Originally formed under the name Abortus in 1998, the re-named Herratik started in mid 1998 and introduced a new brand of Death/Thrash Metal into the Sydney, Australia Metal Scene. From mid 1998 to early 1999, the band recorded some Demo's, and went through line up changes. In Early 1999 as Abortus, they were ready to play live, with a tight & secure line-up.
Throughout early 1999 the band built up a strong following, so Abortus recorded their debut CD Judge Me Not, and released it in August 1999. After the release of Judge Me Not, Abortus continued to headline many shows around the Sydney Metal Scene until May 2000 when the original drummer left the band. While Abortus were searching for a new drummer, they continued to write new material for a second CD. In August 2000, Abortus found the drummer they needed; Mike came into the band. He was given the new material and had until November 2000 to be ready to start pre-production for the second CD titled Process Of Elimination. The 2nd full length CD was recorded in January, 2001 and released through Italian Label 'Code666' in October 2001.
Two months after the CD release, the act went on their first European tour, supporting Ancient Rites, and Mystic Circle. The tour consisted of about 20 shows across Germany, Holland, Italy, Franc e, Czech Republic, Austria & Switzerland.
After going home, Abortus planned, booked and promoted their own headline Tour of Australia. This tour consisted of over 20 shows over the space of 8 months. It started in April and finished in November 2002. It went across all the major cities and towns across Australia. After this tour, Abortus became a headliner act across the whole country. After the Australian tour, Mike left the band leaving them drummer-less again. Abortus received the services of temporary fill in drummer Dave Upston, and continued to play Headlining shows in 2003, while writing the new material for a third full length release. In September-October 2003, Abortus supported Mystic Circle on their debut Australian Headline Tour. This tour was once again arranged, organized and promoted by Abortus themself. After the tour, Abortus employed their long awaited 2nd guitarist. The had been looking for a 2nd guitarist since the original rhythm guitarist was fired back in 1998, but finally found one in the form of Wader. But prior to hiring him, Abortus decided to change the name of the band to Herratik, a deliberate misspelling of "Heretic".
Wrath Divine would arrive in 2007. This album contained 10 new tracks, plus 4 more re-recorded older songs from the previous two CD's in recognition of the Abortus days. It was recorded at Amethyst Studios, engineered, mixed and produced by former Dimmu Borgir guitarist Astennu. Herritik also hired a session drummer to complete this recording under the name of Necrodemon from Germany's Black/Death Metal band: Mystic Circle.
Compromise Gone arrived in 2011 under the membership of George Kozaroski (Bass), Wader (Guitars), George Trajkovski (Guitars), Mark White (Vocals).
