Death/Black/Thrash metal from Sweden.
The band, or perhaps more appropriately - the project, was formed in the early 90s by Terror.
The music style has evolved from raw primitive thrash/black in the early years to later more raw death/black/thrash metal.
In the early years, the project was called Grave Desecrator and a few simple demos were recorded of which several songs were later re-recorded on the debut album such as "Nocturnal Sacrifice", "Deathwitch" and "Under the Black Wings". Then the project changed its name to Deathwitch and recorded some more demos with songs that were later re-recorded on the first two albums.

As for the lyrics, they are simple and primitive and quite influenced by some early Bathory and Sarcófago and similar bands.

The core lineup of the first two albums were Terror (Runemagick etc) and Reaper (Death Breath, Runemagick etc). Several lineup changes have occurred over the years and the rest is history...

The project is dead since 2005.
