Peaceville Records[eedit | eedit soorce]

Efter wirkin wi Hell Awaits an Abstract Emotions for their previous productions, the baund decidit tae send copies o the personal recordins for their Red Shift album tae different record labels, includin the independent record label Peaceville Records.

The Breetish label wis ane o the first tae respond positively tae the recordins o the album an decidit tae sign the baund for three editions. Efter the first 1,000 copies wur sauld, they went aheid an recordit a seicont edition tae give the record a wider presentation.

For the simmer o 2003, the baund haed awready plans o makkin a new production, but the release dates for My Dying Bride an Katatonia new albums, scheduled preliminarily for Juin o the same year, caused a delay, so the record label decidit tae give the baund mair time tae prepare for anither release. Durin that time, the baund continued performin live in different shows an festivals wi baunds such as Cradle Of Filth.

Split-up[eedit | eedit soorce]

The offeecial split-up occurred in 2007 efter their tour wi Type O Negative when the baund postit on their myspace page, in a way tae say guidbye tae their fans, a blog entry that they namit "Farewell Asgaroth" in which they statit their decision o brakin up.

Efter the split-up, the baund decidit tae post on their MySpace steid twa first stage pre-studio demos tae anticipate the unreleased upcomin album o the baund.
