ABHORRENCE (FINLAND)


In 1989 One of Finland's earliest Death Metal combos. The Helsinki group, operating in a proto Death-Grind style, was founded by the erstwhile DISASTER trio of vocalist Jukka 'Shrike' Kolehmainen, guitarist Kalle Mattsson, and bassist Jussi 'Juice' Ahlroth. These three would be joined by drummer Kimmo Heikkinen and Tomi Koivusaari. As DISASTER morphed into Abhorrence during 1989, the demo 'Vulgar Necrolatry' would be recorded in early February 1990. The band would sign to the US Seraphic Decay label for a single, 'Pestilential Mists' issued in July. In May 1990 the rehearsal demo 'Macabre Masquerade' was leaked to the public. This was not an official release. Its just a rehearsal tape, of which they did several to hear the sound ourselves, this particular one just got out in the wild. However, just one year after their formation the band splintered. Koivusaari had already by this stage activated Amorphis, offering Kolehmainen a chance at the vocal position, an offer he declined. Relapse Records in the USA, unaware of the demise of ABHORRENCE, offered an album contract some six months later to which Koivusaari, and Amorphis, replied.
