Anael was formed in 1999 by [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Primeumathon]Primeumathon[/url] (drums) and [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Seraphackh]Seraphackh[/url] (guitar/vocals). Their first gig was in May 2000 as a twopiece. Their first demo, "Into The Dark", was recorded in September 2000 at "Rape Of Harmonies" studio. [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Amauroptavir]Amauroptavir[/url] was recruited to play bass.
In September 2001 they recorded a Split 7" with [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Buried+God]Buried God[/url], called "[url=http://www.discogs.com/release/748559]Eye Of The Sleepless[/url]", which was released in March 2002 by [url=http://www.discogs.com/label/Hatespawn+Incorporated]Hatespawn Inc[/url]. Also in September 2001, they recorded the "[url=http://www.discogs.com/release/748550]Infernal Devotion[/url]" EP, which was released in March 2002 by [url=http://www.discogs.com/label/Sombre+Records]Sombre Records[/url]. Melechtonior took over the bass for [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Amauroptavir]Amauroptavir[/url] for some live gigs in 2002. In late 2002, [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Angel+Of+Doom]Angel Of Doom[/url] took over the bass for Melechtonior, and the band entered the studio in December 2002.
Their Debut album, "[url=http://www.discogs.com/release/699843]Necromantic Rituals[/url]", was released in March 2003 by [url=http://www.discogs.com/label/Barbarian+Wrath]Barbarian Wrath[/url].

More live gigs followed.
In 2004, [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Angel+Of+Doom]Angel Of Doom[/url] left, so [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/SM+Daemon]SM Daemon[/url] replaced him on bass, and Incarnator (guitar) joined the band.
