Azaghal

Profile:
Azaghal was formed in 1995 by the hands of guitarist Narqath and drummer Kalma (later known as VRTX & V-KHAOZ). Vocalist Varjoherra joined the band in 1997 and the bands first demo(untitled) was recorded late 1997/early 1998. In March 1998 they made a second demo, "Noituuden Torni", which was recorded at the Cursed studio. It also featured most of the tracks from their first demo, but this time with a better sound. This was also the only album that they used synths on. Although not a band specifically tolkiean black metal, it has strong influence of J.R.R. Tolkien as in the names of his albums and the name of the band itself refers to a character created by the writer, Azaghâl Di Belegost.

Same year, they entered the Cursed Studio again to record their third recording, "Kristinusko Liekeissä". During the recording they also made material for their 7" EP, "Harmagedon". Both recordings were released in 1999 and the EP quickly sold out (500 copies).

Their first full-length album, "Mustamaa", was released in summer 1999 by Melancholy Promotion. It was originally released as a limited vinyl, but later it was re-released as a cd. After the release, the band had already enough material for a second album, and they immediately said yes when Evil Hordes Records offered them a deal. Once again they entered the Cursed Studio to record the second album, "Helvetin Yhdeksän Piiriä", in December 1999.

In 2000 they released their second full-length "Helvetin Yhdeksän Piiriä". They also did a split with the band Mustan Kuun Lapset, but due to a bad label (Nocturnal Music), the split turned out unprofessional. It also became very hard to obtain these days. Later the same year, Millenium Metal/Solistitium contacted the band and wanted to re-release the bands demos on a limited cd. They accepted and soon all 900 copies were quickly sold out. The band decided to do business with the same label again and did a split with a spanish band called Beheaded Lamb. The split was released in early 2001 and surprisingly, it sold out.

Their tracks from the two splits were later put on a limited vinyl and released by Blut & Eisen. The vinyl was called "Ihmisviha". The same year, JL Nokturnal joined the band as lead guitarist and together they released their third full-length album, "Of Beasts and Vultures" in spring 2002. After the recording, founding member and drummer Kalma left the band.

In early 2002 the band released another 7" called "Helwettiläinen". It was followed by splits, a MCD entitled "Kyy" and another album, "Perkeleen Luoma", in 2004.
