October 1995 : The “Nihil Negativum” demo is released. The band plays some gigs in France to promote this demo. His theatrical and neo-expressionist performances definitely confirm the band’s reputation into the French underground. 1200 copies of “Nihil Negativum” are sold.

1997 : Anorexia Nervosa signs with local label Season of Mist. The first album, “Exile” is released, produced by Stéphane Buriez from French band Loudblast. The band plays a lot of gigs in France with bands such as Cradle of Filth, Sup, Enslaved, Opera IX, Absu, Misanthrope, etc.

Early 1998 : Two members leave the band because of some musical divergences. Two months later, RMS Hreidmarr (vocals) and Mr Xort (synths) take over from them.

February 1999 : After one year spent working on new stuff and studying classical composing technics, Anorexia Nervosa signs with cult metal label Osmose Productions. Straight after, the band records a new provocative and ambitious mini-cd, “Sodomizing the Archedangel”.

 

September 1999 : Anorexia Nervosa is on tour in France with Norwegian act Immortal.

March 2000 : The new album, “Drudenhaus”, is released, recorded at Drudenhaus Studios, the band’s own studios. Fans and press reactions are all very good, Anorexia Nervosa becomes one of the most famous French Metal bands.

Late October 2001 : “New Obscurantis Order”, the long awaited third album, is released again on Osmose Productions, after more than three months of recording at Drudenhaus Studios. This new opus is certainly the most ambitious French Metal release ever.
