Biography

Canberra, Australia (1999 – present)

Myrddraal is an Australian black metal band from Canberra, Australia. Formed in 1999 by Hellpitt and Surt, Myrddraal play old style harsh, hateful and atmospheric black metal.

Autumn that year saw the release of the ‘Black Construction’ demo: four hymns of evil black metal. A positive response to the demo led to Hellpitt and Surt recruiting a full lineup, with which the band played a number of successful shows. After witnessing such utter carnage on stage, Bavarian label At War Records invited Myrddraal to appear on a split release with German warmonger Gernoth. ‘Cold Moon Over Kaltenberg’ was recorded in May 2000 and released in October the same year, receiving some very positive reviews from around the world and selling all 200 copies in just a matter of months.

At the end of 2000, Myrddraal were offered the opportunity to release their debut full length CD through the then fledgling Sydney based label Decius Productions. Released in May 2001, ‘Blood On The Mountain’ has received an unparalleled response from around the world, with its seamless blend of aggressive black metal, ripping thrash riffs and haunting acoustic passages. In October 2001, Myrddraal played a devastating set at Metal For The Brain. At about the same time, Myrddraal unleashed a three-track promo CD-R, ‘Promo 2001’, limited to only 25 copies. These tracks demonstrated Myrddraal?s excellent song writing prowess and attracted an overwhelmingly positive response from all who heard them.

    Falling Sky rates amongst the best in my opinion

    Blood on the Mountain is a bit boring, never could sop it full, but Falling Sky therefore is strenuous, excellent.

    Haven't listened to Blood on the Mountain for years - I think it starts out rather generic, but boy does this get better in the latter half of the album.

    Definitely inactive/dead/gone/history/finished. A shame though...

    M-A says they're still active. I'm going with that.

    Anyone knows if this band is still active? I've got a few sources saying that they're dead.

    I just recently got in to this band... and I'm wondering if they're still active? Their website hasn't been updated for a few years.
