Isengard was formed by the brothers Tillman in Vikingstad near Linköping (Séance, Satanic slaughter, etc.) of 1988. A demo called Atomic Winter was recorded in 1992. The band signed to a label called Bums, but the elusive company went broke before anything transpired. The label was soon resurrected as Eurisko however and the debut went ahead.
The second album was issued independently before being licensed to record companies. Janne left in 2004. He was replaced by Ted Lundin.
This heavy metal band should not be confused with the Norwegian Isengard.
