This made them a quintet: Holy Smoke on vocals, Celesh on the guitar, Vlad Veronique on the bass and Franz Von Rottenstein at the drums, and Lady Selena on the keyboard. She soon assisted in developing No Forgiveness's unique style, adding a gothic flare. In September of 2002, No Forgiveness recorded their first real demo and began playing larger shows. They preformed on Halloween night in a club in Turin, thriving on the atmosphere. They repeated their first success at the "Onyrica" show, adding new songs and sounds.
It began to look as if the band were making their real debut. After months of recording, they released their second demo, Obscure Shining. The critics showered Obscure Shining with positive reviews, dubbing it suprisingly unique. Soon after that, the bass guitarist Vlad left the band due to personal problems. His place was taken by Desy, a state-of-the-art musician who previously performed in other Turin-native metal bands.
The next live show was the very sucessful "Pagella Rock," where they reached number 36 out of 90 groups. Many competitions and live shows followed. In October 2003, they released the LP Masquerade in limited quantities. The accompining tour was dubbed Insane Tour 2004-2005, and included an industrial festival where No Forgiveness co-headlined with XP8. Read more on Last.fm.
