LOBOTOMY (SWEDEN)


Lobotomy hailed from Stockholm, Sweden. Their story starts back in '90 when the band arose from the ashes of Rapture. Lobotomy released their first demo-cassette 'When death draws near' in January '91. It was very well received and the band was featured in several underground publications and songs from the tape were featured on various compilation-tapes. The band got a bunch of different interests from small EP-labels and was set to record their first EP 'Instinct of brutality' in July the same year. The recording was done, but with the companies lack of money and disability to run their label, the project never was finished. But instead of wiping their tears Lobotomy recorded their now legendary demo 'Against the gods' which was released in June '92. The demo was incredibly well received and the band was featured in over 50 magazines and to this day there hasn't been published a single negative review on that demo. After this triumph the band recorded Nailed in misery in DEC '92, a cassette-EP for the Italian based Obscure Plasma Records (now called Avantgarde) but the guy who had signed the band left for Metal Hammer magazine so the EP wasn't released until June '93. The band decided to go to a new label named Rising Realm Rec. (Finland) and released 'Hymn' a seven-inch vinyl in Jan '94. The band was offered various deals from growing rec-labels and signed a deal with an Austrian based label in Sept '94. The recording took place at "SVLT Dead House" a professional 46-track digital studio with the goal of making one hell of an album, and so they did. Eleven different heavy, melodic and epic songs, which the band are very proud of. Finally Lobotomy's debut album Lobotomy was released in November '95.
