Dämmerfarben was founded under the name Schattenwindes Dämmerfarben in 2005, primarily as a solo-project.
In 2006 the demo “Des Herbstes Trauerhymnen” is recorded. After releasing the demo-EP, the name was shortened to Dämmerfarben.
In 2008, the project was expanded with some members and became a real band. In 2012 three new musicians joined the band. They also performed on the album “Herbstpfad”, which is a slight turn toward a more folky approach.
