-=HISTORY=-

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
South-Korean Hammerheart Productions.
 
So the 1st cd "Heirs Of The Northstar" was released in the late winter 1995.
This "Cold Northern BlackMetal" -feeling on the demotapes changed to
majestic and atmospheric heathen art.
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 battle album.
 
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 2nd demo"DAG".
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 members
(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...
