Complete TOXAEMIA Discography To Be Made Available

Dark Descent Records will release the complete discography from classic Swedish death metallers TOXAEMIA. Due on December 15, the CD will contain everything ever issued by the band, including the "Kaleidoscopic Lunacy" and "Buried To Rot" demos and the "Beyond The Realm" EP (released by Seraphic Decay), as well as previously unreleased material recorded during the "Buried To Rot" sessions. In all, it will contain 17 songs spanning over 65 minutes of classic-era, skull-crushing Swedish death metal. The material will be sourced off of the original master tapes and remixed/remastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound Studio.

TOXAEMIA was formed by longtime friends Pontus Cervin, Emil Norrman and Stevo Bolgakov. In its first incarnation, Emil played guitar and a friend, Brun, was supposed to play the drums, with Stevo on guitar and Pontus on the bass. It became evident that Brun was not a natural drummer and Emil stepped in behind the kit while Brun took over the vocals. Brun was later replaced by Holma, who also wrote the lyrics. At this point the band went through several name changes, including MUTILATOR and then ANGUISH. New material was written and heavy rehearsing began. This led to the recording of a rehearsal tape in September 1989 called "Deadly Coronations". After this, it was not long before it was agreed that Holma would leave the vocals to Stevo and a new member, Linus Olzon, was recruited. This lineup would become TOXAEMIA.
