MIRTHLESS emerged in the beginning of 2003 from the gathering of two sinister souls: Mirthless (Suicide voice of doom kult...) and Satyricon (Senile dementia in drums), who were inspired to create music filled with despair and darkness. A few months later another fallen soul appeared: Soulless (Mournful sound of anguish and pain) with whom the band composed two sad poems and recorded a rehearsal tape during November and December 2004 called "Rehearsal I". This first demo consists of slow and rough music, hailing the old days of doom metal acts. Those 24 minutes of music received rave reviews in the underground and delivered a great demand of respect for MIRTHLESS.
At the end of 2004, the band entered the "El Sotano" studios to record the first masterpiece called "Remembrances". It contains two odes of melancholy, lasting almost 26 minutes. The hymns of mournful, torturous, insane, sick, suicidal, bleak and emotional Doom Metal leave no hope for the listener, they blacken every day and destroy your soul. "Remembrances" is an authentic ode about inhuman emotions, prayers and laments. The lyrics and music are reflections and channel of the member's thoughts, philosophies, raw emotions and experiences. The music captures the essence of the word "Mirthless". MIRTHLESS is heavily influenced by the ancient sound of Doom Metal...
In 2009, after several offers MIRTHLESS signed a deal with the Japanese kult label "Deathrash Armageddon" for a 10'' MLP. The band entered a local studio to lay down their first vinyl, mystically titled "... A Las Orillas del Mar...". It contains pure sounds of depression! The Doom formula is to follow gloomy, deep, screaming or whispering voice, combined with mournful, heavily distorted guitars and slow drums in the traditional way.
The 10'' immediately got a lot of positive attention in the underground, bringing MIRTHLESS on the list of "Dunkelheit Produktionen", who offered the band a deal. At this time Satyricon quit the band for personal reasons and was replaced by Schizophrenic (Disturbed mind in drums) in 2011. He had been living in a mental hospital for a long period. MIRTHLESS soon came to an agreement with kult German label "Dunkelheit Produktionen" about the release of the long awaited debut album " A Dirge For Your Suicide", which will be released in spring 2013.
The new songs will be released in two different deluxe editions: As 12" LP or Digipack CD. Both versions will contain odes of pure remorse. The music is mainly driven by very slow, depressing guitar harmonies and is further characterized by minimal drums, and growled and whispered vocals. The main lyrical themes are personal spirituality, mysticism and depression. There are moments of tranquility in the stream of subconsciousness...
