Midnight Odyssey was officially formed in early 2007. Originally from Ipswich, west of Brisbane, Dis Pater, began writing black metal oriented music in 1999, and home recorded many songs between the years 2001 and 2007.  Though these recordings were never officially pressed (and never will be), they led to a creative output that would eventually cement itself as Midnight Odyssey.

Dis Pater has taken influences from a wide range of music, from black metal, doom metal, neo-classical and dark ambient music, electronic music, classical/early music and folk. Some bands highlighted by Dis Pater as major influences include Bathory, Burzum, Emperor, In The Woods, Gehenna, Limbonic Art, Katatonia, My Dying Bride, Dead Can Dance, Tangerine Dream, Arcana, Lycia, The Sisters of Mercy and The Cure.
