Formed in 1996, in Barnaul, Black Forest gradually expanded to an 8-piece Death/Doom band that was very much influenced by My Dying Bride's first album, most notably apparent by the predominant use of violin in the music. They recorded a single demo in 1999 - covering a mixture of deep growls and clean singing, as well as a balance between slow and morose sections with aggressive Death Metal outbursts - and split up during the following year, just as the demo was generating label interest.

|The two original founder members, Artyom Demidov and Andrey Dobrychev, were responsible for Black Forest disbanding, when their desire to pursue a brutal Death Metal course proved incompatible with most of the other band members' wishes. They went on to form extreme Death Metal band Selfautopsy.|
