Tristitia is a Swedish doom metal band formed in Halmstad, Sweden in 1992 by guitarist Luis B. Galvez. His devotion for Doom Metal and sorrowful melodies brought him to form the band with Death/Gothic style singer Thomas Karlsson and Harri Juvonen on bass. They recorded their first demo in April ’93 entitled ”Winds of Sacrifice”. In January ’94 they released their second demo ”Reminiscences of the Mourner”. The receiving of this demo was even better than ”Winds of Sacrifice” and gave Tristitia a record deal with the French label Holy Records.
