Realm formed in 1985 in Milwaukee. They released two underground demo tapes at first; Perceptive Incentive in 1985 and the landmark Final Solution in 1986. In 1988, the band signed to the up-and-coming Roadrunner Records label and released their debut album, Endless War, later that year. The album featured a classic cover version of The Beatles' song "Eleanor Rigby" that they converted into speed metal form.
In 1990, Realm released their much anticipated second album, Suiciety. It contained a more unique progressive sound than the band's earlier releases.
After fulfilling their 2-album deal with Roadrunner, the band searched for a new label. They recorded another album's worth of material, but it remains unreleased to this day. In 1992, Realm disbanded.
Endless War and Suiciety were digitally remastered and re-released worldwide under the Metal Mind Productions label in 2006 and in 2007 in the United States.
