Whelm was formed back in 2002 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Their intention was to fuse darkness, atmosphere & brutality into one crushing wave. The inspiration came in many forms and the music soon spoke for itself, holding elements of doom, sludge, post-hardcore & psychedelic rock.

In November 2004, Whelm arrived in SoundZone Studio to record their first first demo, which however wasn’t released until 2006 under the title "The Prologue". The lineup for these recordings consisted of Atli Brix Kamban (The Shallow Man), Mikkel Putzek, Casper Axilgård, Dave Müller (Chasing Eudaimonia, Black Wreath) and Jonas Manley. Later on the track "A State of Decay" from said recording session got a place on the “Asymmetry Compilation”, which was released through Total Rust Records.

Dave Müller and Jonas Manley left the band soon after the recording of “The Prologue” and Alex Falkesgard joined the band on bass.

Whelm shortly disbanded in the summer of 2012, but are now back on the active list. Their first full-length, titled "A Gaze Blank and Pitiless as The Sun" (consisting of pre-break material), was released on June 5th 2013. « hide
