Leif Edling's band before Candlemass. According to him, "in late 1984 [they] were forced to change name due to copyright reasons. There was a chain of electronic shops called Nemesis in the [s]outh of Sweden and they threatened to sue [them] if [they] didn’t change [their] name."

Many Nemesis songs were later reworked on Candlemass albums.

Not to be mistaken with rock/hard rock band Nemesis ...
