Lifend originated in 1999 from the fusion of the bands Haternal and Mourningstar. The thus born union was baptized My Dark Side. The band started playing covers of Moonspell, Dimmu Borgir, Edge of Sanity and Anathema but soon began to compose their own songs.
Lots of appreciated live-shows in local clubs followed as the band continued to accumulate experience.
The band felt they had reached a crossroads, so the moniker had to foretell something more direct and incisive: the name Lifend was chosen.

In 2001 Lifend's demo "Entwined Emotions" was completed and received a lot of consideration by the Italian and foreign press as well as numerous flattering reviews.

The release in 2002 of the new mini CD "Shattering Reality", showed that passion and dedication are a constant in Lifend's creative process. Yet another radical change in the band's musical viewpoint occurred in order to give more space to its live character: the new songs became faster, more aggressive and dynamic, although remaining melodic and dramatic with the addition of acoustic guitars-parts, Swedish riffing, keys and synthesizers and the use of 3 different vocals.

By the end of 2003 Lifend started recording their first full length album at Dark Design Studios, with the idea of offering it later to record labels.
So it happened that a promo copy landed on Cruz Del Sur Music's desk, caught the attention of the label, which offered the band a recording contract.
Both the band and the label came to the decision that it was necessary to boost further the production and so Alex Krull at Mastersound Studios was chosen to fulfil this desire.

An agreement was soon reached and "Innerscars" is now ready to be unleashed.
