Started out under the name Putrid, playing gore/death-metal. Both their first demo and their first 7” EP where released under this name. In 1992 the band however decided to rename themselves to God Forsaken to better fit the new musical direction they where perusing: doom-metal. After the release of their first studio release 'Dismal Gleams of Desolation' their vocalist Mika started to suffer from hearing problems and could not continue to work with the band. The band finally disbanded in 1995 after many line-up changes.
