Biography

Germany (1994 – present)

Over the years the German outfit DARK FORTRESS have established themselves in the top ranks of the genre with intense live shows and fascinating, pitch black full-length masterpieces. Hailing from Landshut since 1994, they have released six studio albums, a split album and a demo album.

Their first musical sign of life was the 1996 released demo “Rebirth Of The Dark Age” which as a matter of fact was the hour of birth of a soon to become truly dark and mesmerizing band. In 1997 the original line-up consisting of band founder Asvargr (guitar), vocalist Azathoth, Njord on bass, drummer Charon established the band’s first live line-up with the addition of a second guitarist named Crom and keyboardist Thamuz. Debuting live in February 1997 the young horde soon shared the stage with such underground figureheads as Lunar Aurora, Desaster and Nagelfar. Dark Fortress’ first label release was the Split MCD with Barad Dür entitled “Towards Immortaliy” which featured two new tracks by the band and was released on Fog Of The Apocalypse Records. A third track was recorded during the same session and was used for the compilation CD “From The Mystic Forest - Part II”. The band kept busy composing material for the first full-length, but a studio date already scheduled for 1998 did not come into being and the recording did not take place until August 2000 when Dark Fortress entered Klangschmiede Studio E and with Markus Stock (of Empyrium fame) behind the knobs completed one of the strongest melodic yet viciously aggressive black/death metal debuts ever to emerge from Germany: “Tales From Eternal Dusk”.
