Blackmoon) in 1996 (the year he left Dark Funeral).
Infernal started off with three recordings in the form of their self-titled EP debut in 1999 on 'Hellspawn Records', Summon Forth The Beast EP (2002) now signed to 'Hammerheart Records', and the Under The Wings Of Hell split CD in 2002 with Dark Funeral, a platter that contained the entire contents of the self-titled Infernal debut.
The band would split in 2003 and reform in 2008 to release The Infernal Return EP (2010) and Under the Hellsign compilation (2018).
