Biography

Athínai, Greece (2007 – present)

Curently there are two bands with this name:
1) A melodic death metal band from Sweden (formed in 2005)
2) A melodic death/thrash metal band from Greece (formed in 2007)

——
1)
Descending were formed from the former members of the band Scenskräck (Stagefright) in the summer of 2005. The lineup back then was Rickard Apelstav on leadguitar, Anders Lundvall on the rythmguitar aswell as Alexandra Andersson on the drums. The same Summer the bassplayer Michael Skalenius joined the band aswell as a temporary vocalist who after a few months chosed to quit.

In the Autumn the same year the band creative spirit was nearly to none and all energy was focused on finding a new vocalist and several were tried but no one was fit for the role. But in November Kristofer Boström joined the crew and his crude, though strong voice were going to change the music of Descending forever.

In the Spring of 2006 the next hard blow struck the band when their drummer Alexandra announced that she was moving to the US for a year and the search for a new drummer began, resulting in a temporary drummer by the name Rasti. Though to personal reasons he was forced to leave the band in the Summer and his place was filled by Simon Zachrisson, a experienced black-metal drummer and old friend of Kristofer.

In the Autumn the band recorded their first EP, End of Eternity, which was to represent the future sound of Descending. Thouh so far not developed entirely. The EP was, due to lack of studio time, not exactly what the band had hoped for but all good for a first record with two relativly new members in Simon and Kristofer.
