With 3 songs done and ready for vocals, and guitar extras they were on the hunt for the last 2 pieces of this puzzle, and as luck would have it, the melodic death band Withered Sun had just broken up and left vocalist Jonathan Helme (ex-The Accursed as well), and guitarist Rob Schweitzer without a band. After showing interest in the band, they asked Jonathan to join on vocals, then Rob to hit the 6 strings. Coming together the band was formed in November of 2009. Being nameless for all of this time together, it was time to breath new life into the band.

With a new name, a full line up and songs like Horns Ov War, Ritualistic Circles and Master Ov Aeonic Fire, Sauriel will be a blackened death metal force to be reckoned with.
