Death Metal Demo History


Welcome to a new category of Voice of Reason: The Death Metal Demo History! What you will find here is some rambling about a few of the most legendary Death Metal bands, bands I grew up with in the late 80s / early 90s. You know, back then I was constantly listening to all the cult bands that appeared on the then young Death Metal scene, bands like Nihilist/Entombed, Grave, Dismember, Malevolent Creation, Dr. Shrinker, Nirvana 2002, Macabre End, Suffocation to name a few. Also the tape trading scene was pretty big back then and so there were always new bands to discover. Those were exciting times, and sometimes I miss those days. So much good music came out and so many cool bands put out demos and then made it onto a label or - in other cases - disappeared.

As these times had a huge influence on me and my musical taste, I thought it would be cool to present you some of my favourite bands of those times when they were still in unsigned. Hopefully you enjoy this section, and I'd love to hear from you what you think about it!
