First starting with a 3 song demo tape “THE VAULT OF MEMBROS” Disma showed the incredible riffing and death metal blend of dual tuned down guitars, low rumbling bass and a smashing drummer.
Along with the deep vocals of Craig Pillard an instant classic was made.
The band followed up with a 7 ” Ep on Necroharmonic Productions and then a split 7” Ep with WINTERWOLF on Doomentia Records
The band was then signed to Profound Lore records and released their debut full length “Towards the Megalith” With great response from the death metal scene the band started playing more shows in NYC, Texas, Ohio, NJ and finally a short tour in Europe with cult legends CONVULSE in France and Italy.
Next came a bonus 7” with 2 new exclusive tracks recorded specifically for the DIEHARD 2LP version of “Towards the Megalith” as well as a split 7” with CONVULSE
