Deathbound formed in 1995 under the name of Twilight. They released two demos under this name entitled Twilight and Melancholy of Northern Landscapes. After this, they changed their name to Unbound and released another demo entitled Flames of Madness. A further name changed saw their name finally stick on Deathbound. Under this name they released one more demo entitled Elaborate the Torture. This saw the band sign to Woodcut Records and release their first album, entitled To Cure the Sane with Insanity.
