Obtenebris was born in 2003.
From 2003 to early 2007, the band had written many songs, finishing and recording a dozen of them, they had play a bunch of shows, contests and a first professional demo (still available) but, at the beginning of 2007, the band ended up parting ways with guitarist Yves Chaussé and vocalist Kim Greffe. After taking a break for a few months, the band got together with new guitarist Sean McGuigan and new singer Tom ''Thodrekr'' Guevara and decided to resurrect Obtenebris with a clean slate and brand new material.
In 2008, after having written new songs, the band began playing numerous gigs locally, playing with several signed and well-known local bands. The band has also appeared in several local metal publications, and has had major radio airplay ( CHOM 97.7FM ), Montreal's biggest rock station), as well as radio interviews.
As well, their songs are regularly played in Montreal's biggest rock/metal bars and clubs....all of this before the band recorded their first album.
