MASTEMA (SWEDEN)


Mastema was born from the ashes of Malicious Decay back in 1992. Malicious Decay split up about a month after recording the demo”Unholy Crusade”. In the beginning the line up of Mastema was Grim, Battle and Apollyon. Today Apollyon is the only original member of the band since the beginning back in 92’. After about a year of hard work in 93’ the trio entered studio TBV to record their first demo ”Mefistofeles”. In the mid 90’s Mastema moved from their home town Strömstad to a bigger city. Uddevalla was now the base for Apollyon and battle. Since their was some distance between Strömstad and Uddevalla the last page was written for Grim in the Mastema history. In Uddevalla Apollyon and Battle were rehearsing with more or less successful constellations. As time went on and they tried some guitarists only one man was good enough, Thomas”Dark” Backelin. He was now the new guitarist of Mastema and once again the band was a strong trio. Some time after Dark joined the band Chaos came along to take over the drumming so that Apollyon could focus only on being the singer of the band. During the years 97’ and 98’ Mastema recorded two promo cd’s and both of them received very good response in the underground. Now it was time for the next man to leave the band. Battle had to move to Gothenburg and because of his condition of living he could not proceed with the band. Battle was replaced with a bassist named Anders who also was active in the band ”Grief of Emerald”.
