(Vocal/instrumental group, 1990–present)

Fronted by Aaron Stainthorpe (vocals), this goth metal outfit formed in 1990 and released their first EP, Symponiare Infernus Et Spera Empyrium (1991). With dark lyrical concerns and matching music, they spent the 1990s building up a strong loyal following. Like Gods Of Sun (1996) aptly showcase this period sound. In recent years albums like Turn Loose The Swan (2003) and Songs Of Darkness Words Of Light (2006) and For Lies I Sire (2009) reveal growing lyrical depth and musical maturity.
