1) Penumbra ( band)
Formed in Paris, France in 1996. Their lyrics are themed toward love, angels, witches, death, and emotions.

1996 - Creation of the band

The band was founded rather by chance, while visiting a concert one day in 1996 Dorian (guitars) met Jarlaath (vocals) and soon after they had known each other they found themselves philosophizing about metal in general and in particular. They realized that they had very much in common regarding their musical ideas.

Both of them took the view that there were too many bands around sounding all more or less the same but not enough of them using classical music influences.

So it happened that they arranged a rehearsal together with a soprano and a synthesizer. Jarlaath also played the oboe. This rehearsal went so outrageously fine that they decided without the slightest hesitation to leave their bands and to found Penumbra (at this point they called themselves “Imperatoria”).

1997 - Recording of the first demo and Concert in Paris with Misanthrope
Around November 1996, Imperatoria split up and Jarlaath together with Dorian and Herr Rikk formed Penumbra with three other musicians.
