HALPHAS was founded in 2014 by Tempestas (Drums, also NOCTURNAL / CROSS VAULT), Thurstan (Guit.), Forcas (Bass) and Legatus (Vocals).
Already the following year the band released a first demo with three songs. After Avnas (Guit.) completed the lineup in 2016, the recordings for the first full-lenght-album „Dawn of a crimson empire“ began soon.
From the beginning, the band focused on the creation of uncompromising, original Black Metal, characterized by epic melodies, catchy mid-tempo passages and brute but also multifaceted vocals. The songs are about death, hatred, pain and dark desires.
The eternal struggle and the inner striving for strength are a central lyrical theme.
