Ophthalamia - Biography


Ophthalamia is a fantasy-world created by IT. The Goddess of this world is the woman with the demons, called Elishia. IT has also created the surroundings of Ophthalamia (I guess that the shores of Kaa-Ta-Nu are a part of this world, as the sea of Ragiih-Nib and the moutains of Makubu-Keen are), the land's creatures and a language for Ophthalamians... All songs of Ophthalamia are connected to stories about this fantasy-world.

Ophthalamia first started in 1989. The first lead vocalist was All, but he moved and was replaced by Shadow (on A Journey In Darkness). Then Shadow was replaced by Legion on Via Dolorosa and since Legion left to join the black metal band Marduk, All rejoined Ophthalamia to fill vocals.

Winter, the drummer, was a member on both of the albums. But he left Ophthalamia right after Via Dolorosa was recorded. He was replaced by Bone. Night, the bassist, replaced Mourning on Via Dolorosa and is now the second guitarist. From then on, he was replaced by Mist on bass.
