During 2003, they went through some lineup changes, replacing Aldrahn, Zweizz and Czral.
"Dødheimsgard" is a contraction of three words: Død which means 'death', heim which means 'home' and gard which means (at least in this context) 'realm'. A natural translation into English would be "Realm of Death".
