After two demos: Revenge (2001) and Incitement (2003), in 2004 the band signed its first agreement with Steelheart Records and recorded the debut album New Era pt.1.In 2006 Derdian was contacted by the American label Magna Carta that proposed an agreement for two albums: New Era pt.2- War Of The Gods and New Era pt.3- The Apocalypse.
In 2013 the band decided to leave the fantasy genre and to deal with the most current issues of the human society and the album Limbo was the result of this new approach and it had such a broad international consensus that won a distribution contract in the East with the Japanese Spiritual Beast. In live shows the band doesn’t use any kind of backing tracks. This lets Derdian play their music without barriers and frippery.
