history of the thrash/blackmetal band IRDORATH
starts in 2005. Markus (guitar) and three other
musicians founded the band, the first demo
"Erwachen" and the first album "Götterdämmerung"
(Label Black Lava Records) were recorded and the
first gigs were played. During the following
years some personal changes happened. From this
time on Thomas plays the drums and Esche
performs on the rhythmguitar.
The second album "Dekonstrukteur des
Fleisches" was recorded at Soundtempel
Studio and produced by Stefan Traunmüller.
After finishing the record the singer and the
bassplayer left the band, so that there was
place for Markus to take over the vocal parts
and Mario to join as the new bass player. Since
then the lineup is stronger than it ever was
before and the band proved their power
successfully on stage only one a few weeks later.
Furthermore, the german record label Massacre
Records became interested and signed the band.
The Album "Dekonstrukteur des Fleisches"
was released worldwide through Massacre Records
in January 2012 and Irdorath were playing lots
of concerts that year.
Apart from performing live, Irdorath had lots of
ideas for new songs. A new set was born and so
Thomas started recording the drums at Stage One
Studio in Germany November 2012. After that was
finished, the recording of the guitars, bass
guitar and the vocals took place once more at
the Soundtempel Studio. The new record, which is
called „I Am Risen“, was finally mixed and
mastered by Andy Classen at the Stage One
Studio. The artwork and booklet design was done
by the hand of Jan Yrlund from Darkgrove
Graphics Studio, who is known for great designs
for bands like Manowar, Legion Of The Damned or
After "I Am Risen" was recorded the
band decided that the time for some changes had
come and chose to cooperate with the Austrian
Label Noisehead Records!
Meanwhile Irdorath back on stage playing gigs
and festivals to gain more and more attention.
