In the Spring months of 1997 the band grew in the brains of Martin Wiese and Florian Dammasch, two 17-year-old guys, crazy for music. Enchanted by the fantastic fantasy-black-metal sounds of the Austrian gods and armed with 12 years of playing the piano and several other instruments, as well as with a striking talent in creating music, Martin decided to compose a kind of homage to the art of Protector and Silenius. Florian became something like a „manager“, as he felt responsible for the project and was a part of the enterprise since the beginning. Due to Martin’s skill in realizing imaginary ideas and inventing bewitching tunes, the first song „An Myrrddhin“ was soon finished... both lads looked for suitable lyrical concept for the undertaking. Finally they decided do adapt some poems relating to the legend of King Arthur and Merlin the Magician. The moniker „ENID“, based on the name of the most beautiful virgin during Arthur’s reign, was chosen in May 1997. Two other songs, namely „Broséliâwnd“ and the instrumental piece of music called „Enid“ were soon finished, too. Wishing to reveal the inspiration for ENID’s music, Martin covered SUMMONING’s greatest song ever, „The passing of the grey company“ – this song was integrated in to the concept of the songs composed so far as „Nahe Avalon“. Completed with an introduction entitled „Satan & Candida“ these four songs constituted the first release. The „Enid“ demo tape with a playing time of almost 30 minutes was released at the beginning of September 1997. Within a few months 200 copies were sold to several distribution services (Last Episode Productions, Perverted Taste, Elven Witchcraft, Ketzer Distribution...), the tape was enthusiastically reviewed by some fanzines. Fascinated by the high quality standard of „Enid“, the owner of the German demo label „Fog of the Apocalypse“ and former guitarist of DUNKELGRAFEN, Lord Asgaqlun, offered the release of a 7“ EP on his label
