Conceived in 1999, the evolving Lemuria recorded their first demo in April 2002 entitled ‘The Vault of the Witness’. It's raw energy laid the foundation for what was to come.

After winning competitions and supporting major metal acts ‘Tales, Ale & Fire’ was forged during the summer months of 2004. The independent production enhanced the unique sound of this concept album and Lemuria delivered something unprecedented and unheard of within the Belgian metal scene. Held in the same vein as Finntroll, Ensiferum, Thyrfing, Bal Sagoth and even Rhapsody, the album demonstrated the huge progress made by the band and was embraced by metal heads and fans of other genres alike.

This release brought fame and fans to the band whilst gigs across Flanders helped generate a substantial following, with Lemuria headlining many concerts and supporting more big names such as Korpiklaani. The album sold out very quickly, even outselling death metal legends Aborted through Belgium’s leading underground distributor, and today is still highly sought-after.

The group was put on hold in August 2006 but exactly two years later Lemuria was reborn with two new guitarists and a fresh approach. New recordings were composed and orchestrated by the band and they then took on the production from recording, through mixing to mastering, such was their desire to deliver a positive new sound that still embraced their folk metal roots.

With this new incarnation, the sextet continued to write new music and started performing again in late 2008, to the delight of fans and reviewers. But the journey continues - and a whole new concept album was in the works; ‘Chanson de la Croisade’.

Mixing heavy music with orchestral elements, bombastic scores and daring instrumental and symphonic passages, Lemuria’s new offering will carve them a niche previously untouched by any Belgian band. With a new live experience, every band member’s skills will be pushed to the limit. Through rigid dedication to their art they aim to leave a lasting impression on the metal scene. And they will. « hide
