Obitus was formed in May 2000 by Anders Ahlbäck (Waning) and Johan Huldtgren (who were also members of the thrash/death metal band called Vaticide which later would morph into Clonaeon). That summer a demo MCDr, Coup De Grâce, was recorded and released. The demo was received very well and got acclaims for its brutal and uncompromising sound. Obitus next endeavor was to appear on 4-way split, Gather Against Humanity, with usbm hordes Kult ov Azazel & Humanicide as well as French Thy Lord. After countless delays the split was finally released on Christcrusher Productions.
