Limbonic Art - Biography




1993: Limbonic Art was formed, and existed for a short period of time with a four-member line-up. Daemon, who is the inventor of Limbonic Art, and the only original member, met with Morfeus when the old line-up went separate ways, and a new project was born.

Daemon and Morfeus became the Limbonic Art we know today:

Daemon: Lead vocal, guitars, and nocturnal poetry
Morfeus: Electronics, lead guitars, and additional vocals

1995: The band recorded and released a rehearsal tape containing four tracks of symphonic Black Metal.

1996: A new rehearsal tape was developed, this time five tracks in the same musical vein. Nocturnal Art Prod. became interested, and offered a deal after a hearing of the two rehearsal tapes. A contract was made in the spring 1996, and an official promo tape was released by NAP shortly after.

In the autumn the band recorded and released their now well-known debut album "Moon in the Scorpio", which led to great recognition in the extreme metal scene worldwide.

1997 - 2001: After three other albums, 1998's "Epitome Of Illusions" and "In Abhorrence Dementia" and 1999's "Ad Noctum - Dynasty Of Death", Limbonic Art were then seen as one of the best new bands to come out of the Norwegian extreme metal scene in a long time.

The band had been given great reviews and great media attention in general in major metal/gothic press worldwide.

2001 - 2003: Unfortunately, 2002's "The Ultimate Death Worship" was Limbonic Art's last studio album since Daemon and Morfeus parted ways in February 2003.

In February 2007, the band posts the following message on their MySpace page:
"Symphonic Black Metal masters Limbonic Art return from the dead! 06.06.06 the two members, Daemon and Morfeus, decided to bring back the dark powerful entity Limbonic Art. Since then a new album has been written and recorded. The band has re-signed with Nocturnal Art Prod/Candlelight Records, and the comeback album, "Legacy Of Evil", is set for release summer 2007. Limbonic Art strike back with full force, more intense and malevolent than ever. This is a well-crafted Black Metal massacre, with heart and soul!"
