Biography

Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal (1992 – 2001, 2003 – present)

Heavenwood is gothic/doom metal band from Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal, and it was originally formed as a death metal band under the monicker Disgorged in 1992. In 1995 tragedy struck the band as their current bass player committed suicide. They signed a record deal with the German label Massacre Records and their name changed to Heavenwood and released two albums.

“Diva” was promoted with two European tours, the first in the end of 1996 with Atrocity and In Flames and the second one in the spring of 1997 together with Theatre Of Tragedy and Lake Of Tears. They also played with bands such as Cradle Of Filth and Moonspell between others in their home country. In 1997 DIVA was released in the Japanese market through MARQUEE BELLE EPOQUE Records with some extras.

Their second album “Swallow” released in 1998 features guest appearances from Theatre Of Tragedy’s female vocalist Liv Kristine and Gamma Ray’s mastermind Kai Hansen. 1998 was the year for the first Portugese Metal act on the famous WACKEN OPEN AIR FESTIVAL playing for a full WET STAGE with fans from all over the world followed by more European Tours with bands such as Atrocity, Solitude Aeturnus, Saviour Machine and more. HEAVENWOOD would be considered Band sensation in many important Metal Magazines such as METAL HAMMER, ROCK HARD and a 4 in 5 in TERRORIZER Magazine was ” a gift ” for the Portugese newcomers effort in the music scene.
