Right from its inception in early 2000, DR has been raising eyebrows. Even with its unstable lineup till 2003 the band released its debut album just 9months after forming. While the album was amateurish it was the 1st for an Indian Metal band to independently release a CD. The album however did receive some praise from the local fans as well as few small underground zines and distros after it was re-recorded and released in 2001 with Demonstealer on vocals/guitars, Nikita on vocals/keys, Aditya aka Count Varathora on Bass and Yash on Drums. However, in 2003 this lineup was dissolved and the band was reborn with the Demonstealer on guitars/vocals, Husain on bass, Mephisto on keys and JP on drums. With this line-up the band wrote new material and in 2005 released their highly acclaimed album A Darkness Descends on Demonstealer Records. The album received rave reviews from many metal websites including a 9/10 from The Metal Observer. In 2006, Pradeep joined the band as lead guitarist while drummer JP parted ways. As the band struggled to find a permanent replacement for JP in April 2007 they recorded their EP Beyond The Darkness with Demonstealer taking over the drum duties in the studio as well. Finally in July 2007 the band found a permanent replacement in skin slammer Viru. Since then DR has been touring the country extensively and writing new material for their next full length due for release at the end of 2008 sometime.
