Progress was made while finding the Decameron style. The result was their debut demo "My Grave is Calling", released in early 1992. They made several of gigs and the response was very satisfying. A deal with Corpse Grinder records for a 7"ep was planned, but due to Corpse Grinders deceiving and lying tongues the 7"ep was never released.
In autumn of 1994 Johan decided to leave Decameron for a position in another band (Dissection). After a while, with Dark from Lord Belial as a session guitarist, Jonny Lehto joined and the line-up was complete again. The recording of their debut album "My Shadow..." could finally begun in the summer of `95. After the recording of "My Shadow..." Tobbe left the band.
Jonnu have also departed due to personal problems within the band. Although line-up problems have accrued, the music of Decameron will always be inspired of such acts as; Morbid Angel, King Diamond, Bathory, At The Gates and early Death without copying their music or style. Even such stages as pain, grief and hate inspires Decameron. 2.
