EVOCATION (SWEDEN)


The Swedish Death Metal band EVOCATION was formed in the fall of 1991 in Borås by Marko - guitar, Thomas - bass, Jani - vocals and the two Kenttäkumpu brothers (Janne - drums & Vesa - guitar). A couple of months later EVOCATION parted ways with the vocalist Jani Karvola due to lack of interest from his side. Thomas filled the empty spot as vocalist but also left the bass playing in EVOCATION. In 1992 two demos were recorded. The first one was recorded by demon-producer Tomas Skogsberg in Sunlight Studio and resulted in a three track and intro DEMO titled “The Ancient Gate”. Later in an interview Skogsberg named EVOCATION as “the best demo band he ever had recorded”. Previous to the second recording Christian “Kricke” Saarinen, reinforced the EVOCATION line-up as bass player. In the beginning of 1993 EVOCATION was considered as one of the most interesting Death Metal acts from Sweden, with a unique mix of the Gothenburg and Stockholm Death Metal sound. Despite the fact that several labels contacted the band, EVOCATION was put on ice in the autumn of 1993 due to musical differences.
