Anwyl was a black / death metal band from Kansas formed in the late nineties, lasting until possibly 2004. The members hailed from Hutchinson, Independence, and Wichita, KS. In or around 1990 Blaspheroth formed Wichita death metal act Corpus Delecti, which Mikai later joined. The duo then formed Xaphan in 1997 which eventually became Anwyl. In the mid-90's Mikai Tepesh conjured several cassette only releases under the aliases Nephilim, Enkil, and Epitaph which even spanned as far back as 1988. After releasing a cd on American label NCM, Anwyl had a 7" and LP released by End All Life and Drakkar respectively, but the band fell apart before a second album (rumored to have actually been finished and slated for release on Osmose Productions) could surface. Sadly Krom passed away in 2011. Mikai currently plays drums in Hutchinson based death metal band Murder Ordained which for a time also featured ex-Anwyl member Olc.
