Biography of Band
The year it all begun. Eddie (Vox, guitars) and Kjell-Ivar (Bass, vox) are thinking of starting a Black-metal band, and in the last days of the year the band was named Permafrost.
The first songs are created this winter and spring, "Where there's no tomorrow" is one of them, and still one of our favourites, and appears on both demos.
More songs are being made, but nothing extraordinary happens.
Øyvind Rosseland joins the band late this year.
The first songs composed on synth are seeing the light of day, "Dance of the undead" is the first one. The band changes the name from Permafrost to Ancestral Legacy.
Recording of our first demo, finished in august. 10 tracks of symphonic black metal. Stefan Hammer Knutsen joins on drums in December.
Thomas Bie joins on guitar in february. Both Thomas and Stefan leaves the band after few months, Thomas is moving to another town and Stefan is going to military service. Before the split the band records the track "Emptiness" which is released on the Norwegian BM-sampler "Svartmetall compilation", featuring bands like Vesen, 1349 and Lunaris.
A new demo is recorded and finished in March. Nine tracks this time, four of them are re-recordings from the last demo and the compilation-CD. Øyvind leaves the band shortly after. Eddie creates some new songs which marks a new direction for the band; no synth and a bit more progressive feel. Børre Iversen joins on drums. Elin Anita Omholt fills in on clean vocals this autumn and Tor Arvid Larsen joins on guitars in December. More regular rehearsals than ever. We have plans for making a new demo-CD spring 2003.
Recording of new demo started in February, but not finished until April, due to no time limits and the fact that not all songs were finished when we began recording. A new bassist, Anton Dead (also known as Atle Johansen), joined in April. He has previously played in the band Flown, and some other bands through the years.
Ancestral Legacy finally got their debut concert in April, after more than 8 years of existence, and it's gonna be many more in the future...
A new demo-EP was recorded early November. It was also called November, and contains one new song, one re-recorded as well as 3 bonus cover tracks to be found on a strictly limited edition of 30 CD's.
We played at Kjellerrock in Kristiansand in December and won 10 free hours at Lynor studios.
In March we visited Lynor studios for 3 days to record and mix a new demo. It was NOT mastered in Dub studios as we had planned, but at Lynor in August. Several new songs were made this year. A music video for an edit version of the song "Crash of silence" from our latest promo-CD was shot in mid November.
We played at by:Larm in Stavanger. This is the largest showcase/festival event in Norway, and this year a total of about 120 bands participated. Our music video was released this summer as a DVD with additional documentary footage included. Børre Iversen quits the band in November. In late December the band can look upon a ten year history since the creation of Permafrost, not bad at all!
