Fear Leader (2014) and Hubris and Nemesis (2015).
2016 saw the release of their first full length album,
Advocatus Diaboli(DG Records) and a video for
the single 'Goddess'. Their unique sound has terrorized and enthralled fans at Death to Miami III, Deland Metal Festival, Black Kvlt Fest II and while providing support for Moonspell, Skeleton Witch, Turisas, and Thy Antichrist.
