Cor Scorpii was formed in late 2004 after the death of Terje Bakken, the lead singer and founder of Windir. At that point, Gaute Refsnes implemented the long-standing idea of creating his own band. The band’s first demo, Attergangar, was released in 2005, receiving much praise from the musical critics and fans and winning the Demo of the Month award from the Metal Hammer Germany magazine. In July 2007, the band commenced to record its début full-length album, Monument, which was released on March 26, 2008. The band is now releasing it’s long awaited second album “Ruin”, set for release on Dark Essence Records June 15 2018.
