In the summer of 1996 they recorded their first demo, Atheistic Emotions, which featured vocals by Christina Maniati. The demo includes three atmospheric symphonic death metal songs, a cover of Black Sabbath's "Paranoid (song)," and an ambient tune with only female vocals, keyboards, and electric guitars. The specific release was announced as the "Promo of the Month by the Greek Metal Hammer magazine.[citation needed] Following the release of the demo, Dimitris Panayiotidis left the band for military service and was replaced by Nikos Baltas. In 1997, they released a single-song promo entitled Words of Insanity, which gave them the opportunity to sign with the American label The End Records, which released their first official album, Embossed Dream in Four Acts.

The sound of this album is best characterized as death metal featuring brutal male and operatic female vocals, and influences from classical music. The second release of the band came in 2000, Deceitful Melody. After that, the band came to a standstill for several years due to many line-up changes, caused mainly by the obligatory military service of some of the band’s members. In 2004 the band formed again with a new line-up and a different musical orientation. The band played several shows to promote the news songs from their upcoming release, the self-titled Odes Of Ecstasy promo (2006) which had five songs.

A full album was finished in October 2007. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
