AZARATH was formed in October 1998 by Inferno, Bruno and D. The first recordings were: “Traitors” demo and Promo’2000. The band played many shows and later – already with Bart (Damnation) who filled the line-up – they recorded debut album “DEMON SEED” in Hertz Studio. Album contains 10 songs of terrifying brutal death metal, aggressive, dirty and sinister. With no doubt it’s one of the most extremely death metal albums. The band got great response and reviews and also invitation from VADER for Polish part of REVELATIONS TOUR 2002.
During last days of August 2003 the band recorded second album „INFERNAL BLASTING“ in Hendrix Studio. This album got even more fuckin’ great reviews than the debut one. After recording session of “Infernal Blasting” D. left the band because of personal reasons. The band found the second guitarist – Trufel from Yattering – and with him in line-up started to promote new album. In June 2006 (Hendrix Studio) and then in August 2006 (Hertz Studio) Azarath recorded 10 tracks for the third album “Diabolic Impious Evil”, which was released on 16th of September and from that day Azarath started Polish part of Blitzkrieg 4 tour supporting Vader together with Vesania and Trauma. In October 2008 AZARATH signed new deal with Agonia Records upon release of their 4th studio album „Praise The Beast“ as standard CD, LP and limited digi with bonus track. The same time the band signed DEATHGASM RECORDS for standard CD release for North America territory. The band played some festivals then – Inferno Fest ,Oslo in April, Devilstone Fest Lithuania in June and PartySan Fest, Germany in August 2009. Further, during eleven days of September/October 2009 Azarath (together with Hermh and Black River) supported BEHEMOTH on their Polish “Evangelion tour”.
After the tour Bruno (voc/bass) decided to leave the band and focus on his private life. The band continues with NECROSODOM (Anima Damnata, ex-Thunderbolt,ex-Throneum) as new bass player and vocalist. In the end of 2010 Azarath signed Witching Hour Productions for upcoming releases. Recording session of fifth album took place in January and February in Hertz Studio where Wiesławscy Bros were responsible for production, mixing and mastering duties. Yet untitled full-length album will be released on 6th of June 2011 by Witching Hour Productions. Earlier, on 10th April 2011 Witching Hour will first release EP ‘Holy Possession’ consisting of title track and cover of ‘Rebel Souls’ by Damnation. In January 2011 Azarath underwent some personal changes. The band split up with Thrufel and Necrosodom (vocals) took over guitar duties. Bass duties are now handled by P.
