Pretenders to the title of ‘Sweden’s heaviest band’, Stillborn formed in 1988 and comprise Henke (vocals), Kim (guitar), Henning (guitar), Sam (bass) and Peter (drums). The description of their sound was given to them by Sweden’s biggest-selling newspaper after their Scandinavian tour of 1992 as a reference to their powerful live authority and doom-obsessed lyrics. The group was originally started as a quartet in 1988, and Necrospirituals quickly established their abrasive, threatening sound. Expanded to a five-piece unit by 1990, that year’s Permanent Solution was a more polished but still powerful effort. A great deal of press and broadcast attention followed, which was enough to persuade Roadrunner Records to license the record throughout Europe. State Of Disconnection was just as brutal as previous albums but saw the group penetrate the international market for the first time, with excellent reviews appearing in US metal magazines as well as their European equivalents.Portions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
