The lineup for this album was: Ferun on guitars, Friirr the bassist, Nordischer Künstler on keyboard/synths, Eike C. Kroeger on vocals and Selphratus, the drummer. Since Mephistopheles was now done with this label and was promised to be endorsed and have a better salary with this new label, they joined Last Episode Records, in 1999 - whilst releasing their album "Songs of the Desolate Ones" a followup album to Landscape Symphonies. This one accumulated the same Mephistopheles sound but, put aside the lyrical themes and made this become a harsher, angrier album pertaining to despair and darkness. Now - in 2001, features a new line-up filled with three synthesizer players including Christoph Greger, Bernd Ammermann, Garvin Bösch whom also does bass along with; Eike-C. Kröger on vocals, Jury Kowalczyk on lead guitar and Hanno Weihe on backup guitar and symphonic backup vocals.
In this year, they released "Modern Instinct's Purity" which was a concept album as well. It was based off of themes of future and science fictional type of style. The genre's motivation moved into a Symphonic Black Metal style, hence the themes. After endless complaints with Last Episodes and their failure to pay Mephistopheles along with many other bands, they joined a new small label called Remedy, in 2003. They also came across the ideas of Shakespeare-influenced poetry but, in a deathly, evil manner.
This remained Symphonic Black Metal but, had a smaller, dense lineup due to the members dropping out. It was a simple four-piece band and then since their poor income and lack of members, they disabandoned. Their hard attempts to impress the audience was not working. 2) Mephistopheles was a Blackened death doom band from Brazil. 3) Mephistopheles is a black metal band from Brazil. 4) Mephistopheles is a Technical Death Metal with Jazz influences band from Australia. 5) Mephistopheles is a black metal band from Croatia. 6) Mephistopheles is a heavy metal band from Japan, please change your tags to Ｍｅｐｈｉｓｔｏｐｈｅｌｅｓ. 7) Mephistopheles was a black metal band from Slovenia.
