In September of 1997 Dennis Klink on the keys, Thomas Reeß on the drums, Robby Beyer at the vocals, Florian Spannagel and Michael Zieschang on the guitars wrote the original kind of Black Metal on their banner and formed up the basis of "Karkadan". But the first creative activities of the band were taken up at the beginning of December. The line-up of this time was replenished by replacing Michael Zieschang on the guitar with Daniel Pütz and Felix Moosmann joining the band on the bass guitar. In seeking its own style the music of "Karkadan" developed to a very varied mix of the dark types of Metal. The result is a symbiosis between hard Heavy Metal and extreme Black and Death Metal vocals. Because of no better description the followed direction was called "Black Heavy Metal". Only three months after its foundation the band did its very successful live debut. The very positive reactions were the reason for the decision to present the written material to the public. In December of 1999 the debut album called "Eternal black reflections", which was first thought to be a simple demo record, was finished. It was recorded and produced at the Maranis Studios by Vagelis Maranis (Sanvoisen). After the recordings Florian Spannagel left the band for musical reasons and Thomas Reeß for health reasons. Thomas Reeß was replaced by Marcel Frano on the drums for a short period. After numerous changes on the instruments the band has found a new line up which has a good future. At the side of the founding members D.P. (g) and R.B. (voc) the band is now completed by P.C. on the guitar, C.G. on the bass guitar and M.D. on the drums. The band has won more and more fans playing various gigs which were always acoustical and optical impressing events.
