Информация о группе
The band was an outlet for the members at that time to musically profess their love for Carcass and grindcore in general. After losing and gaining several members, a relatively stable line-up was found for recording their first demo (and the following one), "Erosive Offals" in March of 1990.
Later, the same demo was re-recorded at the "legendary" Sunlight studio, this time with new lyrics and titles, called "Pestiferous Anthropophagia".
After this Rickard left the band and Grant was once again in the band.
A rehearsal demo was recorded shortly after this, and in November of 1990 their EP, "Necrology" was recorded, also at Sunlight studio. With the 11 minutes of music on the EP the band gained quite a following.
Despite this, the band called it quits shortly afterwards. The EP was re-released on CD in 1993 by Relapse.
Resurrected for a short period in 2000, the remaining band members found it hard to gain a stable line-up, but did record a track for the Carcass tribute album "Requiems of Revulsion".
After a couple of more years of inactivity (which by this time seemed to be a trademark of the band) Joacim teamed up with Sayyadina bassist Andreas Eriksson to record some demo tracks on the computer. The results were promising, so they invited Grant back to sing.
Adde Mitroulis of Birdflesh and Jigsore Terror fame was asked if he could play and he readily agreed.
This line-up recorded the split CD with The County Medical Examiners. After this, Andreas left the band and Glenn Sykes of Regurgitate was brought in on bass and Johan Wallin of Scurvy/Repugnant was brought in for guitar and vocal duties.
Thus the line up is more stable than it has been for a long time and ready to unleash their trademark gorecore upon the world both live and in the studio.
