Banner day for new adds. Was able to get off ebay and add four new ones - Disease Infected, Animistic Evil, Pregasm and Melancholia. The Pregasm tape sounds a bit like early Napalm Death. That's got to be an insanely rare tape. I did end up buying that Piss record I mentioned above. I'm trying to get a USB tape deck - might have to record that and get a second opinion. Kind of doom-y but it might fall too much on the drone-ish side - so I'm not adding it for now.

I've heard Alesis is a good brand for USB decks, but seeing as I don't own one, I can't comment. If you find one you'd recommend, do post it, please.

Haven't checked on this thread in a while. Nice to see those tapes were actually metal.

Anyway, I was looking for a release without a track-list and came upon someone's sale list that had a few bands not here.
http://darkpast.forumfree.it/?t=12800638&st=150
He's not very good with genre classification since most of the stuff listed as black metal that isn't here is ambient, but here are a few likely candidates

ETA CARINAE
Spoiler: show
(Ita) - Conte,pt & Melancholy (Black Metal)
Tape
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Pna_rr ... QcLyoXHxOg
Azublazu -- All Vocals- Lyrics -- Bass
Antonino Lo Nardo -- All Guitars
Michele Assennato -- Drums

This one could be added right now, but the demo has no definite track-listing. It might be out there if someone wants to go look. I can't find anything. Feel free to add it, track-list or not. It's not really black metal, but melodic death metal.

Submitted!


GRENDEL'S CAVE (Ita) - Decadenza Demo Tape 1998
Interview describes first 3 demos as death metal with influences
http://www.geocities.ws/azrielkris/iillogo.html
http://www.metalhammer.it/interview.asp ... -cantante/
Review mentions them:
http://www.perkele.it/index.asp?pag=recensioni2&id=3041

This is the previous name of http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Illogo/62274
The interviews/reviews make it sound like it would be the same as Illogo. I can't find samples to verify this, though.


AUTOMORTE (Ita) - s/t (Black Metal) Demo Tape

Cannot find any information on this one at all. Could be black metal, could be something else. Something to keep an eye out for and maybe contact the guy about. His e-mail: blasphemousart [at] libero.it

I've actually had 9 or 10 that I've found from that original Canadian dude that have been added. He's a goldmine of rare tapes. Unfortunately, he's breaking my wallet but I like it. I have a box of tapes at work - maybe 30 of them to go through and I'd bet there's another half dozen or so to add. Have to find the time to get to them though.

Last post from that guy above seems to be 2011 - but I'll request a list of what he has, see if he's still selling. But that's also from Italy - which likely means very high shipping - paying more for shipping than the tapes themselves is not something I really can deal with. But I don't know that I've ever gotten anything from italy before, so it's worth a check.

Submitted Eta Carinae without a track list. I searched high and low, and while I can find a number of sites and archived pages that show the four tracks of the demo, none of them seem to offer up a definitive tracklist. Some sites show three tracks, some show four, and most have no numbered listing for the tracks.

All of these lack actual samples to verify the music, though any sort of further information is welcome:

Added. Apprentess
http://www.discogs.com/Apprentess-Headl ... se/5781672
This band was submitted by lunaboy at some point, who allegedly owns a copy, but -charming person that he is- he refused to share samples. If anyone else has this record and/or is willing to provide music or at least a description of it, please speak up.


Added. Sado
http://www.musik-sammler.de/media/1094487
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/LOADER-SADO-A-BO ... 1568076811 (this is tagged as a bootleg on m-s.de and apparently a "split" with Loader)
Described as heavy metal/avant-garde, but no samples anywhere.


Not metal. Haunted Child
http://www.musik-sammler.de/media/1094308
Apparently a band formed by some members of Solar Eagle. I only found this, but that song doesn't seem to be on the album (it says (c) 2010 too...)? Album title is spelled a bit different. Would be a mighty coincidence, but maybe another band? Perhaps someone could contact the uploader.


Added. Skorbut (Deu)
From Hesse, this is not the same band as the one from Berlin. I came across it while updating ex-guitar player Oliver Gerke's page. They have at least four CD releases (I have photographic proof for that). He described the music as "experimental heavy metal/prog", but was unwilling to send me samples because one of the ex-members is ashamed of the band nowadays (going so far as to attempt to acquire every single last copy and destroy it -_-). Tried contacting their old drummer as well (a certain Christian Persch, now in Mesmerized), but so far no response. I doubt posting this here will help, but... doesn't hurt either.

I messaged the guy on youtube. I'm assuming it's the same band because he seems to be credited on the demo (Rydell instead of Riddell, though). Maybe it was an unused track and the (c) 2010 came from the year he uploaded it?

EDIT: Either way, the uploader is in a band that is probably acceptable here, :lol::

I bid on another copy on ebay.

My wallet hates you. Now I have another guy I have to buy from. Why can't you find someone in the US for me. Shipping from Sweden is going to cost an arm and a leg. Any idea what user he is? I suppose I could just ask him. He's put a link to MA on all his pages so he's someone here.

Bought:
Repent - two of the guys from Mors Principium Est - surprised this isn't on here yet and not blacklisted either. Very curious.
Kahn - though it's listed as Grind so we'll see if it's metal enough.
Abomation - listed as thrash.
Gothic Lethargy - listed as Gothic/Doom


Bidding on:
Surson - cover looks metal enough.

Interesting but didn't buy:
That Empryia Demo isn't on here but I'm not buying it either for 8 bucks.

I'm going to have to ask him about Mine is To Suffer before dropping 12.99 on that guy.

He's got Sonic Temple up there - the tape is called "Hell Yeah" - and he lists it as black metal. I'm skeptical there and not willing to spend $12.99 to find out.

Morfeo - not sure I trust this being metal - could be some black metal, could be some ambient shit.

I'm not bidding on Grimorium - though there might be enough in the picture to add this without purchase. I'll bring it up in the mod forum.

:lol: Last time it was a seller in the US, I ended up with a bunch of ambient tapes. Also, I forgot to post here, but I am bidding on the Morfeo one because I have a little bit of spare cash (but not enough to buy him out :(), so it's good that you didn't. Bring on the ambient shit, I suppose.

I was suspicious of the Sonic Temple tape as well. If it wasn't for the bright and colorful "Hell Yeah", haha.

No idea about his user, though. Maybe he could be talked into adding the Empyria demo.

His prices are pretty reasonable at least. I just get fleeced on shipping. I struck a nice bond with the Canadian dude and we do a lot of business but at 12.99 or above i had to limit it. This new guy has some nice rare stuff though. Like truly rare.

I asked him about Sonic Temple and his response was "don't buy it, it's shit." Haha. I won't ask him about Morfeo since it's your money and you've bid anyway. :)

Wanna submit Nonexistent?

theunrelentingattack: Yeah, I wish I had the money to buy all the rare tapes from him. What did he say about Mine Is to Suffer? The guy in that band has an artist page here already.

Azmodes: About Haunted Child, he confirmed it was the same band and gave me more info, trying to get samples now. He said there were more demos, so maybe that's where the song came from. I'll pm you when I learn more.

You can submit Nonexistent, if you want. If not, I'll submit it when I get the time. He also has another band:
http://www.reverbnation.com/demonspeed
Kinda shred-heavy, but I think it'd be metal enough for here. It's a digital release, but it does have a fixed tracklist:
https://myspace.com/demonspeed/music/songs
and cover: link

I also got both the Sado CD and the Morfeo tape. I'll rip Sado and post here when it arrives.

Didn't get a response on mine is to suffer - maybe he missed that note. We sent a few. Paid yesterday so I when I get mine I'll listen and add.

Great news. I've added Nonexistent (hope I got the genre right...). Checking Demon Speed now.

EDIT: Added. erm, could you maybe ask him if he went under the alias "The Axe" in Solar Eagle? Not quite sure if that's him right now, but on the Demon Speed FB it says that he used to be lead guitar player for them.

Sado:
goodbye link

128 kbps because hail Satan. Quick post because short on time, possibly okay for here but really iffy at times. Submit it if you think it's okay.

Morfeo is also some kinda synthy goth/doom stuff. It's honestly pretty good. I'm not 100% sure about it, though. I'll rip it when I can.

Sounds acceptable, added. Prog/heavy or prog/power or something like that.

They, uh, are from the US, right? Music sounds like it, at least. :)

The tapes finally arrived from Sweden today - will have to get listening - after I smash the cases to pieces as the duck tape he used to keep them all together melted onto the cases and half of them are glued shut. :)

Edit:
Gothic Lehargy listed as "Doom/Gothic Metal." - Not remotely metal. All keyboard driven goth, not metal in the least bit.
Repent - Mors Principum Est members. Certainly not melodic death like that band - more straight up heavy metal. I've added them.
Durson - nice pure Death Metal. Added.
Kahn - good short piece of grind/death - added.

Here's another one if someone wants to buy it. Depressive black metal, so have fun with that!

Etonedicius - Baiulus
http://starvedrelations.bigcartel.com/p ... ius-bailus
TUA bought it

Done. I'll listen to it when it comes. DSBM is my expertise, so I'm down with that.

That ebay seller discounted that Mine is to Suffer tape, so I bought it. I'm going to have to digitize it and get a second opinion. It's absolutely terrible but might actually be metal. But if it is, don't know what the hell to call it. It's got a slight death metal vibe to it, maybe a little groove metal but with terrible clean vocals. Extremely tough listen.

Heh, tough listen sounds fun, actually. Did the Etonedicius tape ever show up?

Anyway, I'm slowly getting around to submitting bands that I have info for, but in the process of submitting Nattfrossa, I came across two that would be good candidates for this thread/further research.

Somber (Sweden)
Death metal or Melodic Death Metal
Released "Dragonfly" and "Dragonfly / Daybreak"

Nattfrossa recruited their drummer for a period of time, but it seems like they could be added here. Nattfrossa's website describes them as melodic detah metal, while the others just say death metal. There might be a review or something out there on the internet for it if someone wants to look

Info:
http://www.rockdetector.com/artist/swed ... olm/somber
http://www.discogs.com/Somber-Dragonfly ... se/4227823
http://nattfrossa2.tripod.com/history.html

I think I found enough to submit

----------------------------------------------

Out of Hand (Sweden)
Gothic Doom Metal (possibly)
Released "A Dream"

The rockdetector link for Somber mentions one of the members later forming this band and releasing "A Dream" describing it as gothic doom. A review I found says it's doom metal or dark rock and compares it to Type O Negative and Bay Laurel. I'm not confident that this would be enough to submit it, but maybe there are samples out there somewhere. Damn these common band/album names, makes googling rough.

http://www.rockdetector.com/artist/swed ... olm/somber
http://www.angelfire.com/az/zablogma/demorev.html
submitted

----------------------------------------------

There's also a band called Omen from Sweden that's probably metal, but I can't find anything other than a mention in Nattfrossa's bio and that the drummer was called "Henning Stonehammer of Belial." I'm surprised Somber isn't here yet, so maybe something is wrong with them. In any case, I'll try to look more into these when I finish the rest of my submission, but I don't have much time lately.

Etonedicius just showed up Thursday - like a month and a half later. Frankly, I didn't remember it was part of this string. I'll listen Monday.

Well, good. I was worried I got you ripped off. :D

I submitted Somber. I was able to find enough info. Apparently the demo was for sale on Neseblod. I should really go through their list one day and pick out bands that aren't here.

There was a note in it that said "sorry for the massive delay," at which point I thought to myself - "what the hell is this package." I really need to start tracking my orders better.

I guess it's better to forget about it than worry about why it hadn't showed up. Glad to see it was metal enough. That's one more off the list.

Since I had free time, I went through neseblod's demos. Around 1700 bands and only 2 that I could add with easily available information. Such a great idea. I wrote a script and narrowed it down to around 250, but it still sucked.

Anyway, here are the ones that I could not confirm as non-metal or typos with some notes if relevant. I just listed the band names, typos included, so you can just ctrl+f here for release titles since I'm lazy.

Spoiler: show
Akeron
Allegro Rubato
Almost Funeral
Phlegma
Arktogaa
Avadon
Aya
Black Leather Metal
Burn By Tears
Descolation (typo, Desolation, should probably be mentioned in Desolation Squad's notes that this release exists)
Dimension Frost
Einar Grimm Band/Group (this and next 3 bands probably not metal)
Pussycunts
Depressive Carrots
Kardinal
Epidemic Spit
Evil Kebab
Excubitor
Face The Reality
The Gargoyles
I Ruinerna Av Mig Själv http://www.screammagazine.com/modules.p ... start=1460
Jesus Fucking Christ
Lord Of The Grief (Lord(s) of the Grief: http://www.musicmight.com/artist/sweden ... +the+grief )
Madam Flora
Menadel
Mortorigis (probably not metal, mentioned here https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ococea/1 ... =page_info )
Mystical Noise
Nightflight <- no idea what this is, doubt it's metal, seems to be titled Night Flight / Eden and the songs are by different people, I think
No Place To Hide
Plutonium 239
Psalm=1
R.a.s.
Scurvs http://hardmusicbase.cz/index.php?stran ... &id=0&m=63 review says something about grind and brutal death metal? Google translate sucks
Sewer Disgust
Shadow Minion
Stanka
Stealer Of Souls
Thelmno
Tstragramaton http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Tet ... aton/22502 probably this band but I have no clue
Umbraged
Waricide
Wedan
Windquest
Winter Night Overturn
Wynter
Wyver (split with Mortifer (Sweden), so probably black metal)
Åkes Orgasm


EDIT: Found info for Ildkrig!
EDIT2: Gothony submitted
EDIT3: Bleed Me Tears submitted
EDIT4: Shadow Dancers shouldn't have been in the list, oops
EDIT5: Vidvandre was added
EDIT6: Made individual post about Asmorod because demo here not metal.

Skorbut (Deu)
From Hesse, this is not the same band as the one from Berlin. I came across it while updating ex-guitar player Oliver Gerke's page. They have at least four CD releases (I have photographic proof for that). He described the music as "experimental heavy metal/prog", but was unwilling to send me samples because one of the ex-members is ashamed of the band nowadays (going so far as to attempt to acquire every single last copy and destroy it -_-). Tried contacting their old drummer as well (a certain Christian Persch, now in Mesmerized), but so far no response. I doubt posting this here will help, but... doesn't hurt either.

If anyone cares, after further inquiry, Gerke was kind enough to send me some samples after all. :np: Pretty weird stuff indeed, but it's metal. Entry will follow soon.

I've been thinking about ordering some of those cheaper neseblod tapes, Wynter being one of them but shipping to the US is flat out insane - certainly trustworthy is he says it's metal but for those without description - not going to take the chance for how expensive this is going to be to get them.

I'd do some more research before committing to buy. I didn't do much more than a few google searches to see if there was a typo or if they were listed anywhere, so there might be more out there. Wynter looks good, though.

Don't buy the Gothony tape, by the way. It just got posted online. I also didn't list it, but I bought the Arisk tape from somewhere else pretty cheaply.

@Az, heh, I'm counting it as a win for this thread even though you did everything. The Haunted Child guy hasn't replied about selling the tape, by the way. :(

I might try my luck myself. Can you PM me his email or his Youtube account?

Regarding Apprentess, Antioch managed to dig up a video of their bass player Tom Bettini (later of Jakyl fame) talking about his personal history as a musician. He mentions the band at one point, describing them as "hardcore metal" ("hardcore" as an adjective, not the punk genre, given the context/intonation). There's also some photos included of the band playing live, which look, well, pretty metal. Yeah yeah, I should know better, looks being deceiving and all, but might be worth considering taking a leap of faith here...

Well, for those early heavy metal bands "hardcore metal" sounds more promising than simply "heavy metal" because of all the rock bands lumped in. lunaboy wanting $600 for it is wild, though.

Arisk and Morfeo both turned out to not be acceptable here. Not sure what to call Arisk but it was simply guitar without distortion. Morfeo was closer, but was mostly symphonic with metal bits thrown in. Only about 1/3 of the demo was metal.

I'm currently going through Ekeroth's Swedish Death Metal, specifically the band list in the second half, cross-checking stuff with MA. Made it to the F's and I already came across some entries missing from MA that may warrant further research. Once I'm done, I'll post a more complete list, but for now here's two I found particularly interesting.

Cerebral Death (page 321)
"What would it sound like if some teenage kids from a boring suburb of Stockholm wanted to make some kind of deadly version of heavy metal in the late-90's? The answer is Cerebral Death."
Not too sure what to make of that genre description, perhaps it's just heavy metal with harsher vocals? Groove/death? Something weird like Arkhamin Kirjasto? :P Ekeroth consistently uses "deadly" as "death metal-ish/-like". A demo titled To a Better World (1998) is given, but no lineup. Obviously/probably(?) not the listed band from the Netherlands. I asked Porman about them and at first he said the demo is unreleased as far as he knows, but apparently he confused them with another band. He'll ask around. Approached Drowned as well and he's never heard of them and couldn't find any info in his old tradelists either. I was unable to find anything about either the band or the demo online, except for Ekeroth's book. EDIT (11-11-2015): Porman talked to Ekeroth himself and the latter said he doesn't have the demo nor can he remember his source for the entry in the book. :( Still, I'll keep this open here in case someone has anything to contribute.

Added. Epitaph (page 342)
From Västerås, possibly formed in 1989 and apparently neither of the two Swedish Epitaphs we have listed. Ekeroth describes it as "thrash/doom [..] some kind of doomy metal" (he also makes no attempt to hide his poor opinion of the music's quality). Drummer Johan Burman's old website calls them doom metal and you'll notice that he and two other members later also played in Miscreant and Powerage. Haven't been able to find a connection for bass player Carl "HYB" Andersson. Ekeroth gives a Demo (1990); Burman as well, but self-titled (the entry is accompanied by the note "Currently on cassette only, a re-release on CD is planned for later this year"). Weirdly, in his disco section, Johan Burman shows the same cover for this demo as the one for one version of the Blasphemy demo by Dark Abbey (some old drawing of two monks). Dark Abbey later became one of the Epitaph's on MA (from Sollentuna, Stockholm), but Ekeroth stresses not to mistake this band with the one from Västerås (and the tracklist given on Burman's site is totally different as well, not to mention that neither location nor lineup compare). The Dark Abbey cover is also pictured in Ekeroth's book (page 285), clearly attributed to the Sollentuna band. It seems pretty clear that the Västerås Epitaph existed in some form, a teenage band that may or may not have managed to circulate a demo-tape. Some pics and descriptions here and here. The email on Burman's site is dead, but I'm pretty sure I found him on Facebook and have sent him a PM. The cover thing is peculiar, but may be just him... mixing up a detail of his own band with another? Guess it's not to be ruled out.


Ekeroth's book seems pretty legit, from what I've seen/been told, but I also noticed that there are a few mistakes and discrepancies (ex. he combined Adversary and Adversery into one entry). I'm also not sure if he really distinguishes between releases and recordings.

So I actually found someone who owns that Epitaph tape and got photos of the inlay (thanks, Death_Vomit). See here. As you can see, those two monks are indeed on the cover, which is fucking weird if you consider that another Swedish band from around the same time, that would later change name to Epitaph, also released a demo with that drawing as a cover. Since it looks like the Västerås Epitaph demo came first, maybe Dark Abbey liked the drawing so much that they used it for their demo too? uuuh, and then decided to take the name as well, while the Västerås band was still active (Burman says he and Andersson left in 1991, so it was probably active 1989-1991)? I don't know, this is really giving me pause, heh. Anyone have any theories? Or is that sort of thing nothing to write home about in the various old school demo scenes? I mean, it's not an original drawing and a reverse image search reveals it to be an older (19th century?) "stock" image, but still...

In any case, the band looks good to submit otherwise, I'm just waiting on a tape rip from Death_Vomit at this point (though he confirms the various descriptions -and quality :P- so far).

Damn, you work quickly. But yeah, that's pretty weird. If you look closely, the Dark Abbey one is slightly cropped compared to the Epitaph's, so that adds a little to the theory that they copied it. I don't really have anything to add, though. Their logos are kinda similar, too, but I guess they're both just really typical.

I scraped some more lists:

Finished with Swedish Death Metal, here's the list of bands not on MA, excluding Cerebral Death mentioned above. Page number in parentheses, followed by the given location and style:

Abominate (304) (Strömstad, "gore-grind")
- Abominate (demo, 2003)
2000's band. Considering the generic name, this is probably not the same band as the one from Uppsala we have listed. Perhaps not metal enough, Ekeroth says they should put some more death metal into their music.

Angel Goat (308) (Angered, death metal)
Probably no releases, Ekeroth says he doesn't know if they ever even officially recorded anything. He cites two song titles regardless: "Black Mass" and "Damnation". This guy played the bass. Rest of the lineup: Miika Salmela (guitars), Juvonen (drums), A Juurika (guitars, vocals). According to Drowned, to his knowledge, they never released anything official.

Bloodlust (316) (Fjälkinge, death/thrash metal)
- Demo 1 (demo, 2004)
I was wondering if it was the same as Bloodlust, but was told by the latter one's ex-drummer Pontus Norman that it's probably a different band. His Bloodlust was definitely from Sotenäs, not Fjälkinge. Ekeroth lists a single (known?) member, "C Lindell". Chris Lindell? Christian Lindell? Note that the MA entry has "The Bloodlust" as a logo, but Norman implied that they were never called that (he was only with them for a short while, though, and wasn't sure). Perhaps The Bloodlust belongs to Ekeroth's band? Or a third band? Or just a naming variation/logo addition for the Sotenäs one? Also note that both bands' demos are from 2004, maybe there were really two but only one released the demo and it was mixed up with the other by Ekeroth?

Compos Mentis (323)
Absolutely no information given, Ekeroth actually asks the reader to contact him if they know anything.

Devour (334) (?, brutal death metal)
Formed in summer 1997 by two teenagers named Fredrik (bass) and Jan. Other members are Jari S (vocals, or is this actually Jan?), Patrick (guitars, vocals, 2001-) and Jimmy (drums, 2001-). No releases given. "Brutal" might just be an adjective, dunno.

Devoured (334) (Stockholm [Hägersten], death metal)
Formed in 1989, allegedly played a style of death metal with a lot of different stylistic influence. Ekeroth can't remember if they made any demos. Lineup: Victor (drums), Matte (vocals), Stefan (guitars, 1992-), Micke (bass, initially guitars)

Disenterment (335) (Mora, black/death metal)
- "Metapsychosis" (demo, 1993)
Formed in 1992, this guy played the drums. The band had previously been added by Drowned, but was deleted again because the demo remains officially unreleased and was only dubbed on tape by Shamaatae on request (no idea how often, but Drowned has a copy). Not sure if this can be considered a valid release. Also, the title may actually be Metempsychosis.

Euphoria (343) (Uppsala)
- Demo 1997 (demo, 1997)
It's from Uppsala and that's all he knows. Same as this one?

Spoiler: show
Gods of Obscurity (351)
- The Abyss of Coloured Tears (demo, 1994)
Little info given and ignorance professed, but it seems pretty obvious that Ekeroth made a mistake here, as this is actually a release by a band called Gardens of Obscurity. Funnily, he lists Gardens of Obscurity as well, without mention of that demo.


Added. Harmageddon (353) (Uppsala, death/thrash metal/hardcore?)
- Rather Be Dead (demo, 1994)
The cover of the demo-tape is also pictured on page 288. Appeared on a sampler. Another release on Discogs, this is very likely the same band; the lineup in the book is consistent with the one on Discogs. Genre seems ambiguous, but I contacted the guy who added it and he said he's going to send me a digital rip of the EP soon.


Headless (354) (Avesta, death metal)
No discography given. Stefan Sohlström played guitar. Rest of the lineup: Jonny Lejonberg (guitars), Leif Forsell (vocals, bass), Staffan Dickfors (drums)

Infuriation (362)
No discography given. L-G Petrov was on vocals. Only other member given is a certain Ulf Cederlund. According to Drowned, to his knowledge, they never released anything official.

Morbid Lust (377) (Lund/Staffanstorp)
- Rehearsal (1986)
Existed briefly in 1986, doing a few gigs and one rehearsal. The book isn't very clear about the latter, might be unreleased and/or just a recording session. Their drummer Valentin was later recruited by the Obscurity from Malmö. This guy on guitars and vocals, other lineup: Micke "Muh" Jönsson (vocals), Anders Hansson (guitars), Folkesson (bass)

Morgh (377) (Piteå)
- Ashes of Disgrace (demo, 1992)
Ekeroth says he's not sure when the demo was released.

Necropia (382)
Existed from 1996 to 1998. Ekeroth doesn't think they ever released anything. I've sent a FB message to guitarist Niklas Svärd (now in Terror 2000), asking about the band. Other linuep: Riad Haddouche (vocals, bass), Kristofer Örstadius (guitars, listed as Orstadius), Jonas Gagner (drums)

Added. Redrum (Kiruna, death/thrash metal(?))
- Murder Industry (demo, December 31st 2000)
1. When the Nightmares Comes Haunt You
2. Faith of Religion
3. Dead by Faith
4. World in Chaos and Fire
5. Experimental Desires by Death

Not mentioned directly, but through a later version, Annihilation on page 309. Ekeroth lists the demo above for Annihilation, but the cover art on MA had the name Redrum on it, as well the notes saying "First demo, very bad sound quality. By this time Annihilation were called Redrum." So I deleted it and am now wondering how and if it was released.


No releases. Vulcania (419) (perhaps from Malmö based on connected bands)
- Burn the Cross (rehearsal, 1984)
Allegedly "ultra-obscure" band which existed 1983-1984. Again, not too sure what "rehearsal" denotes here, perhaps no real releases. Lindhe played guitars, he's now in Obscurity from Malmö. Sent them a FB message. Other lineup: Dennis "Anti" (vocals), Ola Püschel (guitars), Kvidde (drums)
EDIT: Okay, I spoke with Lindhe and he said the rehearsal existed only on one copy and he has no idea where it is.

Warmonger (420) (Nynäshamm, doom/death metal)
- Warmonger (demo, 1998)
Late-90's band, described as "doom/medieval/death metal [that] sucks". Probably not the same as the listed Warmonger from Landskrona. Ulf Johansson is the only cited member.

No releases. Zinc Organ (421) (Stockholm, "death/fusion")
- Pleasure of Revenge (demo, 2000)
- Alive with Worms (demo, 2001)
Started in 1998. The band was blacklisted in 2013 by Doomsday, citing "no releases" as the reason, so maybe those demos are unreleased/bullshit. I've sent him a PM. Lineup: David Segerbäck (vocals), Ponta (guitars), Johan Hallander (bass), Anders Olsson (drums); past members: Jocke (guitars), Stefan (guitars), David Lichter (guitars)

Woah, sick! I'll see if I can find anything. I'm going to steal the way you formatted this for the next posts I do in this thread.

The MA band's website was still in the links on v1 and it was http://thebloodlust.info.se, so I assume that's where the "The Bloodlust" logo came. Internet Archive's images weren't saved to confirm that theory, though.

EDIT: Their myspace has "the" in a logo on a photo:
