, Slovenia.
In 2018, they release another single entitled “Void Delusion”, and a playthrough video is made to promote it. Later that year, they perform at MetalDays, on the New Forces Stage. After their performance, the band gets invited to play again next year, this time in one of the main stages of the festival.
Early in 2019, the writting process for their next album begins, planned to be released that same year. Having plans to return to MetalDays for the second time, they take the opportunity to add more shows on their trip, and thus the “Void of Misery Tour” was made, playing through different cities in Poland. Currently, the band is putting the finishing touches of their upcoming album..
