Biography

There are at least two bands, who share the name “Crematory”.

1) A German Death Metal (early), Gothic Metal band formed in Mannheim, Baden-Württemberg, Germany in 1992.
The German Crematory broke up in 2001 and reformed in 2003 to release the album Revolution, a largely progressive effort which brought the band into more accessible/techno-metal territory than ever before.

Their sound has often been compared to early-Sentenced, Fear Factory, and Dark Tranquillity. The band received its earliest recognition in the mid-1990s by touring with My Dying Bride, Tiamat and Atrocity. Much like the latter two groups, the band had begun as traditional death metal, then evolved with an industrial music and gothic metal musical direction on later albums. The band would receive heavy rotation on MTV Germany, and would also make appearances at various extreme metal festivals, including Germany’s Wacken Open Air in the years 1996, 1998, 1999, 2001 and 2008, in addition to inclusion on Nuclear Blast compilation samplers.

The band re-signed to Massacre Records in 2006 after a 10 year stint with Nuclear Blast; Massacre had been the band’s first label.
Active for almost 20 years (with a brief split between 2001 and 2003) they are among one of Europe’s longest running bands affiliated with the gothic metal genre. (source wikipedia.com)


2) A Swedish Death Metal band formed in Haninge, Sweden in 1989.

    Wow, the german Crematory is absolute fucking garbage. Their early albums are pretty unremarkable too. Only the Swedish Crematory is real.

    Crematory (Ger) demo and first album are damn fine slabs of death metal for those who have ignored them due to what they are known for now.

    True! These albums are the acme of Gothic Metal - perfect atmospheric beauty, talented musicianship and poetic lyrics. But this charm is almost lost in the later albums... Even so I thinк the songs from the upcoming release sound promising,
