USER NE was formed back in october 1996 by Hils Ver III║ getting in touch with vocalists Bossu Morbious El Toerante y Xalen D Kharnash. Hils Ver III║ wanted to make a fussion between epic literature and extreme Metal, so he joined the two vocalists. Bossu and Xalen were already friends because they already performed in other bands before.
After this union they started to write songs to record what was their first demo. Hils Ver III║ took over the bass duties, Bossu did vocals, drum programming and samples and Xalen just vocals. After the recording and thanx to a meeting between Xalen and Ashkar, this one joined the band as keyboard player, making of this a stable line-up for two years. After various months of writing and rehearsing, the band recorded a new demo, with the same songs as the first one, but in a much better way.
During these two years, many musicians joined and left the band until in mid 1998, Ol Sonuf Vaoresaji on guitars and Alastor on fretless bass, joined the band, making of this a different sounding act than the typical band, because of the fact of including two bass players. With this line-up, the band entered the studios to record "N´belum Das Uh÷rt", the first album of USER NE, in November 1999 until February 2000. During the recording sessions, various musicians joined them such as Jows (bagpipe), Auxiliarum Cristianorum (soprano), Epino (vocals) and Kyrtan (crossing flute), completing the album. Right after the recording, Ol Sonuf Vaoresaji and Alastor had to leave USER NE and it was then when Trollberg (guitar) took over their vacant place.
By mid 2000, "N´belum Das Uh÷rt" was release by the young label War Is Imminent Prod. The album was released on digipack format with a miltimedia track including the video-clip of the song "Ofendor's Clan". Later, the label, owned by the editors of the magazine of nazi and racist ideology (well hidden by the Black Metal image) Black Light and Unholy Cross Dist., resulted being rip-offs that not only fooled the band, but they aldo didn't do any promotion of the album and did a nonexistent distribution.
Due to schedule problems, Auxiliarum Cristianorum, Epino and Jows left the band, but later El-Zam˙ (drums), ZreeOclok (clarinet), Debog (bagpipe) and Annah (soprano) joined the band. It was then when they started to prepare themselves for live sets and it wasn't until 2001 when USER NE offered their very first live performances, playing in cities like Madrid, Murcia and the participation on the prestigious Rock Machina festival. At the same time, USER NE started to write new stuff for their second album.
In February 2002, the band entered the studios again to create "Tarantos". The recording, mixing and mastering proccess took four months, after which, Anna left USER NE to concentrate in other personal musical projects and the band recorded their second video-clip with the song "Nivel Um Cix".
In September 2002 the band started to deal with various labels for the release of "Tarantos", and it was Xtreem Music (ex-Repulse Records) who finally signed USER NE for the release of this work scheduled for January 2003. Now the band, stronger than ever, is ready to strike the extreme Metal underground with their unique style.
