This time it was a bit more melodic and afterwards saying, not the style that the band wanted to perform. After that demo, the band was layed on ice for eight years and the members were involved in their other band Burialmound and performed Satanic Death Metal & did a couple of albums titled Black Death in 2001 and Devil's Work 2005. Eventually, Burialmound had it's fair share of problems that lead to it's doom, and fate & consequences lead to the reform of Utgard in October 2005 with all of the founding members together again and with new drummer Them. This time the band was much more inspired, older (and a bit wiser) & had more clear vision of how they wanted to sound and began composing new stuff immediately after a few rehearsals. The band's debut album was released in autumn 2006 by Romanian label Mirgilus Siculorum as a tape version, which then lead to the deal for Cd/Lp releases from Die Todesrune Records. This debut sounds just as the band wanted, as they've recorded & mixed & mastered the whole album by their own. In 2008, after well over ten years working in the shadows of the deepest Finnish underground their second full-length album "Thrones and Dominions" was released.
Utgard plays their Black Metal in the mid 90ies Finnish BM vein still having their own distinct sound.
