ot to be confused with the more recent Swedish Speed/Thrash metal outfit of the same name, the Chilean Bewithed was created by vocalist Doomicus and guitarist Epic "Arahn Evil" Warrior in 1990, and officially entered the scene in 1991 with their demo In God We Trust (The Medieval Fears), a recording that laid the foundations for their characteristic Black/Doom sound. A second demo followed in 1992, Nemesis, featuring three new members: Iron "Aganamon" Warrior (guitar), Path Sentinel (bass), and W.T. (drums). With this line-up, Bewitched went on to record one more demo, Doomed, which displayed a more Gothic and Epic Black/Doom direction and was widely distributed through European mail orders like 'Osmose Productions' and 'Holy Records'. The last set eventually led to a deal with 'Warmaster Records' in Colombia, to release a split LP with Finish F, called Uncunt.

After another line-up change, and after several session members, the Hibernum in Perpetuum (1996) full length under the membership of Doomicus returning with Arahn Evil and new members Snow (drums), Cuto (guitar) and J.L. (bass) was recorded in the winter of 1993 and eventually thawed out in February 1996 via Chilean label 'Picoroco Records'. Despite its very limited edition, Hibernum in Perpetuum enjoyed fairly good distribution in Europe, and formed the basis for a new deal with 'Conquistador Records'. Another membership change with Mayhem taking over guitar from Cuto and Anganamon taking over bass from J.L. then occurred.The ensuing album, Dragonflight, stepped into a new level of Doom featuring the technical dexterity of the epic European sound, as well as the classic black metal elements and look. Dragonflight arrived in the spring of 1999, and signified a decisive step forward for the band.

2002 would see the release of Somewhere Beyond The Mist and a complete new line-up behind Doomicus (now as Doomicus Stardust) and Arahn Evil featuring Blinder (guitar), Warhammer (drums), Astralis Domina (keyboard/piano) and Aegir (bass/acoustic guitar). Within a year the re-release of their first album Hibernum in Perpetuum was issued on a double CD containing their 3 demos, split-LP '93, live video and live & studio bonus tracks through 'Conquistador/Supernal Music'. Also a new album, Self Confidence, with a new approach toward grim-pagan Metal full of raw and epic-obscure sounds and a complete line-up change with Evil gone and Doomicus recruiting Frost (guitar) and Kaeffel (drums) followed.
