Desaster is a black/thrash band formed in Koblenz, Germany in 1988. Their lyrical themes involve war, hate and satanism. They are considered influential to many black metal bands.
Taking their name from the Destruction song "Total Desaster," the band formed in 1988. They played their first live show in 1989. Afterwards the band had line-up issues before Infernal, the only remaining member of the original line-up, found musicians to continue Desaster in 1990.
After the two demos The Fog of Avalon and Lost in the Ages, Merciless Records released a split-7" with Ungod in 1995, the band´s vinyl-debut. In 1996 the first album A Touch of medieval Darkness was released and the band got a great response from all over the world. The Line Up for their following release, the Stormbringer mini-album in 1997, changed to include the new drummer Tormentor.
