Winterthrall began writing and rehearsing for the recording of their first demo during the fall of 2003. The result of that labor was Autumn Caskets: a dark and aggressive piece of black metal that held no shortage of melody and atmosphere. The demo was well received and as 2003 went on, the band kept busy with a non-stop schedule of local and international shows.
December 2006 saw the release of the first full length album “Nightmares for the Sleepless” on the bands own Murderous Dark Records. With a new addition to the line-up guitarist Josh Standifer.
At the end of 2008 they re-entered the studio to record “Stormraven”, an epic doom-laden prelude album to their next full length “Within The Church of None”.
