A long time ago in Bethlehem so the Holy Bible says, Mary's boy child Faeces Christ said "Fuck this carpentry shit, I wanna play Black Metal". And thus Skuldom, New Zealand's longest serving Black Metal band, was formed. Hark now hear the angels sing... It’s first line-up had Faeces Christ on bass and vocals, Femondoetus screaming and a session drummer. The first demo “An Earth Born Dark… And So It Shall Die” was recorded in 1998. It featured two songs – “Flamespawn”and “Shadowsphere”, which is still played live today.
