Formed in London 2006 by Shadow Venger & Cyclonis Niyil-ka. The band more or less begun as a studio only project with Venger providing the music and Niyil-ka the lyrics & vocals. There was some early assistance from drummer Devastator & bassist Wraith. These 4 were in a previous band together, Stand Aside.

The band self released 2 Singles - "Chaos Torrent" (2006) and "The Destroyer" (2007) with an album already recorded. The band decided to form a live line-up before releasing the album and toured the UK at the end of the year with live session players Nordrus (rhythm guitars) and Rzryx (drums). With play on over 100 radio stations worldwide, the EPs sold out quickly and the band were voted No.1 Unsigned Band and joint 7th best overall newcomer in Terrorizer magazines end of year readers polls (2007). Shadow Venger and Nordrus decided to leave the band in late 2007 before the album was released.

In 2008, the band went on to play 3 high profile shows, Bloodstock festival (w/ Iced Earth, Dimmu Borgir), Winterfest (w/ Amon Amarth) and a London show supporting Hecate Enthroned.

From 2009 the band struggled with line-up problems before finally ending in 2010 having never released anything else beside the initial singles.

In 2014, original guitarist Shadow Venger decided to bring the band back in order to finally get the album released. Please visit the new empyreal destroyer facebook page
