The band was born in March 1999 from the will of Herr Morbid and another mysterious musician known as Torment. After a few months Torment left the band and Herr Morbid decided to continue as a one-man band. The first, self-produced MCD "Obscura Arcana Mortis" was recorded in May 1999 but released only 1 year later (June 2000). The style on this MCD was an obscure, occult and aggressive Black Metal with some depressive shades. In the meantime Herr Morbid decided to move towards a more melancholic, depressive and slow-paced Doom/Black Metal approach, and some new songs in this vein were written between 1999 and 2000. The result was the first full-lenght album "Songs To Leave", recorded during the year 2000 and 2001. With this album FORGOTTEN TOMB contributes to the birth of a new sub-genre in Black Metal, the so-called "Suicidal Black Metal", together with a few other bands such as Shining and Abyssic Hate.
In 2001 the band signed a deal with the rip-off swedish label Selbstmord Services, in fact the album release was delayed due to the misfunctional way of working of the label itself. In the end, "Songs To Leave" was finally released in August 2002 on CD and Limited LP. The album received enthusiastic reactions by both critics and Black/Doom Metal fans worldwide, selling several thousand copies and establishing FORGOTTEN TOMB as one of the most promising bands in the Extreme Metal field. In the beginning of 2003 the band entered the famous Abyss Studios in Sweden to record the second full-lenght album, titled "Springtime Depression". Engineered by renomed producer Tommy Tagtgren, the album featured Wedebrand (former Shining member) on drums, with Herr Morbid still playing all the other instruments. Originally meant to be released on Selbstmord Services, the album was unleashed on CD through french label Adipocere Records instead (during June 2003), while the 2LP limited version was released on german Blut & Eisen Prod . "Springtime Depression" redefined the FORGOTTEN TOMB' sound, getting rid of other influences and creating its own, typical style.
The album was hailed by fans worldwide and all the reviews on Metal magazines/webzines were still totally enthusiastic, making "Springtime Depression" a cult-album instantly. In the meantime FORGOTTEN TOMB became a live-band too, with a line-up formed by Herr Morbid on Rhythm Guitar/Vocals + some session musicians. A few gigs were played in Italy, then in the following months an official 4-piece line-up was announced, including the new members Razor SK on Lead/Clean Guitars, Algol (already member of the band HIEMS) on Bass and Asher (already member of DOMINA NOCTIS) on drums. With this line-up FORGOTTEN TOMB played several successful gigs all around Europe in the fall of 2003, both as headliner and in festivals. In the beginning of 2004 the band has recorded its 3rd full-lenght album, named "Love's Burial Ground", released in September 2004 on CD through Adipocere Records. The original cover artwork -eloquently showing the picture of a child with a gun in her mouth- got censored, so the album was released with an alternative artwork in a slipcase edition.
This album showed the natural progression of the band, able to evolve without forgetting the beginnings, and introduced the new additional member of the band: Mr. Nordvargr from Sweden (main-mind of MZ412, NORDVARGR), who played 3 Ambient/Industrial intermezzos. The band played several gigs in Europe during 2004, often as headliner in some Doom and Black Metal festivals. During 2005 the band re-released the previously sold-out album "Songs To Leave" in a new digipack edition on Adipocere Rec. and then took a break, to focus on some side-projects and to clear up the mind about the future direction of the new material. Plans for a 2006 re-release of "Obscura Arcana Mortis" on CD and LP (including some bonus material) through Eerie Art Records have been done too. In the meantime FORGOTTEN TOMB started to write and rehearse brand new songs between Fall 2005 and Spring 2006, erasing the rumours spread by people on the Internet about a split-up.
After signing a new deal with the italian well-known label Avantgarde Music, the band entered the studio in May 2006 to record the 4th full-lenght opus, grimly titled "Negative Megalomania", to be released in September 2006 on CD. This album shows a significative evolution of the band, which added many new elements to their classic style, creating a bleak, perverse and apocalyptic vision of life and future.
