The idea was formed between 2006 - 2007 by Matt "Winterdemon". After looking for members to form a Black Metal band without any luck, and already having music written for later what would become his first release "Gates To Eternity". He decided to continue going solo, thus creating Darkened Winter.
Recording followed over the next year, compiling 6 tracks for the demo release of "Gates To Eternity". Which was released in 2009, Around 50 - 100 home made copies were released and given out free around his hometown of Adelaide, South Australia. Aswell as posting a few interstate / overseas.
Shortly after writing began for the second release "Raiders of Northland". This is the album and the turning point in which Winterdemon finds the sound and direction musically he wants to take, 6 tracks were compiled also for this release and was released in 2010. Again around 100 - 200 home made copies were released and given out for free throughout his hometown. This release picked up some attention and saw tracks played on various radio stations in Australia & overseas, as well as a write up review in the Italian black metal magazine "Black Mass".
After a year break, 6 new tracks had been compiled and the third album "Rise of The Pagan flames" was released in 2012. Only a few copies were released of this album, and it was mainly made as a digital download on the internet to make it available to more people. This album received positive reviews by various internet sites, Aswell as been played on radio stations in Australia & overseas.
2013 saw the release of his fourth album, "Yggdrasil: Journey Throughout The Nine Worlds". Which took 2 years to complete and 11 tracks were compiled for this album. Due to its length (01:30:00) It was released over 2 CD's. This year also saw the launch of the online store Winterrealm, working with independent distributors from overseas. All albums could now be made available worldwide, aswell as merchandise.
This album received positive feedback, resulting in interviews / reviews from various sites. As well as radio play overseas and here in Australia.
Winterdemon also put together the all Australian Black Metal compilation "Terra Australis - Vol 1" featuring some of Australia's rising underground black metal bands.
