Starting in 1989 under the moniker of Fatal, this short-lived three-piece was active in the Michigan death metal scene for only two years. But when the band re-formed in 1996, an approach of goth, grind, and black metal took shape as they changed their name to the Lords of Algol. Taking their metallic inspirations from the likes of Venom and Bathory, as well as a number of Swedish metal acts, the lineup of Pythagoron (guitars/ keyboards), Mythras (vocals), Amun (vocals), and Xisuthros (programming) had no choice but to start a band like the Lords of Algol with their unfortunately blessed names. Following three years of gigging around Michigan, Medea Records released the Lords of Algol's 1999 full-length Disciple of the Mysteries.
