Biography

Melbourne, Australia (1989 – 1993)

1) Disembowelment (often written diSEMBOWELMENT) is a Australian band from Melbourne, Australia that was formed in November 1989 out of the ashes of two-piece band Bacteria, featuring drummer Paul Mazziotta and guitarist/vocalist Renato Gallina. With the help of Dean Ruprich from Melbourne death/grind band Necrotomy providing session bass, the band released its first demo, “Mourning September” in September 1990.

Disembowelment played a very slow form of (with occasional bursts of great speed) that relied equally on the atmospheric effects of droning guitars and constant riffing. The band was known for its atmospheric chanting, slow riffs and spiritual dark elements present in their symphonic, heavily distorted style. They are often credited with spawning the funeral doom movement that developed years later.

In 1991, Jason Kells joined the band on lead guitar. The song “Extracted Nails” was recorded in April 1991 at Double Tea Studios for a compilation on the German label Mangled Beyond Recognition, released the following year. The compilation featured Therion, God Macabre, Rottrevore, Cadaver, Crematory, Pan.Thy.Monium, Cenotaph, Hydr Hydr.

Over the 3rd & 4 August 1991, the band went back to Double Tea studios to record their second demo “Deep Sensory Perception into Aural Fate”.
