Mörk Gryning (in English it means "dark dawn") was formed in 1993 by Goth Gorgon (Real Name: Jonas Berndt; guitar/keyboard/bass) and Draakh Kimera (Real Name:Peter Nagy; ex-Defender; vocals/drums/guitar). Their early work as a duo in Tusen År Har Gått (1995) and Return Fire (1998), along with Maelstrom Chaos (2001; with Mattias Eklund(a.k.a. Avatar; added on guitar/back. vocals) would be of the traditional Black Metal style, but by the time of their most recent album, Pieces Of Primal Expressionism (2003; with Johan Larsson(a.k.a. Aeon) replacing Eklund) the band had moved toward incorporating Death and Progressive elements into their sound while maintaining the Black Metal base; the album gained critical acclaim. Kimera would leave after the release. In very early 2005, founding member Goth Gorgon had lost interest in extreme music and closed the band up.
