- The band was formed in the
spring 1993 originally under name Virgin's Cunt.
- The first demo called
"Reborn In The Promethean Flame" -demo '93
- was mainly recorded for
their own pleasure
- and only a few copies were
spread, but it got attention from some people
- and that gave kick to
develope things further.
- The 2nd demo "Dark
Aureoles Gathering" was recorded in the winter 1994
- and band's name was changed
to Darkwoods My Betrothed.
- That demo was received very
well in the underground scene
- and some months later it
led to a recordingdeal with
- So the 1st cd "Heirs
Of The Northstar" was released in the late winter
- This "Cold Northern
BlackMetal" -feeling on the demotapes changed to
- majestic and atmospheric
- Some "drunken
viking"-style clean singing was added
- and the whole concept
became more epic.
- But fast songs weren't
forgotten and variety continued on the next album
- "Autumn Roars
Thunder", released by German Solistitium Records
in the spring 1996.
- Raw BlackMetal and
atmospheric, epic hymns was the recipe of this pagan
- But on
"Witch-hunts" Darkwoods My Betrothed attacks
grimmer than ever!!!
- Epic stuff is gone for good
and grim, majestic BlackMetal rules again.
- As a result of several
coincidences the releasing date of the album
- was delayed almost a year
from originally planned,
- but not some great
developement happened that time and not the least
- meaningful is that the
album is finally released by Spinefarm recordsÉ
- Band's line-up has been
unchanged since the early days,
- except bassist
Hexenmeister's departure in the summer 1996.
- He still continues
co-operation with band by writing the lyrics.
- Band has played only two
gigs on it's very early days
- and maybe some day in the
future this inferno will happen again
- In 1999 Cryonics
asked DMB if they'd be intrested in re-release of DMB's
- DMB replied some time later
that they're intrested,
- both parties agreed to also
include the bands 1st demo the contracts were signed.
- In the spring of 2000 DMB
has started the rehearsals of next album with some new
- (synth player, bass player
and drummer) and one line-up change
- (former session drummer has
changed to his main instrument, guitar).
- Many people have been
anxious to see DMB on stage and now that dream
- shared by the band is
nearer than ever to come true...
