Biografia : Abhorrence (FIN)

Few friends had several speed/thrash metal bands and after getting into Death Metal and Grindcore, they decided to start a new band. Guitarist, Tomi (Koivusaari) left Violent Solution to do so and other guitarist, Kalle (Mattsson) along with Jukka (Kolehmainen) on Vocals and Bassist Jussi (Ahlroth) had a band called Disaster, while Drummer Kimmo (Heikkinen) had just bought drums.
The band was formed in early 1989 after playing some time under several different names, after recording one demo tape they got a suggestion to do a 7" EP, after several gigs around Finland, a short visit to Norway (one gig and a party/sleepover at Black Metal band Mayhem's house) with our second Drummer Mika 'Arkki' Arnkil (Arkki was on 'leave' from Antidote), the band broke up in 1990, shortly after this Relapse Records contacted us for a recording deal. Timing, eh?
The 7" EP was released by this rip-off label Seraphic Decay Records which was managed by this fuckface of a man, Steve O'Bannon. Whithout a written contract of anykind we lost all of the (possible) money and Steve took it all. Same happened to Xysma, Derketa and Incatation as far as i know.
