Anael was formed in 1999 by Primeumathon (drums) and Seraphackh (guitar/vocals). Their first gig was in May 2000 as a twopiece. Their first demo, "Into The Dark", was recorded in September 2000 at "Rape Of Harmonies" studio. Amauroptavir was recruited to play bass.

In September 2001 they recorded a Split 7" with Buried God, called "Eye Of The Sleepless", which was released in March 2002 by Hatespawn Inc. Also in September 2001, they recorded the "Infernal Devotion" EP, which was released in March 2002 by Sombre Records. Melechtonior took over the bass for Amauroptavir for some live gigs in 2002. In late 2002, Angel Of Doom took over the bass for Melechtonior, and the band entered the studio in December 2002.

Their Debut album, "Necromantic Rituals", was released in March 2003 by Barbarian Wrath. Also in March 2003, they released the "Your Pain Is My Lust/Hope Is A Bitch" split with Lust on the Iron Tyrant label. More live gigs followed.

In 2004, Angel Of Doom left, so SM Daemon replaced him on bass, and Incarnator (guitar) joined the band. In October/November 2004, they participated in the Samhain Celebration Tour with Abigail, Eminenz and Morrigan. Incarnator left the band after this tour.

The band entered the studio again in early 2005 to record their second full-length, "On Wings Of Mercury", which was released in September 2005 by Barbarian Wrath.
