In 2002, Cornelius Jakhelln began working on a new band. The name chosen was Sturmgeist (Stormspirit in German), and the band plays an experimental style of black/thrash metal with lyrics sung in English, Norwegian, and German about Germanic folklore, war, and recitations of Goethe poetry. On January 24, 2005, Sturmgeist released their first full-length, entitled Meister Mephisto on the record label, Season Of Mist.


In support of the album, Cornelius acquired the aid of various musicians including Asgeir Mickelson of Borknagar and Spiral Architect fame, for a small European tour. The band played six shows in France, Belgium, England and Scotland, supporting the black metal band, Carpathian Forest.


Starting in October, Sturmgeist began recording their follow up to Meister Mephisto in Børge Finstad's Top Room studios. The band was now no longer a solo band, with John "Panzer" Jacobsen, guitarist on the tour, now filling the position as an official guitarist in the band and Anti Christian of Tsjuder, Grimfist and The Cumshots fame playing drums on the new album. The album is entitled Über, and was released on October 16, 2006, through Season Of Mist in Europe, and October 17 in North America.
