Agatus was formed in Athens, Greece 1991 by Eskarth the Dark One (lead vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards) who was soon joined by his brother Archon Vorskaath. Both are also members of the band Zemial which is more Vorskaath's project, while Agatus would be Eskarth's. Rehearsal tape in 1992 was the first, unofficial recording. In 1993 their debut demo "Night Of The Dark Ages" was recorded at the Molon Lave studio in Athens.
Zemial’s debut album For the Glory of UR was recorded in 1995 and released in 1996 by Greek label Hypervorea (later Black Lotus). In 1997 a rehearsal for what was planned to be the album NYKTA was recorded on a 4-track machine, with Vorskaath on drums and his brother Eskarth on guitar. With bass guitar and vocals overdubbed this was released as a demo for the album titled Necrolatry. Despite various recording sessions from this era, Zemial's output became limited as Vorskaath gave more time to his brother’s band Agatus and co-founded two new projects: Alpha Centauri and The Watcher. However, in 1998 Zemial recorded their mini -LP "Breath of The Pestilence" in Germany with famed Thrash metal producer Harris Johns tour and they toured Europe in 2001.
