Biography

Demigod is a death metal band that was formed in August of 1990 in a little town in Finland called Loimaa. Demigod’s first studio demo Unholy Domain was recorded in December of 1990. That tape gained a huge success in the underground circles around the world. It also came out as a split album with the Finnish band Necropsy in 1992. In the spring of 1992, the band signed up with the Spanish label Drowned Productions, later changed to Repulse. The band played many live shows in the early 90’s. Around the same time the music style underwent a slight change towards a more aggressive and thrashier direction. After that, they recorded two very tight promo tapes in 1993 and 1994. Despite the good response from the fans and also the press, the band split up temporarily.

After a relatively short silence, Demigod starts to rehearsing again. In the early 1998 the members decided to awaken the slumbering Demigod, and after some difficulties and setbacks they signed a record deal with Spikefarm Records in 2001. After that, Demigod has finally finished recording their second album Shadow Mechanics. The album includes songs easily spanning the last ten years in Demigod’s history. Some songs are actually written back in the early 90’s.

    Fuck, I just can't get enough of Slumber of Sullen Eyes. One of the best DM albums ever.

    I haven't decided whether I love or hate these guys. Moments like As I behold so I despise and Transmigration beyond eternities show the band are talented musicians, but like most Finndeath and Swedish death metal it all blands together in a tuneless monotone bland of blasts and inferior riffs. These guys are an exception to this at moments, but they just aren't as interesting as Incantation or any other USDM band for that matter.

    Dark Tranquility/general melodeath fan calling Demigod overrated, that's quite a compliment.
