In 1998, the band wanted to increase its strength by adding new members, like another keyboard player, Hylgaryss, a percussionnist/bassist, Sombre Cÿr and a violinist, Eliane. Together, they recorded the 1st album, Royaume Mélancolique. They also held their first concert in September 1998 near Paris.

In November 1999, they signed with Wounded Love Records and after the 2nd violinist Marguerite joined, they recorded their 2nd album, De Lumière et d'Obscurité, which was released in November 2000.

Right after their recording sessions, Marquise Ermia left the band to carry on her studies, and a new singer, Dame Pandora, joined the band.

Their 3d album, L'Être las - L'envers du miroir was recorded in March 2002 and released at the beginning of 2003, few months after the release of a two-track single. This album had a huge success in France and Germany.[citation needed.

After few concerts in France, the band returned to Germany in order to record its 4th album, Les Mémoires Blessées. This latest one, which was released in early 2004, confirmed Dark Sanctuary's own style while providing a deeper maturity, as well as new musical horizons.

At 2005 first compilation Thoughts:9 years in the sanctuary was released.

The newest album of Dark Sanctuary is Exaudi Vocem Meam. It consists of two parts, released at 2005 and 2006. « hide
