One of Turkey's oldest black metal bands The Sarcophagus was formed by Burak Sümer in 1996. At the beginning of 1998 the band released their first demo “Pagan Storm” which was a brilliant sample of classical black metal. The demo was distributed by distros/labels such as Moribund Records (USA), Folter Records (DE), Pussy God Records (CZ) and Lynch Distro (TR). In 2000 the band entered the studio to record their self released promo album “Infernal Hordes of The Ancient Times”. This promo highligted the success of the demo and drew the attention of BM fans from all around the world. “Infernal Hordes of The Ancient Times” was to be the last work of Sarcophagus showcasing a more melodic black metal style. During that period the band played a number gigs and festivals. In 2009 Niklas Kvarforth from The Shining and Ozan Yıldırım from Raven Woods joined the band and The Sarcophagus signed with Osmose Productions for a 7'' ep “Hate Cult” and the debut album “Towards The Eternal Chaos” was released, The new style showed a great progression away from their early sound.
