Suffering Souls was founded by Tobias Micko (Lord Esgaroth) and Michael Sepulveda in October 1994. The band was previously called “Dismal”.
After a line-up change the band was renamed Suffering Souls and played their first gig in the same year.
The first songs were created by the band in 1996, which resulted in the release of the bands' first underground demo "In the Moonshadow of Despair".
In December the band recorded the song "Dark Angels from the Funeral Abyss", which was destined for a planned EP which was never released.
In 1998 the band released their first official demo "When Silence Cries Eternally", limited to 666 copies. Shortly afterwards, two new songs destined for another EP were recorded. But the deal for this EP was cancelled because of financial issues with the label.
Three new songs for the MCD "Cries of silence" were recorded in the Majestic Nightrealm Studio in 1999.
Besides some live gigs, the band was in the studio again for the Debut-Album "Twilight Ripping Souls Apart" in April 2000. This was released by Painkiller Records from Belgium.
Darkwind Records released the second album with the title "Incarnated Perfection" in 2003.
There had been various line-up changes during the years. From 2004, Mastermind Lord Esgaroth has been writing new material and signed with Schwarzdorn Productions in the beginning of 2009.
The third album "Sadistic Goat Complex" was released at the end of 2009 and got a very good feedback.
Lord Esgaroth began to work on new songs in the following year. In 2018 the recording for the fourth album “In Synergy Obscene” was completed and the collaboration with Schwarzdorn Production continued.
