2003: - The Sickening was founded by guitarist Markspist (ex-Slagmark) & drummer Beist (ex-Slagmark, ex- Blood Red Throne). They got some other members to complete the band: Stig (Violated, ex-Slagmark), Hans (Violated) & Ola Langli (Panzerskrekk).
But due to other commitments, this line-up did not stay alive. - Over the next few years, more dedication was put into this and it was decided by Beist & Markspist that once again they wanted to make The Sickening into a full-time band. 2007: - The band became a full quartet with the addition of Stjernestøv on vocals and Neeraj on bass. - We recorded our first demo "Soiled Rotten" at Concrete Studio with Espen "Dr. Rock" Pedersen (Chapter in Hate, ex-Breed). -
We started playing gigs to promote our demo. 2008: - We did lot more gigs, playing most major cities of Norway, supporting acts like Blood Tsunami, Mindgrinder & The Allseeing I, as well as festivals like Inferno Kick-off, Oslo Deathfest & Piggtrådfestivalen. -
By end of the summer we recorded our debut album "Death Devastation Decay", also with Dr. Rock and had the album mastered by Dan Snawö (Katatonia, Bloodbath). - We had our first international gig in St. Petersburg, Russia, co-headlining the Petrogrind Festival. - Neeraj had to take a break from the band due to his studies and Olve (Sodomy Club, ex-Slagmark) stepped in to handle the bass duties. - By end of the year, The Sickening signed a 2-record deal with Spanish label Xtreem Music. 2009: -
We continued promoting our material and playing gigs all across Norway, including few mini-tours with Blood Red Throne & Sulphur. As well as a Finland tour with Inferia. - Our debut album "Death Devastation Decay" was released through Xtreem Music. 2010: -
