Mistweaver was formed in October 1997 and the first rehearse was in January 1998. The style in those days was a mixture between Doom and Death. The band started the composition of the first stuff, still without a bassist and some months later the line up was completed and the first gigs finally came.
After four gigs, the first changes of line up due to musical differences and the search for new members last longer this time, until June 1999 and then, after some gigs, the band recorded their first mini album “Sol Obscurabitur”at Oso´s Studio, released in June 2000. More gigs and in May 2001 “Dream´s Domain” was recorded at Tala Studios in Bermeo. The album was released in September and Mistweaver signs to Zero Rec, re-releasing the album in December. A new change of bassist and the band goes to play abroad for first time, going to Portugal for two dates in February 2002.
More gigs and meanwhile the creation of the new album was happening and in October Mistweaver flies to Germany to record the second full lenght “The Aftermath”, at Spacelab Studios. The album would be released in June 2003 with Deepsend Rec from USA after breaking the contrat with Zero. That was the chance to go to play to that country, playing at the well known Milwaukee Metalfest. In 2004 Mistweaver signs to the label Golden Lake from Scotland and during the first three months of 2005 the band recorded a new masterpiece, “Age of Darkness” at VRS studio in Madrid and mastering the stuff at Finnvox in Finland.
Unfortunately more changes of line up came to the band and also the label closed its doors, so the activity for gigs was not very regular. But the new songs were breeding and so the band decides to hire a session drummer for the recording of the new album and so the drum tracks were recorded in March 2007 at Tribal Art Studios in Gerona. The rest of the album was supposed to be recorded in September but because of different causes has to be delayed until May 2008. Meanwhile the line up is ready to play witha new drummer. Then in May the new album was recorded, this time at Sonic Train Studios in Sweden and the title is “Tales from the Grave”.
During these years, Mistweaver has played a lot of gigs and participated in several Festivals so they have had the chance to share stage with many bands like WASP, Enslaved, Suffocation, Strapping Young Lad, Misery Index, Exodus, Grave, Mortician, Sodom, Ensiferum, among others. After some member changes, and this time with a solid line up, they have recorded their brand new album “Nocturnal Bloodshed”. Recorded at Undead Studios (Burgos), except drums that had been recorded by Alfred Berengena at Tribal Art Studios in Gerona and voices at Luber Studios (Burgos) with Rodrigo Vázquez, the mixing and master took place at Unisound Studios by the famous musician and producer Dan Swanö (Edge of Sanity, Nightingale, Bloodbath). Cover art has been made by Juanjo Castellano (Vomitory, Nominon, Avulsed)...
