A short studio session followed, with Tchort and Kobro being made permanent members. The following EP was called He's Turning Blue, followed by the albums Strange Old Brew and Morbid Fascination of Death - these were both recorded at the same time and were produced by Terje Refsnes at Sound Suite studio in Sandnes. Nordavind left the band after this studio session due to personal issues with Tchort being promoted to guitarist. Vrangsinn was promoted to bass, and Blood Pervertor to keyboard duties for following sessions and tours. With this lineup, the band recorded their fourth album, Defending the Throne of Evil, released by Season of Mist.
This album was the first to feature symphonic sounds, as witnessed with "It's Darker than You Think". The album was generally well-received. The following year, Carpathian Forest made two releases - We're Going to Hollywood for This, a live DVD, the title of which was a play on their compilation album We're Going to Hell for This, and another compilation entitled Skjend Hans Lik, which featured many new tracks, as well as some remastered ones from Bloodlust and Perversion. The band's most recent release was in 2006, with Fuck You All!!!!, an album which has similar structures to Black Shining Leather. The band last played live at the Inferno Festival in 2009, and confirmed rumors that a new album was in the works.
