Ordo Funebris. Artist Bio

In the year 2002, at the start of the month of April, three dark souls crossed paths in the same dream: a dream to make the music that sprung from their innards a reality, a music full of fantasy and mystery. With great emotion, they decided to meet for the first time, and upon seeing their sentiments mutually expressed and their musical language understood to perfection, they decided to give life to what they called Ordo Funebris.

Ordo funebris is comprised of Lady Nott (Violin), Sathorys Elenorth (Keyboard) and Lady Morte (Vocals).

After a few rehearsals, an idea ocurred to the three: to have something solid in their hands, something to be able to listen to, something to make themselves know. Thus, they set to recording their first demo, Cantar a la Morte, between the 11th and 17th of may, 2002, in the sound studio Maxim Sound, in Barcelona, Spain. Cantar a la Morte is inspired by the night...the dark begetter, the sweet embrace of death, the eternal whisper of the wind, the sadness in its silent hands, thosen magical forests that adorn the soul, the sea and its profound lament. And in the tower of Salvana, which remains ancestral in the most profound depths of its being.

Having the demo in their hands, Ordo Funebris dedicated themselves to copyrighting their work, as well as their name, as they wanted to be sure to enter a secure arena before making themselves known to the world.

August, 2002: The Drama Company, based in Bilbao, offered to record their
CD. Ordo Funebris returned to the studio that same month, in order to record
"Lycanthia," "La Danza," and "Maellus Maleficarum," thus completing their
future album debut, that would later be entitled, Cantar a la Morte: Fabula Triste.

November, 2002: The group had their first live performance at a Pub in Terrassa, called Mirabunda; the concert was a great success.

January, 2003: Cantar a la Morte: Fabula Triste was released for sale,
being distributed throughout Spain, Germany, France, Italy, and Canada.

January 10, 2003: Ordo Funebris shared the stage with the Gothic metal band,
Embellish, and the Gothic dark wave group, Dark & Beauty, for a concert in the Sala Mephisto of Barcelona.

April, 2003: Barbarian Magazine published an interview with the group and named Cantar a la Morte: Fabula Triste the album of the month.

May, 2003: The publication, Hell Awaits, published an interview with the group in their May issue, as well as a review of the album, which received their
highest praise.

May, 2003: The first recording of the album is sold out
