Biography

1. Fester was a death metal band from Malmö, Sweden. Formed in 2011.

2. FESTER was founded back in ’89 and hails from Askim in Norway. This quartet of teenagers had a wish of playing hard, extreme music which described their dark inner self. It didn’t matter if it was called black, death ,doom , thrash metal, or what ever influenced by old school acts of the time like Slayer, Hellhammer,Pestilence, Obituary, Celtic Frost and Kreator. FESTER never liked being labeled , and being open to whatever came into their mind and hands, FESTER made original dark music witch no other band to this date has made anything similar to. . The band themselves describes their music as Heavy, dark, atmospheric, gloomy extreme music with touches of Death, Black and Thrash metal. Or as an old flyer said : “ Death the way it was meant to be”.
The band , especially Tiger, was heavy into the Norwegian scene from ’91. Many claimed the band being part of the “Inner circle”, though the band never got the recognition they deserved due to the music style they played. It was only pure black metal who counted, and lots of great Death/Thrash bands got lost because of this.

Despite of this, FESTER’s two demos – “ The Introduction” (’91) and “Winter of Sin” ( ’92) sold out fast, and the band received over 20 record deals(…). The band ended up releasing their debut album on the infamous “ No Fashion Records” in mid ’92. The album sold well, but due to several reasons the band made a new contract with “Lethal Records” in ’93. The band released their follow up late ’93.
