Информация о группе
In 1999, Jens, Vincent, Bart and his brother Johan formed a band called ‘Spinal Chill’ with Jens on guitar, Bart on bass, Vincent on drum and Johan handling the mic. At the time the music style was a kind of primitive death metal and they managed to record a demo called ‘Demonic’, but luckily for the public, it’s no longer available!
Just after the inauguration of the new millennium, a line-up change took place, with guitarist Kevin joining the band and Johan, who wasn’t working out musically (and personally) leaving Spinal Chill. He was replaced by Niklaas and soon after the group decided to change its name to Lemuria.
With the combined song writing talents of Jens and Vincent, the band’s sound evolved into a kind of black heavy metal with folky riffs and this is still what it sounds like today. After a year of officially playing under the alias of Lemuria, the band recorded their first ‘serious’ demo in the Cavern Studios in Antwerp in April 2002.
The CD was called ‘The Vault of the Witness’ and was praised by metalheads and non-metalheads alike, despite the relatively poor quality of the recording. During the summer of that same year, the band’s webmaster Siegfried was officially made the 6th member, taking up his post as keyboard player and in November the first gig as the new Lemuria was a fact.
Unfortunately, during the spring of 2003, Lemuria was forced to replace Kevin with Pascal, a previously unknown and inexperienced guitarist for professional reasons.
And so the path was set: During next one and a half years or so, the band continued to evolve and expand horizons. Fusing heavy and black metal with folk melodies and an epic atmosphere, Lemuria has created a unique sound for Flanders.
After a lengthy recording- and mixing process during the summer and autumn of 2004, ‘Tales, Ale & Fire’, the band’s second CD was released upon the world in February 2005. Once again the disc was received well and the group did some promotional performances during the following months. The quest has only just begun….
