The idea to form a progressive death metal band was born in January 2001 and belongs to the guitarist Artyom Serdyuk. But this idea was not destined to become real until May 2002, when the basic line-up was formed. During all this period of time Artyom Serdyuk has been working under material for the future band and participating in different side-projects, by all means trying to find suitable musicians for his "child". Since the end of 2001 his dreams have been beginning to become true and he met the drummer Vitaly "Zmey" Silyuk. For some time together they have been playing covers of such bands as: Sepultura, Slayer, Machine Head, etc., and also form a thrash-death metal band Scrutator Animarum with Vasily Martyushenko as a bassist/vocalist.
In spring 2002 Artyom Serdyuk met the bassist Valery Poznyak and vocalist Mitry Molochnikoff. The idea
finally took its shape, but the band couldn't find the 2nd guitarist. The repeated auditions didn't give
the desireable results.

The decision of the band to play several covers of Death coincided with the idea of Belarussian label
Hangar 18 to issue a Tribute to Chuck Schuldiner. In the end of June 2002 Deathbringer entered the
studio and during 5 days recorded 3 covers: Without Judgement, Crystal Mountain and Voice of the Soul.
According to preliminary information there was almost no time left to send the record from Grodno to
Minsk and the band didn't even manage to do the mastering. Deathbringer took the recorded in a hurry CD
to Minsk, but after several months it turned out that this tribute wouldn't see the light at
By April 2003 the band had finished working under material and entered the studio to record the debut
album. Meanwhile, the question about the 2nd guitarist was still actual, and to their first concert in
May 2003 Deathbringer invited a session guitar player Sergey Kovalenkov.
By the beginning of 2004 the band had come to a stop in the recording, because of the low quality of the
equipment in the studio. Deathbringer managed to record only one track Keeper of Pain, which they
used as a promo.
The band concentrates on the concert activity. On the 27th of May 2003 for the first time they appeared
beyond the bounds of their native town Grodno in Massa Brutto fest 4 in Minsk with the bands
like: Divina Enema, Rasta, Evthanasia, Imprudence, Ossuary, Sontsevorot and Dying
