The Norwegian band started out in 1990 as a death metal band called Green Carnation
, but with the main composer and guitarist Tchort
leaving the band in favour of Emperor (2)
, the remaining members formed In the Woods... They began playing atmospheric black metal, but in 1997 (Omnio), their sound evolved into progressive/avant-garde metal.The band released a total of four studio albums, three singles and one compilation album throughout its initial existence, before disbanding in 2000. However, before quitting, they registered a live performance (Live At The Caledonien Hall) that took place on 29th December 2000 in their hometown Kristiansand, capturing a three hour retrospective of the entire band's career.
In June 2014 the core-members A. Kobro, X-Botteri and C:M. Botteri decided it was time to continue the band where it was left off back in year 2000.
