but this short lived band will always be remembered for their "Der Sonne Abgewandt..." demo that was released in 1997.
The demo was recorded in February - April 1997 at Core-Studios and offered four amazing tracks of melodic black metal similar to the early works of Gehenna and Dimmu Borgir.

Violent Fury was an American death/black metal band that formed in 1992, and offered a blend of heavy death metal, 
like older Deicide and Morbid Angel, with a touch of extreme forms of black metal.
The band hailed from the Syracuse area of Central New York and through 1992 to 1995 they released six demos, participated on many compilation albums and played live with a variety of bands including:  
Deicide, Cannibal Corpse, Obituary, Fear Factory, Incantation, and Vader. 
Violent Fury was supposedly working on new material that would came out as a full length and would combined 
new tracks with some older re-recorded ones but still nothing has been released or heard from the band.
