Noumena was founded in Ähtäri, Finland in the spring of 1998. In 1999, after two demo tapes and several concerts, the band was given a record deal with a Singaporean record label. Their debut album was recorded later that year at Astia Studio; however, the record label went bankrupt before the album was released. It wasn't until late 2001 that an Australian label, Catharsis Records, agreed to release the album, given the title Pride/Fall.
The following years were unproductive, until, in January 2004, Noumena released a four-track promo. This was moderately successful and led to a deal with Spikefarm Records. The band spent the next October and November making their second album, Absence, which was released April 13, 2005. On November 1, 2006 they released "Anatomy of Life" through Spikefarm Records. The album received praise from Metal Maniacs for being, "...another confident step in turning Noumena into Finland’s biggest new export.” Earlier the same year they released the EP "Triumph and Loss" which was only made available online. Currently they have created their own label (Haunted Zoo Production) under which they have launched their last two albums, Death Walks With Meand Myrrys.
