Tephra is a band from Braunschweig, Germany that exists since the end of 2003. Before they formed Tephra, all the members played in various local bands that were musically quite diversified. Consequently, they bring many different influences into the band. Tephra has developed a unique atmospheric sludge metal sound from these varied sources.
Their first release—as a four piece band—was a self-produced Demo CD with 4 songs.
At the beginning of 2005 they entered the studio to record their first full length Tephra which was released via Riptide Recordings in March 2005.

While constantly touring for their debut LP through all of Germany and Europe, they started playing some new songs that incorporated keyboards, samples and a fifth member.

In March 2007 they once again entered the studio to record their sophomore album, entitled A Modicum Of Truth. It was released in October 2007 by Riptide Recordings.

At the end of 2008 they went back to being a four-piece, due to the job related departure of their keyboard player.
After spending the last two years writing new songs and playing a few selected shows and festivals, the band entered the studio in September of 2010 to record their 3rd album called Tempel. It will be released on February 18th, 2011 by their new label Golden Antenna
Also a split 7” with Omega Massif was released by Cyclone Empire in November of 2010.
