Founded in the mid 1990, DESDEMONIA are a Luxembourg-based Metal Band that has been playing live shows for almost over 2 decades now. Their crushing thrashy Death-Metal has become their trademark.
Over the years, DESDEMONIA have shared the stage with bands like:
HEAVEN SHALL BURN – SOILWORK – GOREFEST – APOCALYPTICA - DYING FETUS – HAIL OF BULLETS - HATESPHERE - DISMEMBER – LOUDBLAST - IN EXTREMO – OOMPH! – DESASTER – MAYHEM – KRISIUN – HADES - DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER - RIKERS - PUNGENT STENCH - THE LEGION – WATCHA – ENTHRONED – SINISTER - MORGANA LEFAY - SACRED SIN just to name some of them.
DESDEMONIA have been among the first bands in the Luxembourg metal scene to bring this kind of music to the people when live metal shows were virtually non-existent. Thus being the longest existing metal band in Luxembourg , the members of DESDEMONIA have never stopped to try and keep their music fresh and inspiring and to share it with their public during intense shows .
The 2nd long-player "Paralyzed" was received very well by the music community . It gave the band the opportunity for non-stop gigging throughout Europe , participations on samplers of major press magazines and distribution of their records in many countries like Brazil, Russia, USA, Japan...
6 years after their last studio effort and with many live-shows under their belt, DESDEMONIA decided in 2008 to start recording for a new album. They came back with this new release simply entitled ”Existence” containing 10 songs that have been written over the course of a few years. In between, the band was relentless on tour.
This long-awaited album "Existence" was released on the 1st of may 2010 . A special release gig was held at the ROCKHAL, Esch/Alzette, L with the lads of Ex Inferis, Scarred and Assorted Nails in the presence of some 400 people.
On 28 january 2012, DESDEMONIA celebrated their 15th anniversary with an exceptional show at the KULTURFABRIK, Esch/Alzette. The presence of numerous friends and bands, many of whom had supported and shared great moments over these 15 years, but also the 500 fans made this a truly overwhelming event.
Over all those years, DESDEMONIA never tried to keep pace with changing trends but attempted instead to cut their own path. The passion for music and live playing remains strong within the members of DESDEMONIA and is the reason to continue creating music.
In that perspective, new songs and a new album should see release in the near future.
All DESDEMONIA albums are distributed internationally through MAPLE LEAF RECORDS and MORBID RECORDS or can be ordered in the STORE on this site.
