NIRVANA 2002 (SWEDEN)


In the fall of 1988 two guys named Orvar and Erik decided to form a Death Metal band: they really never wanted a typical Death Metal name, so the project was called Prophet 2002. Even though no studio recording was available yet their rehearsal tapes (no covers) easily gained a lot of interest. They changed their name to Nirvana and released a porta-demo called "Truth & Beauty".  A little bit later an American band with the same name released an official 7"EP, so they added the previous suffix 2002: Two new songs have been recorded as "Excursion in 2002 (No Dimension)" or also "Excursions in the 2002 Dimension" with a song title changed and the addition of the "Krishna Extrema" outro. In 1990 the line-up was completed with Lars on bass and they entered in the famous Sunlight Studios to record "Mourning", the recording was made using the same Entombed's “Left Hand Path” equipment and assisted by Nicke and Uffe. After a while the guys signed to CBR Records that released their first professional demo tape, "Disembodied Spirits" 1991: “Mourning” appeared in the now legendary CBR compilation, "Projections of a Stained Mind": this song was supposed to be released also as a single for CBR and 2 additional tracks were recorded at Sunlight, but nothing came of it, so the planned B-sides were released as the "Promo '91". In 1992 the band had offers for an album by Deaf and Necrosis, but then they just went different ways.
