Taken from their offical website

'Apparition were formed in January 2004 but the bands roots goback to 1997 when as Asphyxiator they wrote and recorded the song ‘The Pain Lives On’. This song was a departure from their usual death metal style. Dave, the writer of the song and bass guitarist, wanted to start a melodic rock band. However this was not possible as singer Rebecca had moved away from the West Midlands area and the rest of the band just wanted to keep ‘The Pain Lives On’ as a one off experimental track. Asphyxiator later split in 1998.

Then on New Years Eve 2003, whilst checking out a notice board in his local music store, Dave saw an advert put up by Jen, a local girl offering her vocal talents and keyboard/piano skills. Dave contacted her and after meeting they both knew that something special had been formed.

After forming a few ideas and building the basis of a few songs Paul, drummer from past band Asphyxiator, agreed to join Apparition. After then building on the ideas developed by Dave and Jen, Apparition sought a new vocalist and guitarist. After much time searching they welcomed Annabelle and Rich to join the band.

Apparition signed to casket/copro records in January 2006 and their album called "Drowned in questions" was released in April 2006.'

Some changes to the lineup have happened since this bio was written. Jen has left the band, & was replaced by Fiona Creaby, ex Liquid Sky on vocals & Ian Bentley on keys.

Also, in Nov 2006, Annabelle also left the band, making Fiona the lead vocalist.
