The Nanga Parbat project was born from the idea of the co-founders Flavio Cicconi (Dragonhammer, Souls Unchained, Shores of Null - live guitarist) and Edoardo Sterpetti (Souls Unchained). The two begin in November 2017 to elaborate their debut album giving life to the Nanga Parbat project. After more than a year of songwriting, in December 2018 the band sees the entry of the singer, Andrea Pedruzzi (Zenit), and the process of writing and composition of the full-length named Downfall and Torment is completed. Long time friend of the band, Enrico Sandri (Karnya, Utopia, Kaledon) joined the band in early 2019, filling the vacant role of the bass player. Giulio Galati (Hideous Divinity, Master Boot Record, Nero di Marte)  joined the formation just as the recording process was about to begin, adding his personal twist on every drum track on the album.
