The name's source: Emeth = True, Justice (in Hebrew).
Emeth was formed back in October 1997 in Belgium, by some people who weren't completely happy with the bands they played in. The motivation and dedication to do better quickly led to several releases and the opportunity to play multiple live-shows. After having experimented for a few years and hereby seeking a musical identity with the inevitable line-up changes, some members wanted to evolve into a brutal unrelenting death metal band. Due to these musical differences the band parted ways with most of it's original members.
