In 2003, CARACH
ANGREN ("iron jaws") is formed in the southern
regions of Limburg (NL). The band chooses a
classical, storytelling approach in the broad
genre. Symphonic arrangements on keys
characterize the bands sound as it is the
perfect underscore to the storytelling element.
No separate songs, but a complete concept is
worked out on "The Chase Vault Tragedy". On
their first demo, CARACH ANGREN pick up on the
story behind paranormal causes in a 17th century
Barbados and, in their unique way, bring it to
life through lyrics and music.
The fascination for the paranormal resurfaces on
the following release "Ethereal Veiled
Existence". A remarkable story told in 5 songs.
The strange occurrences around one of the most
spectacular photographs of a ghost ever taken
are the basis for this mini CD.
In early 2007, CARACH ANGREN haunts the halls of
MADDENING MEDIA who hereby decide to grant abode
to the Dutch wraiths in order to be enchanted
instead of being cursed.
The recording for
"Lammendam", a concept album around the ghost of
a lady in white, is done in July/August and
November 2007 an released in April 2008.
CARACH ANGREN instantly impose themselves as the
premier dutch black-metal act, with an exploding
number of fans and concerts across Europe.
In August 2009, CARACH ANGREN re-enter the
TidalWave studio to record their sophomore
shocker named "Death Came Through A Phantom
Ship", an album of naval terror and elemental
fright which was to be released on February
