Sympathy hails from Saskatchewan Canada. About 10 years ago, Dharok initiated Sympathy with three friends. Two years later, after recording a short demo and a full length album together, the band slowly started to fall apart due to a lack of commitment on the part of all the players. So Dharok started to play all the instruments himself. Between the years of 1993 and 1997, Dharok recorded two full length albums and a demo own his own, Arrogance and Ignorance (1993), Age of Darkness (1995), and Realms of Choas (1996, remixed in 1997).

In 2001, Dharok reinitiated Sympathy and recorded ‘Invocation’ at Port Trax Studios. The album was the first that Sympathy had recorded in 5 years. And in early 2002, the Dutch metal label, Fear Dark, decided to release ‘Invocation’. The disc has been a new beginning for Sympathy and truly marks the beginning of the band’s future.

Fast, furious and ferocious, Sympathy churns out its own unique style of Death Metal with sickening aggression. Huge walls of thick crunching guitars, coupled with the soaringsounds of synths give Sympathy's music a hauntingly surreal quality that mixes the sinister with the saintly, the malignant with the majestic, and the hellish with the heavenly.

Influenced by such acts as early Morbid Angel and Suffocation, Sympathy adapts the styles of these bands to fit a more modern sound. Sympathy's sound, often compared to artists as diverse as Dimmu Borgir and Hate Eternal, combines the aggression of Thrash, the brutality of Death Metal, and the abrasiveness of Black Metal.
