The story of Faethom begins in the ghoul-infested town of Cochabamba deep in the heart of Bolivia. Co-founders David Gomez and Mariela Muerte joined their dark talents to mix that which they most love: Horror and Extreme Metal. Terror tales written by Mariela became songs. Mariela and David relocated to Fort Lauderdale, Florida where for the next couple of years they focused on recording the music to their debut concept album with Mariela handling vocals, lyrics and keyboards and David handling guitars, bass, and drum programming.
Many obstacles presented themselves which delayed Faethom from really taking flight. However, by the end of 2009, they enlisted the talents of Argentinian
bassist Federico Vidal (Gaia), and Californian drummer Thomas Wittig (The Phalanx, Ends of the Earth) for the live experience. Due to personal reasons, Thomas had to leave the band and was replaced by Colombian drummer Daniel Reyes(Molech).
Faethom has been performing at several venues across Florida since November of 2009 to promote their self-released EP titled “Lullaby for Heathen Spawn”.
The band is on the brink of releasing their first full length concept record titled “In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Unholy.”
