Bio (from label):
BERSERK was born under the name of Abaddon and the initial members were Forjstorm (guitar), LordMonk (bass), Frozen Wind (drums) and Gog (vocals and guitar).
Some months later, in November of 1998, joined a new member, Obitus (synthesizers). Then, they decided to change the name by the actual, BERSERK, because this is more appropriate for their pagan ideals.
In December of 1999, they recorded a first demo called "Return of The Ancient Laws", that it is formed by four songs and it was composed in honour to their culture and roots.
The demo has been distributed by Europe, and the comments have been very good. In June of 2000, Gog was expeled, and then Nazak joined BERSERK as new vocalist. On summer of 2000, they inited the recording of their debut Cd "...From the Celtiberian Woods", that was released by Oaken Shield in early 2001
In July of 2002, Berserk recorded the new album called "Rites of Supremacy" in the Artica Studios of Ciudad Real. The artist "Abigor" worked in the great artwork of the new CD. Obitus left the band in October of this year.
The lyrics of BERSERK deal about the fight against the christianity, being based upon the predominant cultures in Celtiberia, before the invader's arrival.
