Formed in late 2009 by vocalist, Andrew Botto. The band was originally a black metal jamming/recording project for Andrew and Sebastian Iwanowicz called Tjernobog(later Orias). Going through a long hiatus period and rebirth the band was renamed Emrys by Botto in early 2013, transitioning away from the traditional sound of the early Scandinavian black metal scene of the 1990s into more of modern melodic death metal style. Also in 2013 the band welcomed in new drummer Mark Stainthorpe. The name "Emrys" is taken from the legendary Welsh wizard, Myrddin Emrys. Commonly known in folklore and the Authurian Legend as Merlin. Currently the band is working on its first demo/EP which is self titled with a hopeful Winter 2013 release. In mid July 2013 two new guitarists were brought aboard. Still unnamed officially the announcement is expected soon.
