PHLEBOTOMIZED (HOLLAND)


Back in 1989 Tom, Lawrence and Patrick started up a band called Bacterial Disease. They were playing traditional grind/hardcore, heavily influenced by Napalm Death and Carcass. Bacterial Disease never released anything official (with covers). Late 1990 Barry (vocals) and Ben (keys) joined the band. Their first gig was in April 91 and in July 91 another gig was recorded. The band distributed these recordings as the "Live-tape" among friends and venues to get more gigs. This was not an official DEMO, only a live recording. Late 1991, a good friend of the band - Jordy - joined as the 2nd guitar player. Satisfied with this line-up, PHLEBOTOMIZED recorded the demo "Devoted To God" in February 92.  The tape was sent to all kinds of labels, and soon MMI Records from Germany offered to release some songs from the demo on a 7-INCH EP. The band agreed... This collaboration first resulted in the "In Search Of Tranquility"-EP on red vinyl (3,000 copies were pressed). Next, in August 92, PHLEBOTOMIZED hit the studio once more to record new material, initially for Cenotaph Records. These songs were to be put on another 7-INCH, but due to the length of the songs (we were never able to keep things short) and things didn't work out with Cenotaph, MMI released "Preach Eternal Gospels" as a 5-track mini-CD. During these recordings, the band experimented with a violinist named Maarten. Initially this was to be a mere studio thing, but during the rehearsals the band began to appreciate his melancholic tunes more and more... A little later Maarten became PHLEBOTOMIZED's seventh permanent member.
