The line-up back then was: Arvath (drums), Arluth Dhu (guitar/vocals) and Israth (bass/vocals). By this time, two demos were recorded, namely in ’92 (Decapitation) and in ’93 (untitled). These were never launched into the scene though. A bit later the band started giving some concerts, so 3 gigs were done in Portugal in ’95, this time as a Black Metal formation, and under the new name Geryous. After this period there came a time where rehearsing became impossible since the band was kicked out of the rehearsal-place due to good old censorship. Somewhere between ’97 and ’98 there was a final change of the band name to Israthoum, and which was shortly followed by a change of residence to the Netherlands (Arluth Dhu and Arvath) and Luxembourg (Israth) respectively. Even though this meant a physical distance between its members, Israthoum finally got the chance of rehearsing again, and this time with proper material, and also some new members joined the horde.
This resulted in the release of the demo Hatred in 2001. This one was followed in 2002 by the MCD The Art of Malice. Both releases were self-financed and had a very poor production. After Arluth Dhu relocated back to Portugal, Israthoum started recording what was supposed to become the first full-length album. It ended up consisting on a mini-album entitled Black Scenery Avatar, and was released in 2004 by S.A.R.S.
Productions in a limited amount of 333 copies. This release was very well received by the scene and soon Israthoum signed a contract with Merciless Records for the re-release of this mini-album (on both MLP as MCD) and possibly for future releases as well. Due to unknown reasons Vincent left the band in 2005 and Israthoum recruited a new guitarist, namely Kald. During their existence, Israthoum shared the stage with Marduk, Satanic Slaughter, Dornenreich, Sabbatical Goat, Ragnarok, Maniac Butcher, Helheim, Bestial Mockery, Botulistum, Sauron, Perditor, Zemial, Desaster, Infinity, Ancient Rites, etc. Members of Israthoum also play or have played in bands like Perditor, Funeral Winds, Warlust, Liar of Golgotha, Caym (former Bestial Summoning), Onheil, Eternal Frost, etc. Discrography: "Demo-tape" Year: 2001 Recorded: Dynamo studios (Rotterdam) Label: Self-financed Track listing: 1.
