DENIAL OF GOD (DENMARK)


Formed in 1991 by the brothers Ustumallagam (vocals) and Azter (guitar) (the only remaining members from back then) along with a drummer named Uksul. Inspired by a variety of bands and artists like Alice Cooper, King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, Death SS, Mayhem, Bathory, Infernäl Mäjesty and Hellhammer (to name just a few) and everything related to horror, Satanism and the occult and supernatural, the band starts writing their first early material. This material ends up on the band’s first demo tape entitled ”Oscularium Infame” which is released in summer 1992. Meanwhile a bassist, Kulmar, joins the band. Being recorded simply in the rehearsal room on a tape recorder and at a such an early stage, the sound turns out bad and the playing is anything but tight. The demo is loved by some and hated by many, but shows a band that does not care about the current trends at the time and are going their own way, musically as well as lyrically and even image-wise. Followingly the band plays its first 2 shows of which the latter takes place in Sweden. Already at these concerts the band gains a notorious reputation for their onstage antics, which include the use of living maggots thrown at the concert audience. Kulmar leaves the band and is replaced for a short time by Nomos, but he is thrown out of the band for lack of dedication and skills, so the second demo ”The Dawn of Aemizaez”, this time a real studio recording, is recorded as a 3-piece. The demo is followed by a massive amount of interviews in underground magazines around the world and Denial Of God gain a lot of reputation. ”The Dawn of Aemizaez” is still considered by many to be one of the best demos from that period in time.The line-up is again completed by a new bassist, Fargel, and with this line-up they record their first 7” EP ”The Statues are Watching” for the Italian label Maggot. The Statues are Watching” (b/w a re-recording of ”The Dawn of Aemizaez”) is released in a limited edition of 1000 copies and is immediately sold out from the label. Being impressed with the band’s work, the UK based label Dark Trinity Productions signs the band for the release of a mini-album and a full length album. The recording of ”The Ghouls of DOG” begins.
