Disma was initially founded in 2005 by Bill Venner
The intent was to create a heavy, doom-laden death metal band with dark overtones.
In 2007, Bill contacted his old friend, Daryl Kahan to join as a second guitarist.
During this early period the duo began (de)composing their first compositions and arrangements which laid the groundwork for what was to come.
Drummer, Shawn Eldridge joined along with bassist, Randi Stokes in 2008.
Vocalist, Craig Pillard joined Disma later that year, completing the line-up.
Over the following years DISMA has released one demo, three 7” Ep’s and a full length album, with a second full length album in the works.
In 2015 Daryl Kahan left Disma to concentrate on Funebrarum and Citizen’s Arrest
In 2016 Disma parted ways with drummer, Shawn Eldridge. He was replaced with new current drummer, Craig Smilowski (Gorephobia, Immolation, Rellik)
The band is now focused on writing new material under this updated lineup change as well as playing some shows.
In Jan 2019 DISMA has parted ways with Craig Pillard
