Biography of Band

Morgion was formed in 1990, stemming from influences such as Entombed, Autopsy and Paradise Lost. Originally formed by Rhett Davis, Dwayne Boardman and Jeremy Peto, Morgion was driven to compose memorably heavy music with original lyrical themes and songwriting to distinguish them from their contemporaries.

Morgion rehearsed for a full year in closed sessions before recording their five song debut demo Rabid Decay, and supported the recording with numerous live shows throughout 1992. In 1993, Morgion recorded two tracks for Travesty, a 7" release. In 1994 Morgion added Bobby Thomas and Ed Parker and began a new chapter by incorporating more melody and atmosphere. The band recorded nearly an hour of new demo material, which Relapse Records later released as the Among Majestic Ruin album. Two cover songs from the sessions appeared on Dwell Records Celtic Frost Tribute (Innocence and Wrath and The Usurper). Both Thomas and Parker would eventually leave the band, both being replaced by Gary Griffith.

In 1999 Morgion released their highly regarded Solinari album. This was their most ambitious recording yet, a perfect blend of heaviness and dark atmosphere. The high acclaim of Solinari proved to be a stepping stone in Morgion history.

The band has since gone through turbulent times with line-up changes and obstacles over the last few years until their return from hiatus in 2002. The year became one of focus and change; Peto was removed from the lineup (replaced by Justin Christian on Bass duties), and a split from Relapse Records was initiated. Morgion completed their writing of new material and embarked on the Doomination Of Europe 2003 Tour, in which Adrian Leroux helped contribute vocal duties.

In July of 2003, Morgion officially announced U.S. label Dark Symphonies as their new album partner, and began recording Cloaked by Ages, Crowned in Earth with Mathias Schneeberger (Solinari) at the helm of production. Cloaked by Ages, Crowned in Earth was released Tuesday, April 27, 2004.
