The history of the thrash/blackmetal band IRDORATH starts in 2005. Markus (guitar) and three other musicians founded the band, the first demo “Erwachen” and the first album “Götterdämmerung” (Label Black Lava Records) were recorded and the first gigs were played. During the following years some personal changes happened. From this time on Thomas plays the drums and Esche performs on the rhythmguitar.

The second album “Dekonstrukteur des Fleisches” was recorded at Soundtempel Studio and produced by Stefan Traunmüller. After finishing the record the singer and the bassplayer left the band, so that there was place for Markus to take over the vocal parts and Mario to join as the new bass player. With this lineup the band proved their power successfully on stage only one a few weeks later. Furthermore, the german record label Massacre Records became interested and signed the band. The Album “Dekonstrukteur des Fleisches” was released worldwide through Massacre Records in January 2012 and Irdorath were playing lots of concerts that year.

Apart from performing live, Irdorath had lots of ideas for new songs. A new set was born and Thomas started to record the drums at Stage One Studio in Germany November 2012. After that was finished, the recording of the guitars, bass guitar and the vocals took place once more at the Soundtempel Studio. The new record, which is called „I Am Risen“, was finally mixed and mastered by Andy Classen at the Stage One Studio. “I Am Risen” was released in October 2013 through the Austrian Music Label Noisehead Records.

Lots of concerts and festivals have been played in Austria, Germany, Slovenia, Croatia and Switzerland to promote this record and the feedback from the fans and the music press was overwhelming.

In 2015 Esche left the band. To celebrate the band’s 10 year anniversary Irdorath played some special shows with Christoph (Groteskh, Sakrileg), who joined the band on rhytmguitar. Furthermore they started to work on the new record. In August 2016 Thomas entered the Soundtempel Studio to record the drums. A few weeks later Markus did the guitar recording there. Bass guitar and vocals have been recorded at Sound Delusion Studios in September. The mixing and mastering was done at Hertz Studio in Poland. Finally Irdorath found a new full time member to play the second guitar. The lineup is complete again – Markus Leitner (guitar/vocals), Thomas Leitner (drums), Mario Jackisch (bass guitar) and Craig Hauser on guitar.

The latest album “Denial Of Creation” was released on 1st September 2017 through Worm Hole Death (Italy), various shows and festival-appearances followed and their 4th CD “DENIAL OF CREATION” gained outstanding feedback from the metal-community. America- and Japan-release followed soon!

At the end of 2018 IRDORATH toured through entire Europe with “Schirenc Plays Pungent Stench” and is now currently working on their 5th full length!!!
