The first album from Dismal was released in November 1998 for Pagan Moon Records, titled Fiaba Lacrimevole – like a red bleeding rose in a glacial desert. This debut album was an immediate success and soon it became a top selling album for the Label. In September 2002 Dismal signed a long term deal with Aural Music Group, co-founding Dreamcell11, a division of Aural Music in order to follow and to promote the band artistically and commercially.
Within the end of 2002 the band entered the Gulp Studio by Marco Calliari to record their second Album titled Rubino Liquido – Three Scarlet Drops… using a 12-elements orchestra. Described as a mix of claustrophobic and essential drum parts, waltz and tango mixed with baroque and orchestral sound.Miele Dal Salice is the third album released in 2006, the band dedicated a lot of time to this record, full of bizarre and intense tones.
