ALGAION (SWEDEN)


The Swedish black metal band Algaion was formed in the early autumn of 1993 by Mathias Kamijo and Mårten Björkman who had been playing together for several years in another band called Abemal. Mathias had felt that the music he wanted to make didn't fit the concept of Abemal and therefore he formed Algaion as an outlet for his own musical ambitions. In October they recorded a demo containing the tracks "On The Reach Of Zaphonia" and "...And With Darkness I Pierce Him". This demo was released in only 30 copies of which one happened to end up in the hands of Jon at the American label Full Moon Productions. In the spring of 1994 they recorded the track "Kratos" for a compilation tape called "Drap" which was released by Nattfursth of Sorhin. The summer of 1994 Maring;rten spent in Florida together with Jon at Full Moon Productions. The two of them worked out a deal and they released the debut album "Oimai Algeiou" in November of 1994 after several recording related delays.
