Back in 2007, Demonaz released demo versions of two songs — "Over The Mountains" and "Dying Sun" — via MySpace. Both tracks were recorded in 2007 at Soundsurf studios in Bergen, Norway.
DEMONAZ lineup on the demos was as follows:
Demonaz (Vocals, Music and Lyrics)
Abbath (Bass, Backing Vocals)
Ice Dale (Guitars)
Demonaz previously desscribed his solo material as "another cold dimension in my musical and lyrical world."
Abbath and Demonaz formed IMMORTAL in 1990. In 1998 Demonaz stopped playing live with IMMORTAL due to a hand injury, "but writing and working fully with IMMORTAL has been important for us to continue," he said.
2007 saw the IMMORTAL reunion with 10 concerts. The new stage lineup with Abbath, Horgh and Apollyon perfomed the first gig of this journey headlining the Inferno Festival in Norway.
