Swedish death metal outfit Godgory was formed by vocalist Matte Andersson and drummer Erik Andersson (no relation) in 1992 as that rarest of animals, a death metal cover band. After honing their chops for a couple of years on the likes of countrymen Entombed and Grave, Andersson and Andersson began working on original material, and the resulting demo landed a deal with the German label Invasion. Their 1996 debut album, Sea of Dreams, displayed a more progressive, Gothic sound than their early influences; the follow-up, Shadow's Dance, appeared quickly later that year with an entirely new backing cast of studio musicians. Godgory jumped to the Nuclear Blast label for their third album, Resurrection, which appeared in 1999. ~ Steve HueyPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
