History

This Danish death metal band was formed in Silkeborg in 1992. A demo called Incapability On The Cross appeared in 1993 and another, called Instincts, the year after. The band's sickness soon helped spread the message and shows with Invocator were arranged. The Danish tattoo label Progress signed the band and had the band also appear on the Fuck You, We're From Denmark compilation. The debut album's cover artwork was soon censored and the label reported shipping the album's first pressing of 3,000 with a vomit bag.

Reviews

INFERNAL TORMENT - BIRTHRATE ZERO - DIEHARD
While some may remember the Danes' debut of two years ago as a brutal death metal album graced with a classic cover and hindered by a lack of originality or distinction, everyone should note that this album is different. This is death metal paradise. Having lost the sick and deviant feel of the debut, the band has compensated with a crushing and hard hitting album the likes of which comes along only every so often. Brutal vocals which crisscross the styles of the sadly missed Illdisposed and even Kataklysm lead the way, while the well-produced musicians crush through a clearly superior mixture of tight speedy rhythms, blasting drums and solos which rival anything James Murphy can imagine. The vocal patterns sure resemble Kataklysm's though. Yet, the bottom-line remains the ultra-heaviness of songs like The Razor Twist and Race which bludgeon the listener into believing. The album closer Fuck The Whales sure comes over as weird, with its Iron Maiden-ish sounds, but overall any death metal fan without this deserves a spanking. One hopes that these guys don't wimp out. "The diametrical opposition to Brit pop." Ali "The Metallian"
