Biography

The band changed their name to Blackguard, This page will no longer be updated

Profugus Mortis was a black/avantgarde/folk metal band from Montreal, Quebec (Canada). Profugus Mortis was originaly formed in November 2001 by Terry, Justine and Alkin. They were, at that time, influenced by the genre. Having auditionned numbers of different people for the bassist spot, they found out Mordred (bass), Aegis (guitar) and Keleos (keyboardist) which fitted perfectly with the style that the band was playing at that time. In August 2003, soon before their first show with local headlining band Obscurcis Romancia, Aegis was forced to leave and was replaced by a talented violonist called Emily. After a month of intense practice with Emily they reshaped all the songs for the show and the music went to another level. Now armed with their original , the band took on the stage for the first time and received great reviews from the underground metal scene. Soon after the show, Keleos left the band for personnal reasons and was replaced by Jonathan who’s power metal likings influenced the band. After doing a headlining show with Morphose, the band hit studio to record a one piece promo cd entitled United Under A Shadowed Nightsky with Yan-André Chenier.

After this first studio experience, the band was ready to make some more shows. They shared the stage with many local bands including Unexpect, Blinded By Faith, Magister Dixit, Moonlyght, Howling Syn, Liva, and many more. Around august 2004, Alkin was considered more of a problem within the band and it was decided that he should leave the band.
