Atmospheric black metal band MATER MONSTIFERA rose in the end of the summer 2000. The original line-up was : Yvor - guitar, backing vocals & programming, Destructor - vocals and Jitka - keyboards. Not long afterward, Astral Vampire joined the band on lead guitar. At the end of the year, MATER MONSTIFERA recorded and released their first demo named "Svice Zivota". After the release the band focused on supporting the material by a range of shows and the style of the band took more concrete shape - atmospheric black metal with substantial support of keyboards.
