Byfrost was founded by HeavyHarms and R.I.Pmeister on a cold and windy Bergen night in 2007. Eager to release cold and dark but melodic riffs they hired a drummer and bassplayer – which formed the first version of Byfrost.
The EP – 'BYFROSTMETAL' – was the result of Heavy and R.I.Pmeisters' excellent songwriting, and recieved great reviews from magazines and webzines from all over the world.
The line-up was reformed in the winter of 2008 as R.I.Pmeister went from rythmguitar to bass, and Alkolust from Bergen deathmetal-act Hellish Outcast joined forces with Byfrost on drums – becoming the third member of this now vile threepiece.
During 2009 Byfrost have been busy writing and recording the debut album, 'Black Earth' in Conclave/Earache Studios, produced by Herbrand Larsen (Enslaved) and Bjørnar E. Nilsen (Vulture Industries), as well as playing concerts in Norway, clubs and festivals, and a mini tour with the Bergen doom metallers Syrach, travelling through Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
13th of April 2010 the long awaited album Black Earth was released on Painkiller Records.
