The story of Faethom begins in the ghoul-infested town of Cochabamba deep in the heart of Bolivia. Co-founders David Diacrono
and Mariela Muerte joined their dark talents to mix that which they most love: Horror and Heavy Metal. Terror tales written by Mariela
eventually became songs. Mariela and David relocated to Fort Lauderdale, Florida where they shaped up the sound of would later
become Faethom in the next few years.

Mariela and David recorded a 2 song Demo in 2008 and enlisted the talents of Argentinean bassist Federico Vidal and Californian
drummer Thomas Wittig for the live experience. This lineup played the first live show on November 14th of 2009 at which they
released a 5 song EP titled “Lullaby for Heathen Spawn”. Thomas parted ways with Faethom in 2010 and the band reunited with
Colombian drummer Hermes Reyes, who had started practicing with the band prior to Thomas and also added Chilean guitarist
Fabian Lopez on rhythm.

Faethom released their first full length concept album titled “In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Unholy”, played numerous
shows across Florida, as well as the first show outside of the state in Alabama. By the end of 2012 and beginning of 2013 the
band parted ways with Fabian and bassist Federico.

In October of 2013, the remaining members released "Mark of the Devil", an EP containing 3 new songs which would later become
part of the second concept album. Mariela recorded Vocals and Keys, David recorded Guitars and Bass, and Hermes recorded
Drums. The same year bassist Matt Winters and guitarist Ken Hayward were added to the lineup and the band started playing
shows as a five piece once again.

In 2014 Ken Hayward switched to bass after Matt Winters' departure and this lineup played numerous shows including the first
show outside of mainland U.S. in Guaynavo Puerto Rico. This 4 piece lineup went on to record the next full length concept album
named "Fury of the Scorned Witch" with Mariela Muerte on Vocals, Keyboards, wind instruments, and percussion, David Diacrono
on Electric & Acoustic Guitars, Charango, wind instruments and percussion, Hermes Reyes on Drums, and Ken Hayward on Bass,
Saddly, Ken ended up moving to Seattle, WA by the end of 2015 during the mixing stage of the album, which would not allow him to
continue in the band. Bassist Marcel Salas joined the band to fill the gap and became a permanent member of the band in early
2016. Fury of the Scorned Witch was released on July 1st of 2016 and Faethom embarked on their first U.S. tour in support of the
album with SOLSTICE (U.S.A) as tour headliners the same month.

The band played shows along the likes of Morbid Angel, Raven, Taake, 1349, Hellwitch, 3 Inches of Blood, Goatwhore, Arkona,
Agalloch, Anvil, Nocturnus AD, Terrorizer, and other International Metal acts through the years and they are currently working on
booking a European tour with Solstice set to begin in early 2017.
