Lord Impierno: Hails, in 2008 I was playing drums in a black thrash metal band called DEMONIFIED, but we’ve split up in 2009 due to personal problems of my band mates, so I’ve decided to form another band, this time a full black metal band called Satanas, then I’ve started to search for band mates that have the same beliefs in black metal. Then I came up with black demon and carcallas (ex members of dark lord), black demon, carcallas and I are starting to make songs in 2009 then destroyer entered the band in 2010 and we started to play live rituals in 2010.
