Basque-based Dormanth was formed in 1993 featuring two former folk rock band Elbereth members and already had a record out by 1995. The band initially featured another Elbereth member on guitar, namely Maciej Zienkiewicz. The band mixed thrash, doom and heavy metal and the drummer’s consequent band would give a hint as to the sound. The Sadness demo was recorded in February of 1994. The band could also be heard on the Shadows In The Night split sampler, which it shared with Argentina’s Pandemia and Mexico’s Infestation. This disc was issued on American Line. The band and Arise Records clashed and went their separate ways with the group changing its name now without the services of Martinez.
Goes without saying that the band returned in 2015. The other members dumped the project in 2016 leaving Del Val.
A compilation, called Valley Of Sadness, was released in 2016.
