After some rehearsals they released the first and only demo: "In my misanthropic kingdom", released by Dark Dreams Production in august 2000.

The raw sound exploring several avangardistic dimensions of black metal was pretty well received by the audience even if the whole product had an anticommercial attitudine.

After this moment Tammuz had less and less time to spend on Fogland so Fulmineos started looking for other members to share his ideas. First came Alteea (vocals and keyboards) and then Odhin (electric and acoustic guitars) and Erebus (bass).

Bane Of Winterstorm

Bane of Winterstorm was conceived in July of 2009 as an unrelenting force in a new wave of dark symphonic power metal fusing mysticism, beauty and crushing heaviness with a powerful and progressive nature, while borrowing from many other styles allows aggression and romanticism to flow throughout their unique style.

Having already set itself apart from other Australian metal acts by offering something that until now has been otherwise absent from Australia, the Melbourne Quintet aim to take the next step with the release of their ominous debut album The War Of Shadows I: The Last Sons Of Perylin. With its roots deep in European power metal and Tolkien-esque storytelling, the band delves deep into melodic thrash and death metal to allow the sound to breathe a certain darkness over the usually uplifting genre. A foreboding terror looms over soaring melodies, while epic choirs chant over blast beats and crushing riffs creating a balance of graceful and menacing tones. The band is joined by some of the most powerful singers in the world including vocalists of Dragonland, Anarion, Lord, Damnation's Day, Divine Ascension, Desecrator, Orpheus Omega and Vanishing Point to accurately portray the lore of The War Of Shadows and take symphonic metal to new menacing heights.
