Avatar - Memoriam Draconis

Belgian/Flemish Black Metal act incited by drummer Azagdaimon, Avatar first emerged with their 'The Emperors Of The Night' demo. Vocalist Daemas quit forcing Occulta (a.k.a. Jeroen van Gorp) to both play guitar and sing. Switching Anjelen to guitar as well, Avatar pulled in female bassist Hyberia just prior to inking no less than two record deals with Belgian companies Wood Nymph Records and Shiver Records. Avatar shared stages in Europe with Cradle of Filth, In The Woods and Dimmu Borgir.
The band resurfaced in 1998 sporting an all new line up. Alongside longstanding members vocalist / guitarist Jeroen van Gorp and keyboardplayer Ivan Op De Beeck , Avatar introduced Klaartje Keppens on female vocals and bassist Stijn Buys.
They recorded a new album but it was never released.
Shortly after, they recuited Chris Heylen on drums, who was playing drums in 'In de Schaduw' at that time.
Again the band wanted to change musical directions, this time in a more 'Sisters of Mercy' kind of way and went on for some time under the name 'The Avatar' before they split up.
