According to the band's official bio, "TME started out as an idea of Marklund and Hägglund late summer 2002. Their goal was to create old-school trash-metal! In need for a vocalist and a rhythm guitarist they invited [Andreas] Stenlund [guitar, vocals] to play the rythm guitar and handle the screams. The first rehersal sessions took place in the dark winter of 2002/2003. Several songs were written and [Patrik] Pettersson joined in on bass [he has since been replaced by Johan Lindgren]. However autumn 2003 the project was laid on rest for a while, only to return in full force late summer 2004. Some more songs were written and in April 2005 TME entered the studio to record the drums for their demo CD. The result where seven recorded songs which were completed in DeadSound studios during the summer."
