Current Version (version 100, 26 Feb 2015, 12:16)
Immensity was formed in the beginning of 2009 in Athens Greece by Andreas Kelekis (Guitars/Synth).
In Fall 2010 Leonidas Hatzimihalis (ex Fatal Morgana, Equal Vector, Agnosia) took over the vocal duties. In the meantime new material was written.
In the beginning of 2011 Drummer Yiannis Filippaios (Decemberance, Daylight Misery, ex- Ritual of the Black sun ) became the next official member.
Bass player Giorgos Kritharis (also in Fortress Under Siege) and guitarist Christos Markopoulos came in together with Maria Zvyagina keyboards (ex Wine from Tears ) to complete the picture.
Musically influences are drawn from artists like Daylight dies, Katatonia, November’s Doom, Before The Rain, My Dying Bride, earlier Anathema, Paradise Lost, Yearning,earlier The Gathering, Opeth, Green Carnation, Ahab, Isole, While Heaven Wept, Swallow The Sun, Primordial, Godgory, Falloch just to name merely a few, basically moving into Atmospheric Doom/ Funeral/Death Metal, Progressive waters and inspiration literally from everywhere, but following its own path and frame of mind, whether it’s metal or beyond terms the main goal is to evolve, maintain “immense” but also emotional and innovative as possible.The band recorded a 2 song Promotional demo,produced by Kimon Zeliotis and Immensity.
"The lonely Aquarelle" which was finally released in spring 2012, received excellent feedback
throughout the metal media (including 'zines,sites and blogs)
but the peak was to claim the title as #1 new band in “Clandestine cut of the year 2012 “ in Demo category by the known "Metal Storm" Webzine.
The line-up at the time consisted of Leo (vocals) Andreas (guitars & keyboards)
John (Drums and percussion),
Chris (guitars), George (Bass) and Maria (keyboards and synths)
Year 2011-2014 :
Around 2013 and after the overall success and well received demo "the lonely aquarelle"
Maria left the band due to personal and musical differences.After a period of seeking for her replacement, Chryssa Kourenta was found and a period of isolation and new songwriting had begun,.
In the Autumn of 2013 Immensity appeared for the very first time live in Athens after accepting an invitation from local band Daylight misery (where drummer John also contributes) and British Doom act Pantheist in addition of introducing new material
but at the same time preparing the recordings for the band’s debut album which took place in a period between late 2013 and
reaching completion in the beginning of Summer 2014.
Once again Produced by Kimon Zeliotis and Immensity.
The main plan was to release 5 brand new songs yet along with the two tracks from "The lonely aquarelle" re-mixed and re-mastered

from the band's “Splendid Isolation” during the period of recordings.
