Thus Defiled were originally formed in 1992 with the aim of creating some of the most intense and dynamic yet original black metal within the extreme music scene. Through many years of evolution the band have expanded their style of black metal as the band members grew as individuals, but still hold true to their original black metal roots whilst continuing to create their own style of metal.
With the first full length release â€śThrough the Impure Veil of Dawnâ€ť Thus Defiled built up a successful following in mid 90â€™s, and â€śWings of the Nightstormâ€ť expanded on this success gaining the band major slots with bands such as Cradle of Filth, Cannibal Corpse, Moonspell and Immolation to name but a few.
Durin this era line-up problems raised their head, but towards the new millennium two new members were found in the shape of Paul F and Rob V. The band then set about writing and rehearsing new material. This material had a more progressive edge to it, yet still extremely dark in essence.
