R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. Carach Angren was formed in 2003 in the Dutch municipality of Landgraaf, The Netherlands, after two members of Vaultage started a side project, due to their shared love of both legends and black metal. It seemed to go well, so Vaultage stepped down and Carach Angren "was ready for bigger steps". Their first EP was The Chase Vault Tragedy, which, like all their releases, is a concept album.
Following this, they released a second EP, Ethereal Veiled Existence, at which point they were picked up by Maddening Media in 2007. It was then that Carach Angren recorded their first full-length album, Lammendam, which received positive international reviews. Their second album, Death Came Through a Phantom Ship, was released on February 26, 2010. They participated in the A Declaration of Hate European tour in support of this, with extreme metal bands Dark Funeral, Zonaria and Nefarium. On October 11, 2011, the band signed to Season of Mist and announced that a third album would be released some time in 2012. On 18th May 2012, their third studio album, Where the Corpses Sink Forever, was released, this time with a lyrical focus on war.
