History

This band was formed as Endless in 1992. It was not until 1998 that a stable line-up was achieved however. A debut demo was recorded in September, 1999 at NSR Studio. The demo was called A Path To Heaven. The demo was a winner of the month in the French edition of the Rock Hard Magazine.

Alkemyst recorded its Meeting In The Mist in 2001. Earlier the Frenchmen had recruited a singer from Italian hard rockers, Secret Sphere. Unfortunately, most of the recordings were accidentally erased and lost at the studio. The Frenchmen had no choice, but to re-record the material a year later. Following the recording the band set out to land a recording contract. A CD was sent out to Nuclear Blast Records, which quickly offered the band a contract. The Japanese version of the album preceded the international version by a month and featured an extra song. Alkemyst was also heard at the same time on the Metal Dreams Volume 5 sampler CD.

The group called it quit officially in 2014, but that in itself came after an inactive period. The group duly returned in 2016. Arnaud Ménard was also singing.
