After 2 years Vahid Esfahani & Arya Arjmandi decided to assist in a metal band, based on negotiation with Ali, and then with the approval of all, starting Mordabís activity was confirmed. Vahid was a bass guitar player and Arya , as an electric guitar player, and started workiní in their own position . After a while, Pedram joined the band as a drummer and in the winter of 2004, Mordab restarted its work .In the summer of 2005 , after locating a proper place , the bandís members started practicing and preparing their demo album (first) and then official album (2nd).
After making Mordabís official website , 2 songs were written and recorded as a demo , which were presented for downloading in the form of industrial ( no vocals).In march of 2006 , Arya separated from Mordab and the bandís activity was stagnant due to a lot of problems .In the summer of 2006 , with joining of Arash Eivani (creator of the band ìnecrophilia since 1997) to the band as a lyric man and vocals & back rhythm guitar player , Mordab is passing its own path more professionally and seriously.

MORDABís 1íst demo album did stimulate many peopleís applaud ! and was d.l.ed from everywhere , all around the world .
In the first days of 2007 , Pedix abandoned the band due to private problems and became the most significant reason of not presenting live concert . meanwhile , one of demoeís song was remastered and remixed .At the beginning of 2008 , Mordab was prosperous with the 2índ album - Darker Than Grave which proved our music to be more professional and authentic . The album was recorded in an equipped studio ( specialized to metal music ) belonged to one oí our dude which successfully covered our 1íst demoís weak points in terms of sound quality and etc.
Darker Than Grave consisted of 6 songs in the genre of Progressive Death Metal , absorbing the energies of our fanís appreciation and like our 2006 demo , that Hell encircled one psychotic and depressive song intrinsically .
After our second albumís birth , Mordab made up its mind to play and rehearse the songs lively, so Arash Moghadam joined us as a drummer for the likely ní forthcoming live concerts , and we started practicing in the studio to feel the increment and progress of our adroitness ...
As we were passing the last days of December , Mordab and two Iranian metal bands were invited to Metal Front Festival which was an annual festival for metal bandsí live concert , taking place in Republic of Armenia . The exact date was on December 26 and 25 , 2008 .
More than 13 divergent bands from miscellaneous european countries such as the Netherlands , Russia and Republic of Armenia were invited to the aforesaid festival , and it was Melechesh at the top oí the list which was dazzling the eyes . That concert was indeed our first live , and in fact our first experience which we accomplished very well and acceptable . Mordab was the second band (after Melechesh) according to the votes & reports , and the festival managerís Aramazd- declaration .
Arash Moghadam was not able to accompany us in Metal Front Festival due to an accident , so Koryun Boobikian gave us his almighty hand as the best drummer of Armenia . Again ní again we long to gift our purest acknowledgement to this buddy.
In 2009 , Mordab decided to create the third album more professionally , and Shahin Jebelli joined us as a permanent drummer . Our forthcoming album (third album) will be published with a label and a company and sponsor will be definitely supporting us .
